Wednesday, January 02, 2008 Political Action: Silly Polling Project Political Action: Democracy in Action sent me this chart showing 30,000 members votes to date for Democratic candidates.

In typical fashion this email comes with no way to reply -- a weird set up for a progressive political operation.

Then when you look at the content of the poll-- no candidate gets more than 25% -- and Moveon-- a group I belong to-- has decided -- without asking me or anyone else I know-- that they won't endorse until someone comes in with 50% or more.

In other words -- by the time they endorse, California will have voted and who cares?

Why not practice first, second and third choices now and make an endorsement sooner than later.

But have you ever tried to get a response from this outfit?

It is worse than writing a letter to the editor of the New York Times -- who at least send you an automatic reply acknowledging your note.

I take it the poll is a marketing gimmick.

What do you think?
