I was out of commission yesterday after I spilled delicious hot soup on my Macbook Pro, killing it dead. As such, I wasn't able to update these numbers quicker. Right off, the number of respondents is much higher than usual, and there's some question as to whether the poll was "hacked". Looking through the logs, we didn't find any evidence of that. Googling around, I did find quite a bit of efforts by supporters of the various campaigns to send their readers over to vote, to "freep" the poll. And there was a big traffic boost early this week thanks to the Craig and Gonzales news. So the bigger numbers can be explained by those things.

There's not much I can do to prevent freeping beyond limiting voting to just registered users (which I'd rather not do). It is an online poll, after all. So like any online poll, take with the requisite grain of salt.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
