Things have been a little slanted lately on the Bainbridge Review website.

No, not in the news coverage, of course, but in our ever-changing poll.

It turns out that answers to our online poll definitely seem to be a bit lopsided as of late.

Need proof? Here’s a quick recap of recent poll questions.

Will the Seahawks win the Super Bowl?

Yes 79.4 percent, No 20.6 percent

Will you watch President Obama give the State of the Union speech?

Yes 62.5, No 37.5

Should Congress increase the minimum wage?

Yes 60.4, No 39.6

Filled-to-capacity ferries, massive crowds on Seattle streets in freezing weather, five hours of late ferries, an epic traffic jam on Highway 305 afterwards; was the Seattle Seahawks’ Super Bowl victory parade worth the hassles?

Yes 75, No 25

Do you support the Bainbridge Island School District’s two levy measures on the Feb. 11 Special Election ballot?

Yes 73.9, No 26.1

Do you agree with Gov. Jay Inslee’s move to implement a moratorium on all executions as long as he serves as governor?

Yes 75, No 25

Will you buy a gift for a loved one for Valentine’s Day?

Yes 35, No 65

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has proposed reducing the size of the Army, which is likely to be included in the 2015 budget submitted to Congress next week by Pres. Obama. Is shrinking the Army from 522,000 soldiers to 440,000-450,000 soldiers a good idea?

Yes 82, No 17

If the results of the last election are any indication, our online poll numbers greatly mimics the mood of most islanders.
