A Second Holiday Season for Some of Our Polls

One of the coolest features about votetrends is the ability to see how users' opinions change over time. Some of our online polls have been open to voting for over a year, so we're having fun seeing which polls have big shifts. With the holiday season approaching, it's the perfect time to re-vote on our Thanksgiving and Christmas polls. And, of course, it's a great time to for our users to add some more!

Do you think you'll go to the mall the day after Thanksgiving (aka Black Friday)?

What Might the Future Hold for Elizabeth Warren?

From our headquarters in Boston, we at votetrends are accustomed to hearing news about Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. But lately, Warren's no-holds-barred critique of "too big to fail" banks and the de-regulation of the financial industry are making a splash across the country. She is one of a handful of politicians with YouTube hits well into the millions. Across the web, pundits hotly debate whether or not she will run for Democratic Presidential nominee in 2016, especially because Hilary Clinton still seems to be the party's frontrunner.

Now that so many people across the US know about Senator Warren and her ideological stances, we think it's an ideal time to post a few polls about her and the upcoming 2016 Presidential race. We are very curious to see how our users' opinions about Warren shift over time, as 2016 is just over the horizon...

Do you want Elizabeth Warren to run for President in 2016?

Who do you think is more likely to be the Democratic nominee for President in 2016: Hilary Clinton or Elizabeth Warren?
