Grindr users on Scottish independence: an update

After polling Grindr users in Edinburgh whether they believe Scotland should be an independent country, I’ve counted a small number of late respondents and updated the figures. Here is how they now stand, overall:

NO: 116

YES: 110

Undecided: 25

Other opinion: 21

Indifference: 15

Evasion: 41

Bemusement: 14

Amusement: 2

Too horny to answer: 6

General rejection: 4

Did not respond: 301

17 moving out of “Did not respond” – not a big change, but tightens the Yes/No divide. Grindr is now 51% No, 49% Yes.

I referred to this as the “headless torso demographic” previously, but I’ve not examined how the actual headless torso vote breaks down.

Here are the votes of people whose avatars consist solely of body parts with no visible face. This also includes the coveted disembodied foot vote.

NO: 11

YES: 15

Undecided: 3

Other opinion: 1

Indifference: 0

Evasion: 5

Bemusement: 0

Amusement: 0

Too horny to answer: 2

General rejection: 0

Did not respond: 34

Contrary to the results of the overall Grindr populace sampled, anonymous body parts alone vote YES to independence, 58%-42%. I stand with the headless torso demographic.

Here is a sample of the responses received since the last post (and a few old ones that didn’t make the last post, to pad things out).
