No One Cares About HBO Polls? Hmm

Do you remember when Larry Spencer was dissing the HucksOnline poll earlier in the week, saying how easy it would be to jerryrig the results? Raising questions re: it's accuracy? Well, I'll be the first to admit that the poll, or any newspaper poll, isn't scientific. Duh! But it is something that's important to the political players (no matter how much they try to dismiss it). John Green, from the United Constitutionalists, er, Conservatives of North Idaho wing of the Republican Party, was urging his followers to vote in the poll. But the Reagan Republicans, who support Keith Hutcheson, got there first. Larry Seaward urged Reagan Republicans to vote in a mass email. Later, Seaward congratulated the Reagan Republicans for changing the results: "Way to go folks. We moved the bar on the straw poll from 65% Ben , 25% Keith at 2PM today to 40% Ben and 50% Keith as of 9:30PM. Keep it up till the cows come home. It was a good day. Great job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" (Wonder if Seaward has a license to carry so many exclamation points?
