Also, no rational person is going to assume everybody is going to pick 100%. I don't understand the reasoning behind that at all, dree12.

100% does not mean 100%. It means >99.5%, which is your argument applied in a stronger fashion.

I've seen/done more of these polls over time, and usually the correct answer is indeed around the 25% range. I wanted to make it a bit more interesting, that's why I didn't make the ranges the same size; the high percentage is obviously much higher.
I find it funny there's always people choosing 100%. It's not like everyone is going to do that…

V cvpxrq 100% onfrq ba na nffhzcgvba gung V nz engvbany naq rirelbar ryfr vf engvbany. Gurersber, fvapr jr ner nyy engvbany, jr jbhyq boivbhfyl nyy cvpx 100%.

(notice: the previous response is not written in German. It is rotated 13 letters of the alphabet to spoiler the discussion.)

Is there an APP for this? For a second, I thought I was reading a new Wordpress theme.

BTW, I voted 0-1% believing it was a trick poll and most would have chosen that option as well. To date, that would make me a ten percenter. Not bad for my first self-referential poll.

I declare the 2-20% people right.
Of course, that still might change.
