Tell us what you think! Visit the PAJAMAS MEDIA PRESIDENTIAL STRAW POLL Round Table discussion forum and explain your vote. Start a thread about your favorite candidate, the latest news from the fundraising race, Fred Thompson’s acting ability, or Barack Obama’s nonexistent tie. All topics surrounding the presidential race are welcome. And please take it easy on your fellow Americans. We welcome heated debate, but not in the model of Burr and Hamilton. Have at it, and have fun.
Be sure sure to follow the ins and outs of the poll and the campaign on the Corn & Miniter Show. Pajamas Washington editor Richard Minter and Nation Washington Editor David Corn duke it out from the right and the left weekly on Pajamas Video. See the latest Corn & Miniter HERE with Eli Lake sitting in for Rich.
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.
Other features – including an election discussion forum, graphs of trends and interviews – are coming soon.
