On 21 August 2010 my senate vote will go to…

If the Greens can make news with a poll of 400 people then why not have a look at how the RiotACT readership is feeling about the crucial Senate race?

On 21 August in the Senate I will give the higher preference to

  • Lin Hatfield Dodds (Greens) (52%, 366 Votes)
  • Gary Humphries (Liberals) (29%, 204 Votes)
  • Kate Lundy (ALP) (19%, 138 Votes)

Total Voters: 708

(Bear in mind internet polls should not be taken too seriously)

UPDATE Just bumping this back up the page to shoot for the magical 450+ which apparently makes it a proper sample 😉 (Sadly our fraud prevention systems exclude a lot of potential pollsters)

What’s Your opinion?

Wow, that was just like voting, and she won, wow if that happens in a big way through this election, I might never be called a dole bludger in my life, ever again 🙂

Did I ever tell you fellow rioters, how much I love voting.

I had to pre pol, just to take my vote as far away from the right as my little ballot paper would carry me 🙂

Greens 1, then, allllllllllllll the way down the bottom, liberal, so far past 1, well you know last, where if my vote counts, should retire the theives.

I’v been locked up, for protesting, by mistake so my daughter could be stolen, still, very very angry about that gary.

Toni, when you, as I hope you do, you know loose the election. I, unfortunately caught you drooling all over a little girl who said she would have voted for you, You perhaps should lower the voting age to, if you can fill out your name and address, you can vote 🙂

I wanna make your wish come true toni, however, if that little girl wasn’t you know, one of yours, I think she only said that to get rid of you, I could be wrong, but if I were that little girl, and I knew what a lier you are, and what you are talking about doing to the dole.

You’ve obviously got connections toni, and wealth, why take power, why don’t you go somewhere where you aren’t gonna hurt anyone, you can afford it, me and everyone I know I thinking about $6000, that we don’t have to have a baby for, thinking, labors getting it, the have forgotten what it feels like to be poor, and are probably sick of being attacked from the right for trying to help the lumpenproletariat.

Don’t give up, I hope the Greens give you a mandate to clean up the scum on the right, I think I’m begining to enjoy politics in a hole new way 🙂

I’m not surprised to see Lin Hatfield Dodds looking so popular. I spent 3 years working in the not for profit sector (health area) and I’ve always heard Lin described as a successful manager with a good grasp of policy.

It’s great to see the Greens finding a candidate with experience in running a successful organisation and a genuine passion for doing what’s right.

It also probably helps the Greens that Canberra voters are politically aware and understand that they can give first preference to Greens (or even the silly party) without “throwing away their vote” as preferences have equal weight. I’ve also heard Canberra people tell me that they will vote Green knowing that there will never be a Greens majority in Parliament because they see the value in having just a few Greens in Parliament to represent the human interest (even if they don’t necessarily trust a Greens Government).

What about Kerrie Tucker, she was alright?

I’m tired of Aborigines taking everybody’s jobs!

No doubt the Nanny State ,Ban everything and piss on Australians ‘Implied?” rights crew will get in regardless of who wins. Pretty soon helmets will be compulsory for pedestrians.

F**k that shit I’m voting for Norris

Haha, good response. They’ll do!

Why isn’t there an option in the poll for “I’ll draw a penis on the ballot paper”?

Or even a few genuine loonies to liven things up.

Greens. How the heck else are we going to get the ACT in on the pork?

Thumper 12:18 pm 11 Aug 10

I’m all the way with LBJ, or hitting the tar with Obama, or wax and polishing as I clean with Mr Sheen.

Hang on…

Aye, the problem with internet polls is that they’re self-selecting and not demographically weighted.
