    Not that this will be scientific or definitive -- I don't even care much for polls..

    But, I'm curious if political allegiances in the technical and science professions tend to lean a particular way..

    1) ONLY VOTE if you are currently employed as a scientist or engineer currently engaged in similar research, education, development or high tech capacity.

    2) DO NOT VOTE if your primary occupation is as a Primary or Secondary educator (sorry -I'll explain later).

    sorry, I bombed your poll, as I vote on the home page rather than the main page of the thread.

    Good Question... The diff is that I KNOW this is junk science. I just figured if the results are interesting enough, R-D would have to spend HIS TIME debunking junk science for a change. Then perhaps he'll know how hard it is to be the deniers and the skeptics...

    Whoops -- did I just bias the poll??

    Oh well -- most polls are intentionally biased from the start..
    :tongue:

    Carry on -- this could be an earthshaking political science breakthru.. Or not..
