Plenty of younger people can survive through Covid-19 with only mild symptoms.

It's likely President Trump's positive tests to be true unless all the top medical staffs have lied.

None of us can be sure. That notion certainly rackets about, and has some attraction.
Assuming he does have it, I hear a consensus amongst my radical-leftist-socialist-anarchist-antifa friends that he should survive long enough to be indicted and tried. Keep him away from the bleach and Lysol.

Which ones? There are ones that were but you may not know that they were.

We think he is obliquely referring to the John McCain prisoner situation.

It is possible in theory to circumvent this. If the basic options are A, B, and C, you could add options "A and B," "A and C," "B and C," and "A, B, and C."

Of course, an all-inclusive list of combinations increases a list of n basic options to a list of 2n - 1 options, assuming "none of the above" is covered by not casting a vote.
You need to select the "multiple choice" option (see attachment) while creating the poll. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem possible to edit the poll and change it to a multiple choice option, so you need to specify from the get go.

It's Covid-19, in the usages I've seen, including by CDC and WHO. And it's hydroxychloroquine.
Creating a poll of this sort seems in poor taste.

In general, forum polls reference info is here: https://www.mersenneforum.org/showpo...22&postcount=2
Multiple choice is possible, if it's set when the poll is created. Or a moderator edits it later.

Nope, we can't change the poll type, only add/delete/change options or (for few of us) influence the number of votes. But multiple/single options we can't change after poll was created.
Edit: for the record, we (royal we now) didn't touch the exiting options and votes. Only added the option, because we could. And voted it, in spite of the fact we don't give a dime either. We know we may be wrong...

I'm not sure whether this refers to lowercase/caps or "-19." Either way, it's the most egregious instance of nitpicking I've ever seen on this Forum.

This is also nitpicking. However, it afforded me an opportunity to see whether I can edit a poll. I can, and I did. I crossed out the original mipsplepping and copy-pasted the correctly-spelled word from a news article. Happy?

Please explain your opinion? It isn't a poll about whether he should survive or die or how he should die. Most of the options in the poll reflect either Trump's beliefs of the beliefs of the Evangelicals who love him. If anything you should be upset that the poll pokes at the hypocrisy of Evangelicals (and their support of Trump, who is not religious in the opinion of most Americans) as much as the hypocrisy of Trump (who calls Evangelical leaders 'hustlers' while canvassing for their vote).
