My Own Exit Poll

I figured the media is so big on exit polls, why not create one for my readers? To be eligible, you must have voted in the 2006 General Election.

These results will not be used to project the winner(s) of any particular office sought. The answers will merely represent the opinions of the readers and passers-by of this blog and small media outlet.

Participate as far down the poll as you are able (example: a voter in MT can only respond to the first block of questions; a voter in Thermopolis, Wyoming can respond to the second block as well; A voter in Ralston, WY can fill in all three blocks).

Thank you for your participation!

National Participants:

  1. With what party are you registered?
  2. Overall, how did you tend to vote?
  3. Did you break from your party line in any partisan race? If yes, please list and explain.
  4. What were the deciding factors in your voting decisions?
  5. Did you vote early or absentee? If so, how far ahead?
  6. If you voted today, how long was your wait time at the poll?

Statewide (Wyoming) Participants:

  1. How long have you lived in the state?
  2. How informed about the candidates did you feel?
  3. Where did you get most of your information about the candidates?
  4. What role did media opinion polls play in your vote?
  5. Were PAC endorsements such as the NRA, Nat’l Right to Life, Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife, an influence on your vote?
  6. Did you vote opposite of any group that you would normally go along with? If yes, which one(s) in which race(s)?
  7. Did you give a definitive up or down vote on the amendments and judicial retentions?

Park County, WY Participants:

  1. How many campaign signs did the wind steal from your yard?
  2. What was the reasoning behind your vote in the County Clerk’s race?
  3. Did you vote on all three four-year county commissioners?
