Um, he doesn't want "No Opinion" to go away. He doesn't want it to count in the percentage.

Which in effect is it going away.
Without a neutral vote, the percentages can be skewed.

Given how serious we all take these polls, in an attempt to add a little more balance to the results, I would like the 'no opinion or not interested'-style answers be removed from the percentage calculations.

For example, this shows most people are not interested (obviously, we vote for the chance to tell all this, rather than a chance to win the prize) and the actual 'winner' is lost amongst the low percentage.
