I have being running #ShanesDailyPoll on my @mrshanemcdonald Twitter account for the past week. This is a daily poll with a different question each day and here are a selection of the results. If you want to see all the polls follow @mrshanemcdonald or click here.
Question : Who do you think will win the US Presidential Election?
I posed the question who did you think would win the US Presidential Election? Thankfully Hilary Clinton won the election on my Twitter poll. Considering Hillary Clinton said that “it is worrying that a man who can be baited by a tweet should be running for the presidency”, hopefully she will win! I feel Trump does not have the qualities a world leader should have, and even President Obama has said he is “unfit to be president”.
- Hilary Clinton 65%
- Donald Trump 35%
Question : Do you agree with a Sugar Tax, if the money raised goes back into healthcare ?
I was shocked at how high the results were on this one. I think it might be a good idea considering the effects sugar has on the body in relation to the production of fat. The only thing is that it will need to be very well defined and monitored, i.e. will diet drinks be taxed, considering that some artificial sweeteners have the same insulin producing results as sugar. Also where will the tax go and how will it be diverted to health care.
- Yes 93%
- No 7%
Question : Do you think Ireland should be 100% smoke-free / tobacco free by 2025?
There are government proposals to make Ireland a smoke free country by 2025. Many smokers feel it is a Nanny-state move. Considering how harmful smoking is to health this is a very important area for all to discuss. Also there are issues regarding littering, as many smokers flick their butts into the street once they are finished with their cigarette (I think technically they should be done for littering for this).
- Yes – Smoking is gross 67%
- No, it is the smokers choice 33%
