This poll was clearly designed to canvas United States cities, even if it wasn't explicitly stated. Is that narrow-minded? I don't think so. If I happened upon a poll on a Russian tech site that mentioned Omsk and Moscow and St. Petersburg, I'd assume it was a national poll. And then I'd move on.

Perhaps it's narrow-minded to assume that a poll on a U.S.-based tech site should by default be global in scope?

Audience defines the scope of the site, not the country where it is hosted.

a U.S.-based tech site

This is a US based tech site? News to me. I thought it was a global site.

"US-based" means located in the US.
