Losers

This poll is pretty good at picking losers.

Call this poll a "Survey" and see the results.

The straw poll results are skewed probably because Ron Paul followers use a Google alert for the words "Straw Poll". If you were to change it to "Primary Survey" or the like, you'll probably see a better result.

Call it what you want...

...it's unhackable and we're winning. Sounds like you're just whining.
