For our latest Adweek.com poll, we decided to perform an experiment. The idea was, in the wake of the layoffs at BBDO and Ogilvy, to ask which agency is the most likely to have the next round of significant layoffs. The likely big network agencies filled the list. After doing so well in the “most overrated” vote, Crispin Porter + Bogusky was added to this new poll for intrigue, even though it does not seem like a very likely candidate for canning people. But sure enough, the Crispin-hating hordes are turning out as usual, voting early and often to keep the agency near the lead. What gives? I wonder what the overlap is of anti-Crispinites and Ron Paul supporters.
