    Default political influence question

    I think you need to clarify your poll i.e.
    1. Did you have your congreesman/woman support your grant application? yes (), no ()
    If yes did you recieve grant? yes(), no().
    If not did you recieve grant? yes(), no().

    The way the poll is it doesnot differentiate if you had political support and if you got the grant. When I answered the poll the politcal support and the sucessful both were reported as 11.1%, but we had the political support and did not receive grant. But result makes it look like its what made the difference. Also maybe a choice for the few still waiting to hear. Great idea for a question otherwise.

    I would have liked to make a poll with about 7 questions but being limited to 5 response's I thought we would try the four posted and see what happened. With only approx 10% responding we may need to try again. Thanks for the input.

    We were awarded and DID NOT use political support.

    We were NOT awarded and DID use political support.

    We were NOT awarded and DID NOT use political support.

    DITTO !

    Political support ?? I still haven't heard or seen anything from our Congressional Reps... yet other Dept's posted that they received calls before the awards were announced

    Just a clear description of our turn-out gear replacement project that started 3 years ago and will take another 3-4 years to complete based upon our current financial situation, and that Fact that we can't afford pagers / portable radio replacements or repairs. (Gotta love low band !!
