Here are some basic stats based on the 208646 submissions to the form as of 2007 Dec 21.



The people above are ranked based on how often they are computed to be one of the top three choices for users who submit their political choices. A log entry is made each time a user submits their choices. This log entry contains, among other things, the top three choices for that user. What you see above is a tally of all the choices, weighted by their position for each user. We'll call that the number of Hot Pockets they have earned. The first-place candidate gets 3 Hot Pockets, the second-place candidate gets 2, and the third-place candidate gets 1 Hot Pocket (which everyone knows is just not enough). This method gives you a more fair representation of the interests of the users.

You would probably be interested to know that Kucinich has been the first choice of 113001 people (out of 208646). That wasn't my intention or expectation when making this site, but it is certainly interesting.




Without any weighting, the above graph plots only the number of times a candidate was ranked first.




Above you get to see what the other people chose on the various issues. This should shed some light on the order of the candidates in the graph above it. These numbers use the weights that users selected when they submitted their data.




This graph plots the weights for each issue that the users selected when they submitted their choices, regardless of whether they were for or against each particular issue.
