politicsI am currently traveling and yesterday being New Year's Day was incredibly slow with story selection, I decided to schedule some polls today to keep this site alive.

In short, SEOs are mixed when it comes to their political parties. 40% are democrats and 40% are republicans and 10% are libertarian. Here is the break down:

SEO Political Affiliation Poll

Honestly, I am a bit surprised. I would have thought SEOs being more tech influenced would be more democratic. But I guess I was wrong.

Please see our poll disclosure policy.
