Pig polling

And who says public opinion doesn’t matter in China?

The Chinese's favorite animal..

The Chinese's favorite animal..

A pig that survived 36 days buried in the rubble of May’s massive Sichuan earthquake has been voted China’s favourite animal, but the attention has made him fat, lazy and bad-tempered, state media said.


Now it has been voted top of an online poll of animals “who moved China” this year, the weekend edition of the China Daily said.

With the election over, I think we need to get Nate Silver tracking the daily favorite animal poll here in the U.S. of A.
