Presidential Straw Poll 2008 – Week 5 – End of Beta-Test Period

The fifth week of the PAJAMAS MEDIA PRESIDENTIAL STRAW POLL has officially begun. With over 50,000 votes cast in the first month, the poll has passed through its beta-testing phase. We have received much feedback and tried our best to adjust accordingly. We are now opening the poll to all blogs and websites by offering a voting widget for your site. By placing this widget on your blog or website, your site can become a precinct or polling place just as in an official election. Readers will be able to vote weekly through your site and compare the voting results from that site to the total and to other individual sites. We hope that websites allied with all parts of the political spectrum will participate in this exercise in online democracy. The more who join with us, the more statistically reliable the poll is likely to be. The widget (with tech support) is available for easy installation here. Just follow the instructions at the link.

The results for the first four weeks of the poll are available to your left. From this point on, our weekly poll will be updated to those national candidates of both parties that score at least one percent on the previous month’s Gallup Poll (via RealClearPolitics).

Other features – including an election discussion forum – are coming in the next weeks.
