A REMINDER to all blogs and websites: We now offer a voting widget for your site.
Over 300 blogs and websites have already registered as precincts (polling places) in the Straw Poll with this widget!
By placing the widget on your blog or website, your site can become one of these precincts or polling places 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 eight weeks of the poll are available to your left. This weekly poll has been updated to those national candidates of both parties that score at least one percent on the most recent Gallup Poll. This week Fred Thompson and Ron Paul have been added to the poll.
Other features – including an election discussion forum, graphs of trends and interviews – are coming soon.
