Given the variety of opinions expressed in the discussions on this blog, I am curious about the general statistical status of the readership, with respect to the issues that we focus on. To satisfy my curiousity, I have created the following series of polls. Vote in as many or as few as you like. The poll is completely anonymous—I have no way of even associating an IP address with poll selections. Please vote only once for each question, and please be honest. Feel free to use the comments to discuss the results or suggest additional/future poll questions.
FYI, "own" is in quotes because as long as you are still carrying a mortgage, it's really the bank that owns your home.
