MOT POLL Information Page

The MOT Poll is like a bag of potato chips to be snacked on during periods of leisure or concern. Actual voting on poll Ballots can be equated to dipping chips into a political sauce. This poll is of and for people in the United States of any gender, age, affiliation, or belief who desire to be polled on their evaluation of government and media actions relative to theft. The poll can also be used for awareness, education, and discussion of things that are important to everyone.

MOT philosophy behind human motivation for actions: During the first years of sustenance and nurturing after birth, when a human child gets everything for physical and emotional survival for nothing 'given' in return except esteem,  pride, and hope for parents, a time eventually arrives when they (we) are required to make efforts for our own welfare and happiness. For many, there is a reluctance during this transition to have to work at things they (we) don't like to do, and a propensity can evolve to steal in lieu of working much, or not working at all, to attain what is desired. For this reason, bounds are normally placed on children by their parents and cultures to halt theft for the purpose of both physical and emotional survival in their part of the world. Free societies seem to fade into darkness when its people do not weigh, or are not allowed to weigh, profit versus theft in the lives and actions of their leaders, their representatives, and themselves.

MOT Poll basis for Ballot conclusions on theft: It is considered here that profit in goods and services, including emotional profit, is the driving motivation behind politics, work, money, philosophy, advancement, family, religion, power, beauty, competition and creativity. Often this profit is attained through an unfair margin of advantage called theft. In both trade and sports, an un-level playing field provides an unfair advantage to the thief. The human condition can disguise these advantages through a variety of descriptive and accepted margins of interpretation.

Credibility: The ballot voter can see instantly his/her vote be counted, and the average weight changed up or down when pressing the ‘Send’ button. 

Ballot Voting Risk: This is determined by the user, who may be concerned that someone is physically looking over their shoulder when accessing motpoll.com on their computing device.

MOT Poll database: The MOT Poll database is an educational and entertainment methodology. It entertains the idea that universal judgments about theft can reveal more on issues that affect people's lives in the US. 

Voting times and locations: Votes are limited to residents within the United States. Votes are further limited to one per day per US WiFi address, as in, 'one vote per 24 hours, per any single Starbucks Coffee Shop, home, office, waiting area, airplane WiFi, or store location'.

Ballot Facts: Ballot reported 'Facts' and photographs are obtained from historical records, ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, NewsMax, and major US newspapers and radio stations, all in the public domain. 'Facts' in the MOT Poll are considered 'Facts' when reported the same in both the 'left-liberal' and 'right-conservative' public news sources, without 'journalistic' opinions. 'Opinions' are included for separate agreement and data source by the user within the 'Analysis'-'Conclusion' portion of each MOT Poll Ballot. For those Ballots that refer simply to the "President", please note the "Ballot Creation Date" under each Ballot to determine who the President was at the time. On many Ballots, the reader can click on words that are blue in color for further references on the subject. Clicking on the 'back', pointing left arrow, will then get one back to the Ballot.

Voter Agreement: Ballot voters can designate whether they agree or not with the facts and/or conclusions presented, and still vote a weight of theft. This allows the US reader the personal range between agreeing with nothing presented and still voting 'insanity', and agreeing with everything and voting 'zero theft'/ 'no problem'. A voter can also not agree or not disagree (no opinion) with Facts and/or Conclusions, and still vote a weight of theft. These percentages are provided by Ballot listed in Report 1 in the 'Statistics' section. Voters are unrestricted by age, gender, or affiliations. Anyone in the US who is aware enough to read and operate a computer keyboard can be an anonymous MOT pollster/voter.

Ballot Researchers, Analyzers, and Writers:

MOT Ballot researchers, analyzers, and writers (limited to nine) currently possess credentials that include:

* Bachelor Degrees in Engineering and Science.

* Decades of experience in Government, industry, the military, and farming.

* US Citizenship

* A total of four US military awards for heroism, and one foreign award for gallantry.

Ballot Weights: Ballot weights are instantly averaged to four decimal places in order to show the immediate and unaltered inputs for each reader vote at the instant of voting. (Watch the average weight change up or down in numerical value when you click on the 'send' button, which thereby transmits your judgment on that date and time to the rest of the world.) A single Ballot vote of 15 is an 'insane' designation of theft weight. Ballot thefts voted higher than an average weight of 10.000 is considered insane at the time of review (Also see 'Statistics', Reports 1 and 2.).

Today in the US, many Congresspersons fall within the confines of this definition.

Other 1: When was the last time you were polled? Who are the Poll people who ask the questions? Do you know any one of them? Do you ever wish a poll would call you to put in your two cents? Do Gallup, Rasmussen, Quinnipiac, Washington Post, Real Clear Politics, etc. polls ask questions other than for predicting or perhaps swaying elections, or for valuing candidate credibility and personalities? What about a poll that asks what you might think about specific actions that might harmfully affect you and your society now, and into the future? The MOT Poll places actions, including past concerns, that apply to the present, up front for current judgement… and this allows all persons, by polling themselves on many questions based on known facts, to then better make their determinations on candidates and officials who represent us.

Other 2: The MOT Poll is different from other polls in that US residents herein poll themselves for entertainment and information. It can give them pause to both evaluate their views given major facts in existence, and also to see what others think about things of national importance. Credibility of facts presented are determined by the reader based on information from all sources, including libraries and dictionaries, that are in the public domain. Voting anonymity is determined by the voter.

Other 3: For an overall and more comprehensive view of theft trends in the US, it is best to read all MOT Ballots as chapters in a book. Also, many Ballots of even years-past creation dates remain viably current for consideration upon which to make a judgment.  

Other 4: The MOT Poll does not currently choose advertisers. Google does.
