Leid Stories Poll: What’s Shaping Your Political Attitudes, Choices?
Seems it’s a poll-driven presidential race. Who’s running, waiting, quitting, leading, lagging, or doesn’t have a prayer—it’s all in the polls. Running the spectrum between unbiased (few in this category) and blatantly partisan (way too many in this category), the intent, more and more, is not merely to ascertain or reflect what people are thinking or doing, but to sway and skew public opinion so as to influence political attitudes and choices.

Leid Stories conducts its own unofficial poll today, asking listeners an open-ended question: “What’s shaping your political attitudes and choices?”
