Poll vote time!

We're due for our monthly North Carolina poll this week and we'll do one other state poll. Your choices are:

-Connecticut. Haven't polled the state since March and with Chris Shays' entry into the Senate race, interested to see if this one should be added to the list of seats Democrats really need to worry about.

-Florida. Always worth looking at the Presidential race there and interested in seeing if the Perry surge is extending to that state. Perry wins there and it could be close to game over if he's already won Iowa and South Carolina.

-Missouri. Interested to see just how bad Peter Kinder's doing and what kind of shape Republican alternatives would be in, as well as how Claire McCaskill's holding up in these times of record low approval numbers for Barack Obama.

-New Hampshire. Given the amazing numbers Rick Perry's putting up nationally right now I have to think he's gained a good bit of ground on Mitt Romney even in the Granite State...is that firewall starting to collapse?

-West Virginia. Clearly the most competitive Gubernatorial race in the country this year and Joe Manchin's another Democratic Senator up next year who may or may not be vulnerable.

Voting's open for the next 24 hours, don't cheat.

Have you guys ever considered doing a "check box" (select any number/approval voting) style polls instead of a "radio button" (select one/plurality voting) polls for these "where to poll" questions?

I vote for New Hampshire.

I wish to see Perry in New Hampshire.

Oops, I think I already voted yesterday. My bad. Sorry. Voted for MO yesterday. Forget my WV vote from today, that was my evil twin from a parallel universe.

Will you include Palin for these polls or will you drop her ?

I'm in favor of dropping her.

You can replace her with Ron Paul, because Quinnipiac came out with a new poll today and they have Ron Paul in 4th place - after Perry, Romney and Bachmann.

What about trying an Instant Runoff voting/ ranking vote one week. That would be fun!!

MicroPoll doesn't support ranked ballots.

IRV would be a ton of work.

Approval would be a click.

(Not to far off from trying those voting systems in real elections...)
