Vote for Ron Paul in this fake poll!!! Hurry!! He's losing to attract more traffic from us!! (sarcasm)Submitted by TylerLiberty on Wed, 06/15/2011 - 06:01
Please please please please PLEASE do not waste your and everyone else's time on voting and sharing fake polls.
Examples of fake polls:
This URL was created June 7th
The first reported "poll" results, which came 29 hours after the URL was registered shows Mitt Romney with 7865.
Yet, 153 hours later, right now, Mitt Romney only has 111 more votes with 7976. Statistically, that doesn't sound right.
Today there's another fake poll being spread around:
This URL was created 16 hours ago, and again we have the same situation.
Do you honestly believe after seeing polls on popular known sites, that Tim Pawlenty can get 1259 votes or Rick Santorum can get 1596 votes with in 16 hours???
NO. They didn't get that many votes in the recent National Review poll. How are they going to get more than twice as many votes on a website that's only been up for 16 hours???
ALL I'm asking, is that if you find a poll from an unknown site, please investigate the site a little bit. Find out if the only thing on the entire URL is the poll, like the two examples. Also, do a whois query at http://whois.domaintools.com
If it has only been up for a very short period of time, and there are well over 10,000 votes, it's fake.
The whole point of making these fake polls is to drive traffic from the losing contenders' supporters, us. And then the owners of the sites make money from advertisements. PLEASE do NOT waste everyone's time by spreading these FAKE POLLS. If you see one being spread, please comment and let the person know it's fake.
