the beauty of online polls.

The downside of putting up online polls on your website is that you don't always get the response you'd like. Take this poll from Calgary North West PC MLA Greg Melchin's website...


Survey of the Month
How would you rate Premier Stelmach's first session?

Below Average 87.2%
Average 8.1%
Satisfactory 3.5%
Excellent 1.2%
Total Votes: 86

Online polls. Easy to have fun with...

UPDATE! It's 3:40PM and it looks like Greg Melchin's Constituency Staff have been keeping themselves busy over the past couple hours...

Survey of the Month
How would you rate Premier Stelmach's first session?

Excellent - 62.7%
Satisfactory - 17.4%
Below Average - 16.2%
Average - 3.7%
Total Votes: 628

And I'm still trying to figure out what the difference is between 'Satisfactory' and 'Average.'

(Larry Johnsrude also picked up this up on his blog)


ANOTHER UPDATE: It's 7:29PM and it looks like a battle has begun on Greg Melchin's website poll between pro- and anti- Stelmachian forces...
Survey of the Month
How would you rate Premier Stelmach's first session?
Below Average 44.9%

Excellent 41.3%
Satisfactory 11.4%
Average 2.4%
Total Votes: 965
I bet you Greg Melchin's website has never received this much attention...

There are clearly some people with nothing better to do than vote in meaningless internet polls...

I believe "satisfactory" and "average" mean the same thing.
