Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Just got a call from "Conservatives for a Majority" taking a Poll

They asked me the following:

Ahem,


"Do you believe that Obama's next four years will be EVEN worse than his failed first term?"



So, I answered this old lady from, who knows where, and said the question was poorly stated and included an unproven assertion, that being that I liked what Obama did, and the question was relying on a false premise. So, I continued, "In conclusion, I thought the president did a great job and America is relieved that he will continue his good work."

What did I hear? First, crickets - and then - "Thank you for your answer." Click

Drop the mic

4. For better or worse

poll question: Do you believe that Obama's next four years will be EVEN worse than his failed first term?"

poll results:

5,000 responses
1,150 replied YES THINGS WILL BE WORSE in second term.
2,000 replied NO THINGS WILL NOT BE WORSE than first term.
1,250 refused to answer
600 hung up

Scientific proof that 63% of americans (3,150 out of 5,000) believe that things will either be worse than obama's first term,
OR, that obamas failed first term was worse than his coming second term.

Conclusion: 63% thought either obama's first term was a failure, or his second term will be worse.

.. in the rightwing universe, scientific methods, are not scientific methods.
