Huff tops Grchan in blog poll

A recent poll asking Inside Dope readers who they preferred in the upcoming Rock Island County Sheriff primary has just closed after running a week, and the results are in.

Huff over Grchan, 29 to 21 votes.

Fully half of the total votes had to be discarded due to naughty people voting more than once (I TOLD you they'd be removed... you didn't believe me?)

These including one industrious individual who voted 11 times for Huff, and another voting enthusiast who not only voted 11 times for Huff, but voted twice for Grchan for good measure. Hedging his bets, I suppose.

There were a total of 100 votes cast, 50 of which were invalid duplicate votes.

The raw totals were Grchan, 43 votes, Huff, 57

After eliminating all duplicates, the 50 remaining vaild votes came to:

Huff - 29 votes or 58%

Grchan - 21 votes or 42%

As a commenter noted, judging by the last two poll results, it seems that Inside Dope readers have a preference for challengers. Whether that reflects the real world remains to be seen.

I do believe this is a true measure of how the voters feel in the Rock Island County area.

It is definately time for a change.

I guess we found out who the best man is in a cyber election.

Though, I predict the real vote percentage to be: Huff 62% / Grchan 38%

You should talk to the Jacobs crowd about how valid online polls are. Should be an interesting discussion.

As usual, you're speaking too soon.

And will someone please organize an intervention to go over and turn this person's caps lock key off?

I think the two polls that you have run are wonderful. I feel that you should run a poll for Governor of the state of Illinois. That would be very interesting.

You think it's real tight between Eisendrath and Blagojevich?


Or do you mean a poll on the Republican primary?

The General is to far away. I don't think it is tight but not all races are. I think it sets as a good barometer.

You're the man!

Now you're talking.

Could I use your predictions to start a thread on the subject?

you ask about the gov race being to one sided. your bloggers think it is as close as they see the Jacobs Rumler race.

Anon above.

I'm sorry, but I'm not able to figure out what you're saying (or asking?).

Care to try again?
