AVweb's Question of the Week ...
*** PREVIOUS RESULTS ***
Last week, AVweb asked who you voted for in the U.S. Presidential elections — and whether your candidate's positions on GA had affected your vote.
George W. Bush won a clear majority of the AVweb vote, but not because of his stands on GA. 52% of you reported casting a Republican ballot, but not because of the party's GA platform. Only 4% of our respondents said they voted for Bush specifically because of GA issues.
More John Kerry supporters were in his camp because of GA — 8% of you reported being swayed by Kerry's positions on aviation. Another 25% cast a vote for Kerry based entirely on non-aviation issues.
1% of AVweb readers voted for Ralph Nader, though we didn't ask if it was because of his opinions on GA.
Another 8% of AVweb readers told us their candidate did not appear on our "exit poll." In fact, we completely forgot to offer a third party option (other than Nader) in our original poll, and a handful of our readers called us to task. As usual, our readers made a good point — so we added an option for "my candidate isn't on the list" halfway through the week. (And that category still managed to score 8% of the vote! AVweb readers are an independent-minded group, indeed.)
3% of eligible American readers didn't vote at all, and another 5% of our readership reported being ineligible to vote in the U.S. elections.
*** THIS WEEK'S QUESTION ***
This week, we want to know how much you trust the FAA in its role as protector and police for the commercial aviation industry.
