Website poll indicates little interest in presidential race

Sunday, January 13, 2008

More than 140 online readers responded to The Brazil Times' recent online poll and, if the poll is accurate, readers aren't that interested in the current presidential race.

The Times asked its online readers "How closely are you following the debates, caucuses and primaries?"

Readers were given three options to choose from, including:

* Extensively,

* Only when it's on the news, and

* No chance.

Of the 148 readers that responded, 60 (40.5 percent) stated they only followed the race when it was on the news.

A total of 51 responders (34.5 percent) said they were following the race extensively while 37 (25 percent) had no interest in the race.

Three readers responded to the poll question as well.

One reader stated, "No need to watch, I'll be voting for Ron Paul," while another reader stated, "I love politics and I want (Barack) Obama to get president."

The final responder stated, "(Obama) scares me. He is not what he seems to be. In my opinion, he is a wolf in sheep's clothing. Be aware, America. Don't be fooled."

The current Times' poll is "Who will win the 2008 Super Bowl?"

There are four teams left in the playoff race, with the defending Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts falling to San Diego Sunday and the New York Giants beating Dallas.

Readers may choose either the Chargers, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers or New York.
