Google Autocomplete tool, that offers to autocomplete your questions with the most popular options, is probably the best way to do polls. A company named Mental Floss decided to take another look at what people were scratching their heads over, regarding each state. They wanted to find out what is the first thing that comes to mind when people are thinking about each state and what is it that they wonder about. They did it by letting Google autocomplete two simple questions:
a. Why is [state] so...
b. What does [state]
To stay on topic, they disregarded questions that referred to the state's sports team instead of the state itself (except for Alabama, because apparently that's all they search for).
