Poll of the Day Results

March 28th- What Do You Think of Michelle Obama’s Attire?

  • 82% of votes said they are like me and have ZERO problem with the First Lady showing a little arm, while the remaining 18% want to slap some slap sleeves some leaves on her.  Come on people, it’s the 21st Century!

March 29th- What Do You Think of the KCA Green Movement?

  • In one of the closest polls in Conservative Journal history, 52% of voters disagree with me and think the Kids Choice Awards preaching of going green was great.  The remaining 48% think like me, that global warming is simply too controversial to be the central theme of a kids award show.  I compare to making evolution the theme of a kids award show.

March 30th- What Do You Think of the KCA’s Hypocrisy?

  • Naturally, 88% of voters said the hypocrisy the KCS’s showed at their after party was horrible.  12% of voters, however, think it’s fine to talk about saving the planet like it’s the biggest deal in the world, and then haul thousands and thousands of paper plates, plastic cups, etc. to the dump.

March 31st- Who Was Your Favorite on American Idol?

  • For the second consecutive week, voters chose Adam Lambert as their favorite with 17%,  Kris Allen was in second with 15% of the vote, Danny Gokey and Allison Iraheta tied with 13% (Danny had more actual votes though), Lil Rounds had 12% of the vote, Scott MacIntyre had 10% of the vote, Anoop Desai received 8% of the vote, Megan Joy received 6%, and Matt Giraud came in lats with 4% of the vote.  The remaining percentage said they don’t watch.  Unfortunately, we wrong and Megan Joy ended up leaving American Idol.  She will be missed.

April 1st- Conference, No Poll.

April 2nd- Conference, No Poll.

April 3rd- What Do You Think of Bill O’Reilly’s Boycott of Sean Penn?

  • 41% of voters said they are also boycotting Sean Penn, 35% understand why Bill is doing it, but aren’t boycotting Sean, 18% think it’s stupid, and the remaining 6% don’t know/don’t care.  I think I fall into the “good for Bill” cateogory.  I don’t watch Sean Penn movies, but just because their topics don’t interest me.

Poll of the Day Results

March 21st- Who Do You Think Changed the Wikipedia Page?

  • We presented the evidence, and you voted to find the culprit.  In the end, the person you all thought is the conspirator of WikiGate was clear.  And that person is………. Joy Behar!  Joy was my pick also, as the evidence against her was compelling.  Here are the details:  Joy Behar had 35% of the vote, Michael Moore had 19% of the vote, Nancy Pelosi had 17% of the vote, Barney Frank had 15% of the vote, and Al Gore had 14% of the vote.

March 22nd- What Do You Think of the 2012 Poll Results?

  • In a vote that remained close all week, readers of The Conservative Journal sided with the poll that predicted Barack Obama would beat Sarah Palin if they faced off in 2012.  42% of our readers think that the results were accurate, while 39% think Sarah Palin could take Barack down.  The remaining 19% don’t know.

March 23rd- What Do You Think of Charlie Rangel?

  • Looks like I’m in good company around here as a Charlie Rangel hater, as 81% of readers of the site voted that Charlie Rangel has got to go.  A mere 5% voted everyone should just back off, and the remaining 14% don’t care enough to form an opinion.

March 24th- What Do You Think of Meghan McCain’s Interview?

  • Looks like there isn’t much Meghan love here at The Conservative Journal, as 38% of our readers don’t care enough about her to read the recap of her Larry King interview, or to watch it back online.  34% of our readers thought it was horrible and boring, while the remaining 28% loved the interivew.

March 25th- Who Was Your Favorite on American Idol?

  • For our inaugural “No Politics Tuesday” day, we asked who our readers thought was the best on American Idol.  Our readers chose Adam Lambert as the best with 20% of the vote.  The remaining contestants stacked up like this: Allison Iraheta received 16%, Danny Gokey received 12%, Lil Rounds received 9%, Kris Allen received 8%, Anoop Desai received 7%, Megan Joy received 5%, Matt Giraud received 4%, Scott MacIntyre recieved 3%, and Michael Sarver recieved 1%.  The remaining 14% of readers don’t watch.  It’s also worth noting that our readers not only predicted the bottom 3 accurately, but predicted who was going home as well.

March 26th- Did Watch Obama’s Press Conference?

  • 53% of Conservative Journal readers watched the press conference, but fell asleep at some point through the itnerview, 24% of readers didn’t watch because they’d rather have been watching The Wheel of Fortune, 18% couldn’t work it into their schedule, and a mere 6% watched it and enjoyed it.
