we realize it's unscientific, but still gives us more hope!
You have to sign in, either with your AOL IM screen name or register, and you can only vote ONCE!

At first, allowed non-members to participate and McCain won by a landslide so they then started restricting it to only members and you had to sign in with your password. McCain still won. I have no idea why this is. The liberal side usually wins AOL polls.
Perhaps it’s the anonymous voting vs. the phone calls where folks are not willing to say they’re not voting for Barry.
