I don't care
One of the choices is "I don't care".
It's a trivial matter that make no difference in the larger scheme of things.
The economy isn't going to suddenly rebound because he doesn't use his middle name.
Matthew 10:34Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.
"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
I find your conclusion that it "make [sic] no difference in the larger scheme of things" to be weird. Does every poll question have to have the purpose of making a difference in the larger scheme of things? If so, please enlighten me.
Same with your comment about the economy. Who said anything about the economy?

I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
We have the Russians placing warships to the south of us.
The worst economic crisis since the Great Depression.
A federal Government that wants to place troops inside the United States.
We are selling our country to China and other foreign countries in a futile effort to save the economy.
We are at "war" in a foreign country.
In light of those things, whether or not someone uses their middle name during a ceremony seems especially trivial.
