View Full Version : ChiefsPlanet A poll: What political party do you associate your self with?

For quite some time I've been interested in the demographics of Chiefs Planet. I don't really have a reason. I'm just interested in seeing the results. Obviously, you don't have to particpate, but it works better if many do. You don't have to comment, but you are welcome to.

Here's the second poll question: What political party do you think you would most associate with and/or most agree with?

I'm not asking which party you are registered with. I'm not asking which party you would support. I'm just asking which political party most closely represents you and your political leanings. Even if you don't like any political party and even if you don't believe it political parties, you should know which party's platform is closest to your own political beliefs.

I would guess that this BB is pretty divided down the middle. I would guess, and this is just a shot in the dark, 35% Republican, 30% Democrat, 25% Independant, 10% Other.

I'm only going to post four options. Everyone should fall into one of the four categories.

Clarification: I don't think Independant is an actual party. I could be wrong. I think it's just a category for someone who wants to run for office and not declare a party affiliation. If I'm wrong, feel free to post a correction.

BTW, when I'm done posting polls, I'll post all the results in one thread. I think it will be interesting to see "who we are".

I'm sorry, but I won't be posting any Gaz options.

This is NOT a political thread. It's a demographic poll. I announce that I would be posting a series of polls almost two weeks ago. I'm not looking for political commentary in this thread. There's not much difference than my other two previous polls. This will only be a political thread if someone other than me makes is such. This is just a social experiment. I will also be posting polls about age, religion, and other topics.

No. It is Obama's fault.

No, this thread is a result of the Fed printing too much money.

No, this thread is Ayn Rand's fault.

No. This thread is really a terroristic threat from Al Queda.

No. This thread has been outsourced to China and probably contains lead paint.

So far, the Democrat and Independant results surprise me most. But, in my view, many Independants are probably Democrats. Who knows? I'm not Frank Luntz! I'm sure the results will tighten up over the next day or two. The initial results are always skewed until more data comes in.

You just don't pay a whole lot of attention to Kansas (or western missouri) politics, do you?

That doesn't really prove anything, though.

10-19-2009, 10:13 AM
You just don't pay a whole lot of attention to Kansas (or western missouri) politics, do you? My theory, based on a wild guess, is that Missouri is pretty evenly split between D & R, at least in the last few Pres. elections. Then, I figured that Kansas leans a little R. Then, I figured that there would be about 1/3 who don't like D or R and associate themselves elsewhere. Pretty simple. It's just a guess.

That doesn't really prove anything, though. It will prove that my guess was right, wrong, close or far off. Nothing more than that. It's just for fun. I find this kid of thing interesting. I have a degree in Political Science with minors in communication, American history and public administration. I've never been good at math, but statistics have always been interesting to me.

honestly, I'm probably like the majority of the people in the USA--there are some things I lean liberal on, there are some things I lean conservative on. nobody except the (low percentage) sides of the bell curve is a strict democrat or conservative.

I lean closest to libertarian. as such, I'm pissed at my country most of the time.

If I'm anything, my ideals most resemble Libertarian but I don't want to be labeled with them either. I'm in the "it's broken, fire them all, ditch the lobbyists/special interests, and start from scratch" party.

You really think people have no problem making their political views known in thread after thread, arguing their point of view ad nauseum... But at the same time are too "pussified" to admit if they are a Democrat? That's ridiculous.

I would guess you're WAY off.

It's more like 2:1 Republican : Democrat.

More if half the Republicans in the country weren't calling themselves "Independents" now in disgust.

Come to the DC Forum where there are discussions of this very topic.

Things are really starting to shape up now. For a while there, I wondered what was going on. The Independants are fading and the Dems are charging. The numbers are getting closer and closer to my original prediction. I'm still a little surprised that the Dems aren't a little higher, but it'll all probably balance out of the next day or two.

I don't follow option A or B like a sheep so just stamping Democrat or Republican doesn't do it for me. I vote issue and for who best represents me and my beliefs. In 2004 that was really hard to do. Both douchebag nutjubs, which most are. Not a big fan of voting for the lesser of two evils in an election either. Personally I think everyone should have to pass an aptitude test to vote or reproduce. The most dangerous part of a democracy is the uneducated vote, but if you don't let the dummies vote, technically you no longer have a democracy. Tough nut to crack there. Maybe let them vote on small things like feed the homeless, but not on world issues. Save that for the commoners.
