Why just these three? Why not some of the local town papers? Why are you asking what we read? To what use are the results of this "poll" being put?

Why do you want to know why the question is being asked? Are you reading something you shouldn't be reading? Why do you want to know what is being done with the results? Do you have something to hide?

Default There's Only One Lakes Region Newspaper

Greetings All,

Come on, doesn't everybody read the paper of record for the lakes region? I am, of course, speaking of the Grunt! (that's the Granite State News for all you "flatlanders"!) Jeesh, not even in the choices!

Why do the poll results add up to 115%?

Right now it says Citizen 51%, Concord Monitor 2%, Daily Sun 62%....

The answers are not mutually exclusive, so you can have more than one favorite, that would be my guess, its dividing by the number of people voting, not by the total number of votes.

Default Three newspapers for a reason

I was just curious to know which of those three newspapers people read...Anything from the Salmon Press is a weekly and the ones I'm interested in are the dailies and the ones which actually compete with each other in town. This is just out of curiosity, these results won't be used for anything
