Nate Silver tweets results of Daily Kos presidential straw poll

2 min read

Election maven Nate Silver has taken note of our humble l’il community’s presidential preferences, which means we’re on the vanguard of … something. A Kamala Harris surge, maybe?


This pleases me, because Nate Silver called me (okay, all of us) a high-information Democratic activist. And that’s the first time anyone has ever appended “-information” to the usual descriptor people use for me.

Also, I voted for Harris, which is exciting because I usually pick the candidate no one cares about. (I stand by my primary vote for Dennis Kucinich, in case you're wondering.)

Of course, this wasn’t a scientific poll, but it may be a fair indication of where the zeitgeist is at this early date.

It’s too early to declare a frontrunner, but to my untrained eye (and Silver’s trained one, apparently), it seems at least noteworthy.


Yo! Dear F*cking Lunatic: 101 Obscenely Rude Letters to Donald Trump by Aldous J. Pennyfarthing is now available at Amazon! Buy there (or at one of the other fine online retailers carrying it), or be square.


But wait, there’s more! The Fierce, Fabulous (and Mostly Fictional) Adventures of Mike Ponce, America’s First Gay Vice President is also available at Amazon! You can get two great political humor ebooks for less than the price of the coffee you’ll be spitting out on your tablet when you read them!
