Does Democrat Political Control Mean Unchecked Power?

With the Georgia Senate race run-offs now officially decided with Democrats, Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff, winning, the Democrats potentially have unchecked political power in the United States Government. They have the President and Vice-President, the majority in the House of Representatives, and a tie in the Senate with the Vice-President as tie-breaker. But do they really have unchecked power? In a word, “no”. But why would I say “no” when US politics is as divided as it is today?

Do Geeks and Nerds Prefer Obama or Romney? Poll

There are all kinds of polls for the US election, covering all kinds of demographics. However, I’ve yet to see one for geeks and nerds, as well as dorks and dweebs. Before you chastise me, though, yes, I know the difference between the four.

However, for this post’s sake, and relate to the rest of the public, let’s just all be happy together as geeks and nerds, shall we?

Geeks and nerds may not be taken seriously in life, but as a demographic, they make up about 16% or 1 in 6 of the American population! That’s bigger than a LOT of demographics surveyed out there! Geeks and nerds are definitely a SERIOUS demographic!

So without a poll for this demographic, let me ask all the self-labeled geeks and nerds (and dweebs) out there, who do you prefer for President of the United States? Please vote in the poll below, and share with your geek and nerd friends!

Canada and US Election Votes Facebook Friends Tagging Survey

If an election were called today in Canada or the United States, federally or province/state, or even a Senate Race, would you know for whom all your friends would vote?

Get them to tell you on Facebook with these Facebook picture tagging memes that serve as a survey. It uses the same picture tagging features as your photos, and those memes going around with superheroes and other characters. However, here, your friends tag the party of their choice to indicate for whom they would vote! I bet you might be surprised at some people’s choices!

You won’t have to tell many friends to tag their choice. After a few initial ones tag their choice, notifications will be sent out in Facebook and others will see them. Their curiosity, if they care at all, will do the rest.

Facebook tagging survey is a concept I came up with because there aren’t any Facebook survey tools, at least not applications where everyone would have to sign up for the application to use it. I know those applications are free, but not everyone is keen to giving away their personal info and have all kinds of applications as part of their Facebook navigation.

Please note that these surveys are public to a person’s friends, at least, pending their privacy setting. So don’t declare anything you wouldn’t want the world to know!

I have created four elections Facebook tagging surveys below. Some are less timely than others, like the US elections one which won’t see use for almost 4 years from this posting date, though you can still survey your friends right now if you never got to last election. Others are just waiting to happen, like the Canadian federal election.

Here’s how to get this Facebook survey meme to survey your friends’ political allegiance:

  • Click on the picture to get it at full size.
  • Right click on that picture and save to your computer.
  • Upload it to your Facebook profile.
  • Tag yourself and ask a few friends to tag their choices.
