Will you vote for the same politicians in 2013? Answers revealed

On May 22nd Lebanon Aggregator posed a question on their Facebook page asking if people will vote for the same politicians in the coming elections in 2013:


The responses were as follows:


There were 2,306 votes in total of which 41.8% said they will not vote at all. The other two major answers were "No" which amounted to 12% and if we combined "I'm under 18 so I can't vote" + "Might not be allowed yet :P", they would amount for 8.6%.

The answers highlighted with yellow were suggested by Lebanon Aggregator, while the rest were suggested by the users who took action on that poll. There were more answers but they had less votes, for more details you can check the question on Facebook yourself.

Only 2.4% said they will vote for the same people, and 0.3% said they will vote but for new candidates. It is also noticeable that they were people who simply didn't give a flying f*ck, although the question reached over 190,000 unique people, so maybe more people don't give a f*ck? And finally there were those who were offended: "Chou 5askon" and "kelo 5ara".

Conclusion

The whole point of this poll was not to see if people will vote for the same politicians, honestly speaking, when I put up this question, it was more of a rhetorical question and had an awareness purpose.

I said it there and I'll say it here:

If you don't vote you have no right to bitch about the results.
