You well might wonder why I'm even bringing this up. For starters, I like to ask questions about just about anything. Also, some degree of precision in matters like these seems mildly important. Finally, I think Dave uses the fan poll as his sort of diving rod in order to judge the mood of Bedgers, so I'm sure he would like to know just what our mood pertains to. So, here are a few options for what the fan confidence poll is actually intended to measure:
