Here are the results of our New Years Resolutions Poll. Politics Plus Polls are not scientific, because those who respond are not balanced according to demographic categories. Therefore, we do not accurately reflect the makeup of the US population. Nevertheless, our polls are often both accurate and indicative of the nation’s view.

Never have made resolutions until one year a friend made me somehow. That was ringing in 2010. I spent most of that year in the hospital. So I made a resolution to make no resolutions ever again.

I don’t make New Year’s resolutions. I wait until Lent, then give up Polo.

I want to become more active but it will also depend on my back and being able to walk more (I fell Catmas Day doing in my tailbone – that’s what happens when you go to sit on your mother’s walker and miss!
but the desire is there
I also ticked ‘other’ because I am in the midst of making big changes which I hope will help me generally.

I said no resolutions but I forgot that I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change – I am changing the things I cannot accept.

I quit making resolutions a long time ago because I never kept them.

No resolutions, just keep on track with my no smoking…

I learned a long time ago I don’t need the year to change in order to resolve to do something for my own good and, being of a rebellious nature anyway, I tend to not go along with how those who run this country would prefer we act and think and do. So, in short, I never make New Year’s resolutions

Since 2014 is an election year, and a very important one as all those 2010 tea party governors are up for election again this year and I believe their constituents have now seen enough of them to know who they truly are inside, my only resolution is to do everything I can to support progressive candidates and begin the process of taking back our government from those who would, in essence, destroy it in favor of no government and even greater gaps in wealth distribution than we have now.

As much as I would like to make a resolution, I can’t because it’s hard to improve on perfection.

I was going to resolve to be more active to improve my health but it’s going to be impossible right now. I wanted to start walking to get up to 3 miles a day again but another surgery on my leg is scheduled for Thursday AM. Pray for me.

I forgot, then when reminded, I couldn’t think of any that I might actually keep.
I voted ‘To make no resolutions’. I figure that my level of commitment to something is so pathetic that it takes New Years to get me to resolve to actually act, it will never make it to February.
Holiday fun time is over, and while the new poll (top of right column) does contain some humor, it’s a serious one this time. Don’t forget to vote please!!
