    Don't love the choices but still have 90+% voting generally for personal freedom and responsibility. Not sure it means anything except that people outside of DC and Ct actually voted.

    Online polls are utterly useless... participants are self-selected. Fun to play with, but not scientific or reliable in any way.

    Is there some hypothetical use for this poll? If it is to increase awareness and traffic at TWT, then it is hardly useless. If it is thought persuasive, as a push-poll ...

    I want to take over the world and kick the Pittsburgh Steelers to the CFL, and stop the use of the designated hitter, after that what ron73440 said.
