Worldcon Poll Results

Because I just opened a new poll on The Genre Traveler‘s Yahoo! Groups page to help decide which charity would get the funds raised from The 1st Annual Genre Traveler Photo Contest which launched yesterday, I closed out the poll that’s been up since I started back in 2005. Here are the results:

The question was: “Have you ever attended a Worldcon?”

Would you believe that readers mostly fell into one of two camps? Either they’d never been to one or they’d been to several. I don’t know why, but I find that interesting. Here are the final results:

POLL QUESTION: Have you ever attended a Worldcon?

– Yes, many times. – 45.45%
– Yes, once or twice. – 0.00%
– Yes, once. – 18.18%
– No, but I hope to in the future. – 36.36%
– No, SF isn’t my favorite genre. – 0.00%
– What’s Worldcon? – 0.00%

About the author

As The Genre Traveler, Carma Spence loves to view the world through Genre-Coloured glasses. In other words, she sees the world through a lens of science fiction, fantasy, and horror, where trash cans can be Daleks in disguise and neighborhood forests can harbor faeries and sprites. Magic realism is real! Or at least you can choose to see the world that way to add to the fun and awe of life.
