• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every persons position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

I have been working on some stats for the site to show our userbase and political makeup overall. I will make the link available on the navbar shortly.

Meanwhile, if you are interested, take a gander: Debate Politics Statistics

Is this "all members currently registered"?....

This may be faulty due to the number of members that drop off after a few posts, and also members that haven't posted within the last few months...

If you go to "Quick Links/Members List", you can see a ton of people with 0,1, or 2 posts and haven't said anything in awhile...

You may get a more accurate reading if there is someway you can put a couple of parameters in, like "more than 50 posts" or "Have posted since September"...

Ok, I like this count much better.

It actually feels correct. There are indeed slightly less liberals here than conservatives. But not enough to make it sway one significant direction over the other IMO. The "political leaning" is requested during signup so I think it a better indication than the Usergroup memberships overall. If someone sticks around for 15 posts, more than likely they will continue to participate - unless of course they are posted in a singular night. Then they will eventually drop off the list anyway.

We are indeed fairly well balanced in both users and in the moderation team.
