Here's a New Polling Strategy - Which Democratic Candidate Do You Hate Most? [View all]

Note: This poll is satirical in nature.

I'm thinking maybe our primary election ballots should be in that form. Vote for the candidate you hate, and the candidate with the fewest votes becomes our Democratic nominee. This poll doesn't list every candidate, since there are only 10 available entries. It lists the most talked-about ones, though. The ones not listed are very unlikely to win, anyhow.

I agree. It is not a good approach. MineralMan Apr 2019 #10
I jury voted on it as such. This has consequences that are too ugly to entertain on DU. ancianita Apr 2019 #18

I did. Yes. It's a ridiculous way to choose nominee, isn't it? MineralMan Apr 2019 #11
Glad you see it as such. In my view, it's informational, maybe a good indicator of our weaknesses ancianita Apr 2019 #19

I am hardly one to avoid taking risks, as MineralMan Apr 2019 #24
