I agree, 18 responds is such a poor turnout, the only thing it predicts is that the members here aren't interested in polling!
Is it that they are not interested in polls or are we just sick of political discussions.
I live in New Hampshire and we are being bombarded with phone calls, junk political mail, radio TV ads and our highways look like a dumping ground for political signs. And this has been going on since last summer.
“No man's life, liberty or property is safe while the legislature is in session.”
