You realize that is a poll of 1000 or so people. That doesn't represent everyone and honestly if i never met the guy I would not trust them no matter what colour or race they are. Also who the hell cares about religion god it is the main cause for most wars would be better if no religion existed but that is my opinion.
HF has a board for it, the political board. They have some good stuff there.
I could very well be wrong, but I can see the appeal in discussing such things with your more immediate (for lack of a better term) 'peer group' - i.e. for a Leafs fan this board is a familiar and friendly community with which you'd enjoy discussing or debating such things, and the political board is less so. I don't know, I enjoy reading specifically Leafs' fans takes on OT things; maybe that's silly.
