The WORST POTUS Survey
« on: July 25, 2015, 05:38:01 PM »

I haven't dropped any new surveys onto the Diner since we had all the problems in June, which probably were not related to The Human Extinction Survey, but nonetheless it has made me skittish about using that plugin.

Besides that though, it doesn't have a means for doing a Ranking Answer, which is something I have been looking for in a Polling system.  I believe I finally found one!  It's off-site, so it poses no threat to the Diner server.  It's also FREE up to 50 responses anyhow.  :icon_sunny:

After you go to the page, you just slide the worst choice to the top of the list, the least worst to the bottom.  It's not a complete list of all possibilities, but I think I got most of the main contenders in the horse race to be the Leader of an Empire in Collapse for the next 4 years.

Once you are done with your sort, you hit the Finished Sorting  radio button and then the Finish Sorting submit button.

Who do you think is the WORST choice among this crowd to lead us down the Collapse Highway?

Oh come on.  You just put your cursor over the little cross, click on it and use your mouse to slide it up or down.

How long have you been using computers anyhow?  lol.

The WORST POTUS survey already has 17 respondents!  :icon_sunny:  Maximum on the Free Account is 50, so I should be able to publish the results by the end of the weekend.

The overall rankings don't seem to be changing too much as more rankings come in.

Guesses from Diners on who is at the TOP of the WORST in ranking are :hi:  :icon_mrgreen:

In terms of the Top 2 Contenders for the Throne, Jeb & Hil, which one do you think is ranked worse by the Doomers here and on r/collapse?  Do you think they are ranked better or worse than The Donald?

This is a very good system.  I am going to start a new Collapse Poll of the Day with it.   :icon_mrgreen:

If it works out, I may even cough up for a Pro Account to get full stats, downloads, unlimited stat storage etc.  However, I think the free account will work fine for the most part so I will stick with that for a while.

37 respondents now.  We'll easily cap it off tomorrow at the 50 Max for the Free account I set up.

I can tell you right now these are VERY interesting Survey results!

First off, from the first 12 respondents to the current 36, the rankings haven't changed much if at all.  That means you don't need a real huge sample from the Doomer Community to get an idea of what the zeitgeist is in this group.

The results also indicate to me how much the media and current spin affects thinking, even for Doomers.  It's fascinating.

I should have final poll results tomorrow.

I took it over. If the first response is identical to the original list, that's the one I did wrong. Please delete.

Hard to  pick out somebody I like, but so easy to pick ones I don't. Trump, Cruz, and Walker are all three about the same, and would be listed just below the Antichrist on any list, as far as I'm concerned. Rubio isn't much better, and Bush is sort of a Republican Hillary, came to do good and stayed to do very well, thank you. Perry is functionally identical, but just a dumb tool for the money interests (don't be fooled by the glasses. He did not pick them out personally.)

Hillary sucks. A false populist, her. Wants the poor to vote for her and make her richer and really, really powerful.

Of those listed, it's the Socialist or the non-candidate Warren, who has been warned off by the Demo money people and will not be drafted this time out, imho.

So...could I vote for the Socialist plaintiff's attorney? Probably not. Plaintiffs' attorneys are not the profession I think of when I consider things like honor, ethics, fairness, etc.

Maybe I won't vote after all.

But imho it will come down to a Clinton v. Bush,Walker, or Rubio. The real question is whether I'd vote for Hillary, whom I happen to abhor, to keep out a Walker.

Tough choice.

It's awful early, so much of this ahead of us it's tough to make a call.

My current idea is Bush Hillary, and my thoughts are focused on who will be their VP picks.

Have an Idea their choices for VP will be of the utmost importance this election.

The WORST POTUS Survey: Results!
« Reply #10 on: July 26, 2015, 03:11:16 PM »
First 76 results!  It went over 50 and is still going.  :icon_sunny:

In order to see who is ranked worst, look at the far right hand column.  The lowest number out of 12 is considered the worst candidate by Doomers.

Unsurprisingly, it is The Donald.

The Least Worst Candidate is Bernie Sanders with a 10.28, edging out Liz Warren with a 9.34

Hil is Less Worse than Jeb 5.87 to 4.22
