Caffeinated Thoughts is launching its first 2016 Presidential Preference Poll.  This poll will be live until September 4, 2014 at midnight.  All are welcome to participate in this poll regardless of party or where you live.  We do ask Iowa voters to identify themselves so we can filter Iowa results.  Also you do have to decide which party you are likely to caucus or go vote in a primary for.  We recognize that the list of candidates will change (likely shrink) and that some prospective candidates are not currently included.  We have included prospective candidates that have been widely discussed as a likely candidates, have been polled on and/or have made visits to Iowa.  If there is a prospective candidate that you prefer you are welcome to add that candidate under “other.”

    1. I just took it in Firefox, what version are you using? The more information I have the better so I can set up a support ticket with Gravity Forms (that’s who I use for this).

    2. It may have been an issue with the poll not working with my wp-minify plugin… I’ve disabled it for the javascript associated with the poll. Could you please try again to see if that made a difference?

  1. The poll doesn’t display on my Chromebook. Can you fix it to work in Chrome and Firefox?

    1. I was able to take it Chrome, that’s the first I’ve heard about it not working in Chrome.
      I’ll have to contact Gravity Forms, the plug-in I’m using for this to figure out what is going on.

      1. Hearing back from GravityForms it may have been an issue with the poll not working with my wp-minify plugin… I’ve disabled it for the javascript associated with the poll. Could you please try again to see if that made a difference?
