    I made up a term for something and it was posted at Urban Dictionary. Not the most difficult thing to do but I'm slightly proud of myself. A long time ago I noticed that on sites like Breitbart, TheDC and Gateway Pundit there would be times where every single comment agreeing with the author would have exactly 1 negative vote. It was as if someone had sat and deliberately gone through every one of the hundreds of comments with the sole intention of disagreeing with each one. So, after a awhile I made up a term for the kind of...

    Zogby online poll | July 28, 2010 | ChocChipCookie
    Every once in a while I get an email inviting me to take an online Zogby poll. These are always focused on politics, but there is one question that drives me crazy: How often do you shop at Wal-Mart? A. Every week B. A few times a month C. A couple times a year D. Never E. Other F. Not sure G. Refused So I shop at Walmart every once in a while, but this question is confusing. If I shop there every week, isn't that the same as "a few times a month"? And, "A couple of times a...

    "People were just getting together on their own," remembers Tom. "I guess you could call it grass roots." Like thousands of others, Tom downloaded phone lists so he could cold-call potential supporters in the area. Mary spent hours typing names and addresses into Obama's national database. The first paid operatives finally arrived in the area weeks later, only to find a virtually organized Obama machine already up and running. When the campaign held its first statewide training sessions in March, some 2,000 people turned up.It has gone on like this all year for Obama as his campaign deftly exploits the...

    Let's start with Wednesday night's CNN/YouTube debate. I'll have to admit. This is the most entertaining debate format of the season. While many of the questions are dumb, I like that the candidates are uneasy and having to roll with the punches. Here's a wrapup of the Republican version on Wednesday. But the biggest disappointment for me was that the guys at Red State Update didn't make the cut this time. Back in the summer, they were the hit of the Democratic Debate with a question about Al Gore. (see Joe Legge's Blog) But this time, they're questions were too...

    Senator Barack Obama scored a victory among progressive activists Wednesday, winning the Straw Poll of attendees at the Take Back America Conference in Washington. Obama received 29% of the 720 votes cast in the straw poll, narrowly beating out former North Carolina Senator John Edwards, and decisively knocking official front-runner Hillary Clinton into third place. Edwards took 26% of the vote and Clinton 17%. New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson received 9% of the vote, and 8% wrote in the name of former Vice President Al Gore, who was not listed as a candidate in the straw poll. The poll...

    Emerging from the back of the stage to a vociferous round of applause from the audience, Ron Paul quickly took a seat next to the show's host, a visible look of surprise on his otherwise placid face. Leaning into him, the host quipped that he had never seen such an animated audience before and attributed the tangible excitement in the room to Ron Paul and his appearances at the Republican debates and other talk shows. With the recent surge of support for Paul's once obscure presidential candidacy, spurred in part by the tremendous amount of buzz he's garnered online (his...

That was the unmistakable conclusion of the online poll posted by debate sponsor MSNBC, which registered Paul with higher positive ratings and lower negative numbers than any of the other nine candidates on the stage. In ABC's post-debate Internet survey showed an even clearer victory for Paul, with the congressman taking more than 9,400 of 11,000 votes as of 12:30 p.m. Monday. (Rudy Giuliani is the next ranked candidate, with barely 150 votes.) So are the polls missing a...

In the past, Freerepublic provided online poll links, DU provided online poll links, and it was usually a spirited but decent contest.

Howard Dean, who has built an extensive network of Internet-savvy supporters, is expected to get the most votes in the primary.
