Weekly Poll Results

In responding to the latest poll, which began last Wednesday and ended today, and in which readers were asked which of six countries they would choose as their preferred haven if forced into exile, Rittenhouse readers revealed themselves to be beachcombers at heart.

Readers’ top two choices were Panama, which garnered 81 votes, or 37 percent of the total, and Madagascar, chosen by 70 readers (and by me), representing 32 percent of the vote.

Lagging in the poll were landlocked Paraguay, Moldova, and Uzbekistan, a trio joined, despite its Adriatic beaches, by Albania.

Results of the poll are summarized below:

1. Panama, 81 votes, or 37%
2. Madagascar, 70 votes, 32%
3. Paraguay, 40 votes,18%
4. Moldova, 15 votes, 7%
5. Albania, 11 votes, 5%
6. Uzbekistan, 3 votes, 1%

A new poll will be posted tomorrow.
