OK

Having watched the straw poll results coming in the last few months, I've noted that once you have a certain sized sample -- a couple of thousand of respondents -- the numbers vary little until the poll hits the various candidate fan sites, message boards, and list-servs. Then, the numbers will move significantly as legions of supporters freep the poll.

So today, I'm cutting that process short, and having given the poll a little over an hour to run and over 6,000 votes (with results changing little since the 1,000th vote), I'm going to go ahead and post the "official" results. The numbers will change (the Obama people are best at delivering votes to the poll), but this is it:

Dodd gained some serious support, while Richardson collapsed into "Biden" territory. And check out Hillary, breaking into double-digits for the first time since July 25, 2005 in this poll.

I actually voted for a candidate this month (very shallow support). Since I'm constantly accused of being a shill for one candidate or another, let's see who you guys think I voted for:
