Thank you, Blaze readers. Thank you more than 2 million times.
Your participation in the one-day, flash poll of our readers provided some amazing information. We will share some of the highlights here, but also encourage you to wade through some of the "results" of the poll on the page itself. They are quite revealing.
As we start mining the data from this survey a few fast facts pop to the surface.
TYPICAL BLAZE READERS ARE:
- MALES (72%), MARRIED (78%), WITH CHILDREN (77%), AND OVER 35 YEARS OF AGE
- REGISTERED VOTERS... WHO ALSO VOTED IN THE LAST ELECTION AND PLAN ON VOTING IN 2012
- GUN OWNERS... WHO WOULD ALSO SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE SECOND AMENDMENT
- EDUCATED AND YOU READ - 80% ATTENDED COLLEGE AND 60% READ MORE THAN 12 BOOKS A YEAR
- BELIEVERS IN CAPITALISM AS THE ONLY SYSTEM OF GOVT FOR FREEDOM-LOVING PEOPLE
- HOPING WE DRILL FOR OIL AND GAS HERE AT HOME
- BELIEVERS (90% BELIEVE IN GOD, 80% ATTEND CHURCH REGULARLY)
- READY FOR A FEMALE PRESIDENT (85% SUPPORT)
- PET OWNERS, ALTHOUGH DOGS ARE PREFERRED OVER CATS
- ABOLISH THE EPA, DEPT OF EDUCATION, AND THE FEDERAL RESERVE
- SOCIAL MEDIA - YOU PREFER FACEBOOK (32% USE IT) TO TWITTER (ONLY 8% OF YOU ARE TWEETING)
- JUST ABOUT 1/3rd OF YOU CLAIM TO BE IN THE TEA PARTY, BUT MOST OF YOU (60+%) HAVE A FAVORABLE VIEW OF THE TEA PARTY
- VERY FEW OF YOU ARE VEGETARIANS OR VEGANS (2% - Sorry Stu)
Again, we appreciate your participation in this poll as it helps us know more about you and what you interested in reading. (It helps the Sales people too.)
