Lumbar Puncture: ladyfortuna: Secondly, you're polling a demographic that likes to shout racial slurs during matches, teabag opponents, and generally abuse the English language. Enjoy your results

Those people don't make up the entire Live demographic, and judging from the high pitched voices I'd say many of those same people aren't old enough to vote. You are also assuming that same crowd took a break from their teabagging, nd had the attention span, to watch the VP debate on Xbox Live.


There is actually a good portion of people on live that do pay attention to Politics, problem is that they don't talk about it much.
I've got at least six people on my Friends list who were watching the debates and gave genuinely intelligent opinions.

This just in: old people don't use Xboxes as social media devices.

"Expect a regular, meaningful stream of results from the Xbox Live/YouGov poll between now and Election Day. Harnessing both the large sample sizes and repeated respondents, we are busy learning about our repeated users from our unbalanced panel that have switched over the last few weeks. We are also exploring the value of randomly generated subsamples of daily respondents. While, we embrace the oversampling we have hard to get demographics, like 18-29 males and young families."

First of all, who let that garbage go live?

Secondly, you're polling a demographic that likes to shout racial slurs during matches, teabag opponents, and generally abuse the English language. Enjoy your results.

HeartBurnKid: ///if you ever want to feel pessimistic about the future of our world, try playing Call of Honor Field on XBox Live and listen to what the kids are saying


Personally, I'm glad those games exist. It keeps those littler gutter-sh*ts off of the other, better games. I fondly remember the days of Rainbow Six Vegas when those kids would come into a lobby, open their mouths, and get insta-booted. Those were wonderful times.

Stay away from the FPS's, heck, make that stay away from Halo and CoD, and you'll generally find much less of that. Also, the 'party' feature of Live has also made it that idiots have less of an audience to spout too since most people aren't in the general chat anyway. Other than the occasional pothead playing Catan for the first time, the card and board games are downright civilized.

No matter how much the GOP tries to demonize Joe Biden he remains among the best Vice Presidents in living memory.

What's not to like?

The real Joe Biden seems like an ok guy who isn't perfect but is intelligent while not seeming like a total prick. The kind of guy you'd go and have a beer with an discuss politics or some other relatively serious topic.

Parody JoeyB seems like an ok guy who isn't perfect but likes to have fun. The kind of guy you'd go have a beer with at a sports bar and discuss who's gonna win the Super Bowl.

Biden'shiat the PR jackpot in the last four years.

We'll see how many of them actually get out of the house and vote, though. Halo 4 is being released on election day.
