    True, but with the decision, it will probably get worse and blame will not be able to be placed on candidates.

    The numbers voting in this poll certainly indicate that Mitt has folks participating here. The glaring disparity should be obvious to anyone who actually clicks on the actual number of voters.

    Yes, this poll should have been put in the 2012 Presidential Election forum so it could not be spammed. The dishonesty of the right reeks.

    So how would you interpret the glaring disparity in these numbers when you click on who voted for which alternative?

    Negative campaigning because before a candidate could only go so negative without it hurting his campaign. Now that anyone can launch ads it can go much more negative negative because the ads may not hurt the candidates.

    I don't interpret the "glaring disparity"... it's an obscure debate site poll.. it's not worth putting any thought into it.

    the issue itself is of more importance that the votes in the poll.
