Do you think that political hubs get voted down by political opponents
One of my hubs is on Rick Santorum. All that it does is state his positions. It is not really for or against him. It has been ranked as one of my top hubs with a score over 90 at times. Now it is one of my lowest scoring hubs with a 70. Does Hubpages allow political opponents to influence a hubscore this severely by voting it down? Or, is this just natural hubpages fluctuation?
The vote down button has little to do with anything regarding hub score.
Checlk out this forum thread about the (non) usefulness and misunderstanding of the Vote Down button:
Unfortunately, people do tend to vote down answers here and on hubs by whether they agree with it or not - rather then seeing it as informative. I see the same thing with hubs on any thing to do with religion. I don't know how it affects our scores. I'm going to try the link FloraBR below listed and see.
Political issues can be hot one week and people are off to the next big thing next week, so that could cause the big drop. People due tend to vote down something there against so it's probably a combination of the two.
I'm sure some people do but I think that it would be pretty petty. This Country was built on agreeing to disagree and civil discourse but those traits appear to be lost in today's political scene.
If someone puts together something that has differing political points than I do it doesn't bother me. It will bother me if it is in poor taste or just posted to be a rant and doesn't exhibit any points whatsoever.
If people don't agree with someone's point of view just move on or change the TV station.

Or do you only vote a hub down because it was poorly written, or contains erroneous information?What is your criteria?

I need help with this please. If your hub is tagged as containing duplicate content, does it mean that HubPages will not promote it as actively as they would do for other hubs with original content?Will it affect the...

Friday November 20, 2009.Your results are in, and much to talk about. The number of hubbers varies a bit question to question so I am going to add this in, however I don’t feel as though it throws off the end results...

In another forum, someone posted that they dumped their significant other because he/she voted for George Bush. I was kind of shocked by that. It seemed incredibly shallow to me, but I don't know either of...
