Christians in Beirut and its suburbs expressed little optimism Wednesday that a proposed presidential poll would help elect a new head of state or fix the deep political fissures in the country.The poll would not be binding, but would aim to show which Christian candidate had the most support in the country.Proposed initially by FPM chief Michel Aoun, the presidential poll was also endorsed by Lebanese Forces leader and presidential candidate Samir Geagea.The poll, if conducted, is expected to show how much public support the two leading candidates, Geagea and Aoun, have.Samir, in Sin al-Fil, was more interested in how the candidates would react after the poll was conducted.
