Presidential Straw Poll 2008 – Week 9
The ninth week of the PAJAMAS MEDIA PRESIDENTIAL STRAW POLL has officially begun. Bill Richardson and Rudy Giuliani were again winners in the eighth week. Barack Obama and Mitt Romney (gaining) were runners-up on the Democratic and Republican sides respectively. And now... with over 75,000 votes cast in the PJM poll... it's time for some interpretation of the results... Forget Hannity & Colmes - it's Corn & Miniter ... or is it Miniter & Corn? In any case, premiering later this week, Pajamas Media Washington Editor Richard Miniter and Nation Magazine Washington Editor David Corn will be duking it out weekly over the poll and the candidates on Pajamas Video from their soon-to-regular-table at Johnny's Half Shell on Capitol Street in the nation's capitol.

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.
