Pogo is the superior term. I feel that corn dog is too lengthy, and should be stricken from language completely.

A pogo is an object you jump on. A corn dog is something you eat. Silly Canadian!

People actually call a corn dog a pogo or am I just misinterpreting the question?

I have honestly in my life never heard it called a corn dog in a serious manner, it's always been Pogo. Whenever I hear someone say corn dog their mocking someone.

They are called "Pogos" in Canada because that is a popular brand name.
 
They are still corn dogs.

I've never heard it called a pogo, serious or not. Actually I've never heard the word pogo without it being followed by the word stick until this thread.

Never heard the word 'Pogo' in this context ever - maybe its part of the American vernacular? Internationally, I'm pretty sure we call them Corn Dogs. On the other hand, if I asked the Giant Bomb international audience what a Chicko Roll was, I'm sure nobody would know. Therefore:
 
American Readers: Pogo is the superior term.
Non-American Readers: Corn Dog is the superior term.
Martians: Screw you and your alien terms!

Just heard news that Pogo is a Canadian term - I should have known. Therefore:
 
Canadian Readers: Pogo is the superior term.
Non-Canadian Readers: Corn Dog is the superior term.
Martians: I still say screw you and your alien terms!

I believe "Pogo" is a particular brand of corn dog.
 
That being said, corn dog is the correct term.

They're the same, just different names. What name do you refer to them by?
