Voters Admit Their Vote Can Be Influenced by Spam

The Internet Patrol - Patrolling the Internet for You

According to voters polled in a recent survey by Mail Frontier, 21% of those surveyed admitted that if they got an anti-Bush or anti-Kerry spam, it would influence their vote in Tuesday’s presidential election.

Now mind you, this wasn’t a survey of 5 people in the break room. This was a formal survey conducted by an outside survey company, of at least 1,000 adults, eighty-nine percent of whom were registered to vote, and 25% of whom were still undecided (that in itself is kind of concerning, given that the election is just next week).


Now, maybe it’s the people with whom Aunty hangs, but Aunty doesn’t know anybody who will even admit to reading spam other than in a professional capacity, let alone admit to being influenced by it – especially in such an important matter.

But, maybe these are the same people who purchase the herbal enhancement products hawked in spam. After all, if you’re going to rely on spam to increase the size of your d[censored], you may as well rely on spam to tell you which d[censored] to send to Washington.

Too bad there isn’t an herbal enhancement product to increase the size of that other organ…you know, the one with which they should be thinking.
