Look at your poll questions, if any, then look at your party filters. Are there any groups that answer at significantly higher rates than the others or do they all generally answer at about the same rate?

I have about equal amounts democrats and republicans, twice that in independents, and half that in Libertarians. This is true fairly consistently, no matter how many votes I have.

Wow, I'd never looked before: 60%democrats.


I need more conservatives. Why do they fear me?

I picked one of my closed polls that couldn't in any way be construed as political or leading by anyone. the DRIL came out 78%, 79%, 79%, 72%. That seems typical for my non-political questions. I don't know the raw numbers, but irl Ls are very few.

In the previous example, the number of votes was 50, 59, 113, 43. What I meant was I don't know the actual breakdown of my followers, and am too lazy to look, but obviously only a small number of them voted on this particular poll.

I would say the comments in my polls are not as conservative leaning as they once were. Many liberals such as Abo comment in my polls just about all the time.

A lot of independents, males, people who make under 50k and not a lot of over 40s. I have an equalish number of Democrats Republicans and Libertarians.

Based upon recent polls of less than 100 votes, I have more Dems and Independents that answer my polls than Republicans and Libertarians. But, I had a recent poll with over 200 votes that had almost equal votes when comparing the groups.

Independents are more than reps & dems combined too.

Independents. My Democrat and Republican rates are roughly equal.

same. my polls lately have around 150 votes. The poll that Tony shared though got over 500 votes and the independents were no longer such an outlier.
