An Idea For Preventing Al-Qaeda Election Attacks

I just had a brilliant idea for preventing al-Qaeda from bombing countries prior to elections to try to duplicate their success in Spain: Rig the pre-election polls!

This is simple: if you are called as part of a poll and asked who you are going to vote for, simply say you will vote for [whoever the cowardly, appeasement-oriented candidate is]. If enough of us do this, the pre-election polls will skew toward the candidate al-Qaeda wants. Al-Qaeda will then be fooled into thinking that we are firmly in their pocket and need no terrorist attacks to influence our vote. After that, we go to the real polls and vote for whoever we really want.

I don't know how long it would work before they figure out what's happening. But they'd have no way to tell the difference between actual polling results and those that are skewed by deliberate mass deception. And it would have the added bonus of poking the liberal media with a stick, at least here in the U.S.A.
