Well if you click 100 times on Rick Santorum, I guarantee his vote count will go up by 100. and there's no way that he's getting 100 votes in the 30
seconds it takes to do this.
And just looking at the first few pages of the link you gave, a couple of things jump out at me. First, I'm surprised by the favorability rating of
Gingrich, although according to the poll it was even higher a year or two ago. I don't know if he can become a serious contender or not, but you
gotta love him in the debates, at least.
But the thing that concerns me about this poll, being a Ron paul supporter, is that, as his recognition rises, so does his unfavorable rating while
his favorable rating stays about the same. While 7% more people now know who he is than did in the April poll, his unfavorable rating increased by the
same amount. This shows me that the media is doing a good job of turning the public against him.
I don't know how most online polls work, although I have voted in quite a few of them, I've never tried to cheat the poll. All I know, is that for
this particular poll, I am able to vote as many times as I want and each vote will be counted. Hell, just for kicks, I might go vote 25,000 times for
Bachman, just to see what the media says when she wins another poll.
