The Change the GOP Deserves... The Republican party is facing an absolute shellacking by Democrats this Fall. Suffering from huge congressional special election losses are harbingers of things to come. What has happened to the GOP to catch the ire of the American electorate? Barac.....

Just had to link to this at TMV. People are coming up with suggestions about other things we might find 82% agreement on. Ironically, one of them was George W. Bush's 87% approval rating in November of 2001.

The same percentage of people that say this is a sucky country to live in also say they are doing fine but 'hear' that other are having it rough. This Poll say exactly what the Anti-American media wants it to say. Nothing less and nothing more.

Seriously? They asked "Have you been affected by the economy?!" Ummm . . . yes? I mean, isn't everyone affected by the economy? We're affected by the economy just by living here. "Why yes, I have been affected by the economy. I have made a boatload of money in the last three years! Anyways, I think we are in the 70s again. 70s styles are making a comeback, and the economy is just plain bad. That has more to do with the 82% figure than anything else, I suspect. The problem with the economy is that we're going to have to recover from the loss of confidence in mortgages. NPR did a great report recently on how this whole thing happened from an economic perspective. Go find it, if you can.

I don't know how big the polling sample actually was, but 100% of the people I know, even my liberal friends, think all the hysteria about global warming is a crock. We all also understand that recession is defined as 2 consecutive quarters of economic downturn - which has not happened even one time during the Bush administration. Yes, there are some blips on the economy and yes, gas prices are worrisome. However, unlike the chattering classes, we know (granted I was the one who has pointed this out, repeatedly) that the rise in gas prices is less tied to the price of a barrel of oil (although that is certainly a factor) than it is to the enormous gasoline taxes that are endlessly piled on by short-sighted and greedy politicians at both the state and federal levels. These politicians think WE work for them, instead of it being quite the opposite. Way too much knee jerk nonsense going on and precious little actual thinking!

I once was polled. The poller asked questions like: Pollster: Do you think the country is goin in the right direction? Me: What do you mean by "right" direction? P: You have to answer "yes" or "no". Me: Then "somewhat". P: No, you have to answer "yes" or "no". Do you want to pass that question? Me: Yes P: Have you been affected by the economy? Me: Affected how? P: You have to answer "yes" or "no". Anyway, you get the idea. The questions are loaded to produce a certain result. It reduces the questions to black and white when there is a hellofa lot of grey. I would be interested in reading how the questions on this poll were presented.
