An unofficial government performance poll, created by Ministreu del Estericour C. Carlüs Xheraltescù, has yielded some unusual results. Twenty respondents gave widely varying answers on the question of "Who do you rate as the best performing government ministers?", showing that there is no clear consensus as to which minister is doing the best job.
The response size is significant - twenty citizens represent a sizeable portion of the nation, even if limited to only those most active on Wittenberg. But even so, a changed vote could bring a two-point swing between two ministers, so the results perhaps only illustrate broad trends of public favor.
The poll's creator, M. Xheraltescù, tied with Avocat Xheneral Txec dal Nordselva for first place, followed shortly by Ministreu dal Finançù Owen Edwards. As observers noted, it was odd that these three figures should be in the lead together; M. Xheraltescù and M. Edwards are long-serving and prominent members of the Government, whereas M. Nordselva is a very recent appointee.
Ministreu à Sanavarh da Talossa àls Ultra-Fiovaes Folas Sevastáin Pinátsch and Distain Dame Miestrâ Schivâ, UrN, came next in the middle range of the poll, with Seneschal Luc da Schir and Ministreu dels Afaes Utphätseschti M.T. Patritz da Biondeu sitting as the lowest-ranked Government officials. The Seneschal had received zero votes halfway through the poll, exciting some comment and prompting the head of the Government to say, "Well, usually very few people remember the manager of a winning team, as is the case here, while the top players are rightfully praised. Personally, I'm fine with it." Shortly after his statement, however, he received a vote, boosting him from last place.
"Just goes to show how unrepresentative this poll is, I suppose!" said M. Xheraltescù.
