    Any luck with getting Survey Monkey to take your payment to release the rest of the data from the first one?

    Appreciate the work putting that poll together and publishing the results.

    It’s not easy. I have to check for fraud and duplicates. Vermin Supreme fanatics flooded the poll which makes it even more difficult. However they did provide good insights. Most will vote for Biden or Hawkins in the general election, some even if Supreme is on the ballot. Final results will be tomorrow at the earliest.

    How do you determine duplicates? For example, I have more than one person at this house, so I’m guessing we would come up with the same IP. Other people are likely in the same situation.

  5. You think?

    So my wife and my daughter are both fans of the same person I am. I had to break their hearts and let them know that because we all came from the same IP, only my vote counted.

    So you’re calling the results invalid because Vermin has an actual fan base who are voters??

    Is there not going to be any results due to the problem of multiple votes from the same IP address?

    I hope no legit votes are thrown out if they happen to live together or be at the same location, have the same answers and post one right after the other.

    I went through the results and didn’t find any duplicates. The only responses I excluded were incomplete with only the state of residence filled out. I have the final results but still have to do tallies.

    Irv and sequential runoff have different dynamics. Also how was the poll flooded with vermin supporters yet Jorgensen wins?

  11. Anthony Dlugos

    Maybe the same thing happens with Vermin that happened with Petersen…didn’t he have a serious poll-flooding crew, then a loud and dedicated and boisterous following at the Convention that ultimately amounted to about 20% of the delegates?

    I just don’t know why we would assume flooding rather than genuine support levels. Winning the dues paying membership contest isn’t just having an online poll crew. Neither was hugely increasing LPNH paid memberships.

    Supreme won the poll overall but Jorgensen won with the delegates.

    Most of the Vermin Supreme supporters were not delegates or party members.

    The flood of votes for Supreme came in as soon as he posted the poll on his Facebook page.

    Thanks for the explanation. That makes sense since his page has tons of followers:
