View Full Version : Misc What is your political ideology or belief system?

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.

In previous polls we've already tackled the questions of race, gender and political party. When I'm done with all of my planned polls, I'll post all of the results in one thread. The next poll will be about age and I'll do a religious thread sooner or later.

Here's the fourth poll question: What is your political ideology or belief system?

I would guess that this BB is made up of mostly conservatives and liberals. But, I'm wondering what the percentages are?

From our previous polls we have some data which should help us predict the results of this poll. But, this is still just my best guess.....

I think the results will be: less than 5% socialist / communist, 20% liberal, about 25% independant, 35% conservative, 15% libertarian.

There are other political belief systems, but I think these 5 options pretty much cover 99% of the polulace here in America. If you don't see your exact ideology, just choose the one that is closest to your guiding beliefs.

I acknowledge that "independant" may not be considered a political ideology, but it serves an important purpose for this poll. I'm sure you all understand why this option was added and a long explanation is not needed.

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

This is NOT a political thread. This is just a demographics thread. It's not intended for us to have deep political discussions. That's for other forums.

This is an annonymous poll so you need not reveal your answer in a post unless you choose to do so.

Note: Don't get bent out of shape about what order I placed the options. Some of you may think the communist / socialist and the libertatian options should be placed in different spots along the political spectrum. Although I and others would argue all day with you about that, please don't worry about where the options are placed. Just choose which option suits you best. That's the intent of this poll. I'm just interested in fiding out where we all stand ideologically.

I'll keep this poll open for 3 days and bump it from time to time in order to get the most exposure possible.

It's called 'relativity' and no 'absolutes' are allowed.

There is no totalitarian choice. The poll is flawed.

LMAO This is not a political thread. Yet the first option is socialism/communism.

Sure.

Because BEP forbids it.

why not ask which party? Political party was the last poll. And I already addressed the issue of "independant" in the thread header.

I acknowledge that "independant" may not be considered a political ideology, but it serves an important purpose for this poll. There's always a large group of people in the middle who refuse to affiliate themselves with the right or the left. So, it's a way for them to identify themselves.

I believe you're an idiot for making these polls on a football message board.

If you don't believe me take a long hard look at the results Mr. Pollster.

After the first day of votes I'm surprised at these numbers. We'll see how things change. In the political party poll, the Reps. voted early and the Dems made a push late.

Communists / Socialists - 4975% !!!! Who knew that we are a bunch of Commies!
Liberals - 11%
Independants - 24%
Conservatives - 47%
Libertarians - 15%

Well, here are the final results. Communists / Socialists - Fail !!!!!!
Liberals - 13%
Independants - 23%
Conservatives - 47%
Libertarians - 16%

My original prediction:
-- less than 5% socialist / communist ( I was WAY off! )
-- 20% liberal ( many libs must have voted socialist! :D )
-- 25% independant ( pretty darn close )
-- 35% conservative ( as a conservative, I'm pleasantly surprised )
-- 15% libertarian ( right on target )
