Daily Kos diary and poll

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com

Daily Kos diary and poll on choices for the 2008 Democratic National Convention.

Update 3: To my friends in Minnesota who have been flooding the poll, you can stop now.

The latest results (1513 votes):

Minneapolis: 61%
Denver: 24%
New Orleans: 11%
New York: 2%

Update 2: Much to my suprise, the diary entry and poll has been linked to by a number of sources, and even today, the article in the Rocky Mountain News was linked to by ABCs The Note, which should bring more people to the poll. Also, there's clearly been a effort by supporters of Minneapolis (nothing wrong with that, I think there was a push for Denver yesterday), and the poll has changed a bit:

Wednesday results (692 votes)

Denver: 50%
New Orleans: 22%
Minneapolis: 21%
(received 85 of the last 112 votes)
New York: 5%

----------------------------

Tuesday results (580 votes):

Denver: 56%
New Orleans: 26%
Minneapolis: 11%
New York: 5%

Update: The Kos diary was linked to by the Rocky Mountain News, and, according to the article, results of the poll were announced to the Denver City Council by Councilwoman Elbra Wedgeworth, Denver Host Committee Co-chair, a reader, commentator, and sometimes subject of this blog.

Seems like this poll will take multiple votes from the same IP address

I think the polls speak for themselves: Democrats want to win elctions. Democrats want America back. Democrats aren't backing down. And for sure, Democrats want DENVER IN 2008!

Hey now - at least be fair, we weren't the only two linking to the poll. Nor are we the only ones in all four cities linking to it. Minneapolis would be a fantastic location for the Convention, and DFL-leaning bloggers here know it and want to help make it happen.

In any case, I appreciate the heck out of the link, and would offer my new site, http://www.mncampaignreport.com for your perusal as well, if you'd like to keep up on MN elections.
