DUers, DU this Roberts poll in the state newspaper. Please.

Clarion Ledger, largest paper in the state.

Scroll about 3/4 way down the page. Poll is on the left side of page.

Do you agree with the nomination of John G. Roberts Jr. to the U.S. Supreme Court?

President Bush has named federal Appeals Court Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to a seat on the Supreme Court, delighting Republicans while unsettling some Democrats with the selection of a young jurist with impeccable conservative credentials. Do you agree with the nomination of Judge Roberts?

Currently:

Yes: 71.8
No: 28.2

1200 Respondents.

Please vote NO in this poll and kick after voting. THANKS!

10. Yes, completely anti-Democratic bias.
This is a little surprising to me...this paper has always been very supportive of state Democrats. However, they did support Bush in 2004.

12. The state didn't exclude Catholics.
A private adoption agency did. After pressure from state officials and their own supporters, and the national Bethany org, Jackson's Bethany changed their stance.

They are not a state agency.

15. Thanks, everyone. Let's keep it up until it's at least 50/50
I appreciate everyone taking the time to do this. This poll will be featured in the paper tomorrow. Let's shock Mississippians by having NO carry at least 50%.

Here is a recent question: President Bush has named federal Appeals Court Judge John G. Roberts Jr. to a seat on the Supreme Court, delighting Republicans while unsettling some Democrats with the selection of a young jurist with impeccable conservative credentials. Do you agree with the nomination of Judge Roberts?

My question is: Could you be any more biased in the wording of your poll? I mean you could say "those slovenly, butt-munching Democrats" instead. Yeah, that would help.

Butt-Munchingly yours

Look at the photo, a couple of goofball looking characters. Is there no dignity to be found anywhere in Little Boots' realm?
