Opinion poll

I was watching preview of Ind-Pak title clash on Headlines Today this morning. Like most news channels, HT too had a gawky interface with stock prices and headlines scrolling across the screen. I was attracted by a rectangular box on the left of the screen that carried results of an opinion poll.

The question was: "Who will win today?"; Options: A) India and B) Pakistan. The results till then was 87%-13%, that would delight any Indian. Even then, the 13% of votes did surprise me. Who would have voted for Pak? Whoever it may be, I promise there would be no cricketing reasons.

But the question is still open. I put the question to myself. "Why would you vote for Pak in this poll?". I'd say, "I am better of being in the group of lesser strength, if randomly picked one from one of the groups will win a gift." :-)

As I brainstormed, I found other things that made some real sense to me: There are lot of people around who believe "if they vote for India, then we will lose". Hmmmm, true!! And, What if the channel forges the results to attract more SMS votes from the viewers? You never know. :P

b)who go against the flow just for the heck of it
c)who pressed the wrong key on their mobiles
etc etc

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video
to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw away your
intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be
giving us something informative to read?
