Cell Phone Users Choose Obama

If you're into mobile telephone technology, you're voting for Barack (at least according to Zogby)...

UTICA, New York - Americans who use their mobile phones to surf the Internet are much more likely to support Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama over Republican candidate John McCain, according to an unscientific survey of likely voters conducted jointly by Zogby International and Jump Tap.

The survey was conducted from October 7-24 via an ad banner campaign running across the Jump Tap premium mobile ad network of popular mobile websites including Fox Mobile Entertainment and major newspapers within the Verve Wireless network such as the Miami Herald and Sacramento Bee. The poll will continue tapping the pulse of mobile voters - pre and post election. Over 68% of viewers who responded to the "vote" ad banners completed the 10 question survey.

Of 3,462 likely voters who took the survey, 71% supported Democratic Presidential nominee Obama, 25% chose Republican John McCain and the other 4% were unsure or would choose another candidate.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
