Alright look, TBR's polling, which I applaud due to how much time and effort he has put into it, is showing results that I find a little eyebrow-raising..... Namely that SeventhProfessor has more 2nd-place votes than 1Harder has 1st-place votes, that Geogeer has more 1st-place votes than 1Harder does, and that Geogeer has more than 3 first-place votes to begin with..... ( https://script.google.com... )

So im releasing a poll myself, but this time im using Survey Money and using some of its security features to try to crack down on double votes....

Ive also made it that people who vote on the poll can see results of the poll right away, since that apparently is an option on SurveyMonkey that is by default left 'off' unlike pollcode, which is the one I normally use.

Friendly reminder that not leaving your name in the box for question 2 is something I can see, meaning your vote wont count if you dont give a proper response for it...... Mr. "Me"

I scrubbed 2 votes, one of was for me which left their name as 'money d*ck power b*tch'.... So here are the results (I rounded to the nearest whole number so the % might not add up evenly to 100%)

http://www.debate.org...

DK 28%

1Harder 14%

Imabench 36%

Geogeer 14%

Not voting 5%

Unsure 5%

I've voted, but I'll just caution that a poll made by a presidential candidate will lead to biased sampling because your supporters are more likely to look at your poll. So don't be too happy yet :P

Perhaps, but i didnt mail out this poll to anyone before or after I made it, and I also didnt make it to test out my support, I made it to test out the support of others in the race

So don't be too happy yet :P

I can read what people submit for the second question though to negate fake or duplicate votes. It isnt bullet-proof but its certainly not something you can easily get around
