  1. Unscientific poll? That is the understatement of the year! More like FOUL play, outside interference, maybe even foreign hacking???…..I have been keeping up with the voting processes here in Florida, and our nation….. Fake news! Was the voting tally machine inspected, and certified? Were there poll watchers watching? I know, when I first attempted to vote on the online poll, without even clicking onto a candidate’s name, another candidate name’s bubble circle automatically filled in, and was ready to go, but I exited, and came back in and clicked on a different candidate’s name, and clicked on the vote bar. As a resident and citizen of this great City of Apopka, Florida, I demand a re-count! Your bean counter machine, Reggie, has lost its marbles, or in one case, its beans!… in, MALFUNCTION!

  2. We certainly don’t want certain candidates getting the ” bobble- headed, big head” thinking they got the election all wrapped up, based on an “unscientific poll”, now do we? Or other candidates, that didn’t come out on top, thinking that it is all over for them, based on an “unscientific poll”….now do we? It is not over until the fat lady sings, and she has not sung yet……
