Have you filled out the AFA poll on homosexual marriage yet?
The poll is here.

I oppose legalization of homosexual marriage and "civil unions" 32.12% (209093 votes)
I favor legalization of homosexual marriage 59.69% (388507 votes)
I favor a "civil union" with the full benefits of marriage except for the name 8.19% (53308 votes)

Considering the AFA's agenda (they're big on the whole 'protection of marriage' thing) I wonder if they'll go through with giving the poll results to Congress like they claimed they would. Or if they'll monkey with things to 'disqualify' enough votes to swing it their way.

Why yes, yes I have added my opinion to the poll. I fully expect to be one of the many votes the AFA finds some way to disqualify, as I am fully in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage.

The best guess I've heard so far is that the only emails they're going to verify as legitimate are ones who're already on their own membership roster.

The phrase "self-selecting sample," and the aura of invalidity that goes with it, is one of the first things taught in any reputable communications research class. I wish more people would take a course like that and find out just how unuseful the Internet is as a polling tool.
