    Isn't Hilary Duff a bit young (under 35)? Don't know what else she'd bring to the table, unless you just want to test how many would vote for her because they know the name...at the other end, while I love Gore Vidal he is getting on in years--he would be nearly 80 by 2008.

    •  Yes, and that's the whole point (none)
      How many people would see 'Gore' and think it was AL Gore? How many people would see 'Clinton' and not see any further?

      Better yet, put just 'George Clinton' and 'Hilary Duff' and see how many people don't see anything other than 'Clinton' and/or 'Hilary' - it's on a political poll, so it must be a politician, even if the name isn't what they think it should be.

      Or they might not even read the whole name, which is what I'd suspect happens. We often see what we want and expect to see, not what's REALLY there.
