Fascinating Poll Results That Will Be Ignored

…Because apparently anything that more than 60 or 70% of Americans agree on must be some kind of wacky fringe leftist position that can be safely disregarded, like the public option and withdrawing from Iraq and not extending tax cuts for the rich.

  • 80 to 90+% of not just Americans, but of gun owners, want to make it harder for criminals, terrorists, and dangerously disturbed people to buy guns, favoring improvements in federal databases and background checks for all gun sales.  Why does the NRA hate gun owners?
  • The socialism that they rail against and see everywhere is more popular than the teabaggers are.  So if you’re looking for someone to identify as wacky and fringe, maybe it should be the guy holding the picture of the President Of The United States as a witch doctor with a bone through his nose.

I think the third bullet point is the only one that even has a chance of being heard.  But I fear that Obama is too committed to cutting Social Security for it to matter.  And I’m sure he can find enough Republicans and conservadems to make it happen.

If only we lived in a democracy, where the will of the people actually counted for something.

    “Why does the NRA hate gun owners?”

    Heh.

    Yeah, I doubt that statistic is going to make the CBS Evening News.
