the spike in my polls


Senior Member
This comes from the show Ugly Betty, season 4, episode 1-2.

Betty is cooking some kind of muffins for her co-workers hoping it helps her to break the ice. Hilda's boyfriend Archy who is some kind of politician is supporting her on this.

Archy: "Food can be very effective. The more I have at my compagn rallies the higher the spike in my polls."
Could you tell me what he means by "spike" here?

    Here is a graph with three very definite spikes in it. So basically when he has good food at his rallies, his approval rating goes up enormously:)
