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:

dKos Reader Poll. 9/24 -- 9:49 a.m. to 11 a.m. PT. 6,318 respondents.

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:

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.
