I plan to put up a new poll either today or tomorrow so it's time to take down the two I have up now. The two are completely different subjects.
The first was written in the pan-Germanic constructed language Frenkisch as a test to see how many people understood it well enough to respond. The poll question was about Belgium and what it should do as a country: stay the same, split into two, split into two and join France and the Netherlands, etc. The total number of responses was 59, slightly more than I expected.

The second was a simple 2012 US election matchup against Barack Obama and Jon Huntsman (former ambassador to China and two-time governor of Utah) to gauge the political views of Page F30's readership. The result was Obama in a landslide.
IT IS 2012 AND THE US PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES ARE BARACK OBAMA (DEMOCRAT) AND JON HUNTSMAN (REPUBLICAN). WHOM DO YOU VOTE FOR?
Barack Obama 67 (62%)
Jon Huntsman 41 (37%)
