Be the rat

Why would you help New York University and participate in the survey below? Because NYU asked me to ask you, and at this point you and I are pretty close, and I provide you with all this entertainment and you, frankly, owe me. How that translates to owing NYU is so obvious I’m not going to explain it.
Anyway, a research team from the Psychology Department at New York University, headed by Professor Yaacov Trope and supported by the National Science Foundation, is investigating the cognitive causes of voting behavior, political preferences, and candidate evaluations throughout the course of the 2008 U.S. Presidential election. This stage of the study focuses on the information people use to inform evaluations during the last few weeks before the election. They seek respondents of all political leanings from all over the country (and from the rest of the world) to complete a 15-minute questionnaire, the responses to which will be completely anonymous. And no one is more anonymous than Likelihood of Success readers, nor — by virtue of their blog reading habits — can they credibly claim to have much else to do.
Here’s the link to the survey. You can thank me later.
