Today's Poll: How do you grade Donald Trump's presidency?

posted by Howard B. Owens in polls.

Today marks the return of our Daily Poll. I hope. I stopped doing a poll because sometimes coming with a good poll question could be time-consuming. Now that the first phase of building our new mobile apps is done,* perhaps a daily poll is a task I can take on again.

*I finished the principle coding on the Android version of our app last night. I hope to be able to release it within a week or so. You can download the iOS version of our app by clicking here.

How bout those of us who don't have/use a smart phone? PC users are SOL.

I have no idea what you mean.

Brian, a mobile app is for mobile phones, so what's your point?

I'm using a PC, and I was able to take part in the poll.

I don't have a smart phone, my phone is ancient and I don't use apps even if I could. So, my point is how about someone like me being able to participate on the polling.

The poll isn't even published to the app.

The poll is in this post. If you can see the poll, you can participate in the poll.

Brian, Howard was simply pointing out that since he's through with the bulk of developing the mobile news app, for Apple and now Android, he will be able to afford time to bring back the poll question.

(And then he suggested those interested could get the app he's been working on.)

It has nothing to do with YOUR ability to participate on a mobile device or otherwise in the polling.

OK... I can't see the poll. I wasn't being nasty, just questioning.

The poll is Javascript. Any moderately modern browser should display it without an issue, unless you have Javascript turned off.

I don't know what's going on, I normally use Firefox for my primary browser. The poll does not show. I opened Opera and IE and it shows in both. I checked and JavaScript is working in FF, but refreshing, rebooting, even turning JS off and then back on... nothing works to correct it.
