VW says "the people want a bigger rebate for having a bike instead of a car"

Hmmm... http://www.vw.com/vwhype/whatthepeop...51&pollid=3142 just 1300 or so people have taken the survey, though.

While it seems like a good idea to all jump on a survey like this, remember that it only takes one person there to link to this thread, for the organiser to spot an "orchestrated campaign" and declare the results useless.

it's all in fun, lighten up. They had some interesting surveys and you can even create your own.

Has to be devistating news for the auto industry. Funny and telling though. The other 23% must be politicians, auto workers or oil execs.

Is it just me, or were the results useless to begin with?
