Anyone who has any rational thought will tell you splitting your support is a bad thing. I split the support of my side because I wanted the data and not to win.
You are so blinded by your hate that your refuse to acknowledge that.
This is something that I knew in 7th grade when we wee figuring out what to discuss in class and I made sure that it was a vote between 3 topics because my topic would lose in a 2 way vote and win in a 3 way vote because the people that would vote against my topic would be split.
If you want good data, you should probably make the responses symmetrical. If you're trying to tell me you slanted the poll against conservatives, that won't get you reliable data.
And swampy, your 7th grade anecdote doesn't apply here, as they didn't combine the votes against you in the end.
