Vox populi

Over the weekend, the little web gnomes in VOCM Valley ran the important question, "Do you think the province is moving in the right direction by recommending Elizabeth Matthews for the vice-chair position at the C-NLOPB?"

The final result, which was totally spontaneous and not at all gamed by anyone, was 76% yes, 20% now, and 4% not sure, although at several points during the weekend, the numbers were as low as 50-something yes to 40-something no.

The total number of "votes" cast was 14,252 — the highest since the December 3 question, "Was Danny Williams our best premier?" (22,853) which was decidedly mixed.

The totally spontaneous and unorchestrated outcome in that vote was 30% yes, 45% no, 24% not sure.

Looks like the poll goosing trolls are back on the job again after a few weeks vacation.

Remind me again: is it funny yet that this stuff (like CRA polls) gets reported by people with a straight face?

As a reminder Ed...yea it is very funny!!!

Actually it is quite humerous that you continually have your underwear bunched over something that doesn't mean squat.

What is also funny is your persistence to explain CRA polls. Why all the ink for something that you claim doesn't deserve any ink??
