DU This CNN Poll: Will Roberts Be Confirmed?
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 10:41 AM by CitizenRob
CNN main page

Quick poll on main page, lower right.

Should Roberts Be Confirmed.

Currently running 77% Yes (confirm the facist) vs. 23% No (I value my rights.)

5. Yeah I have to answer yes...
Though we disagree on some his decisions he isn't a nazi fuck like Bolton et al.

2. Read again
The question is WILL he be confirmed... not should he be confirmed.
I agree that he probably will be confirmed but I definitely don't think he should be. Especially after reading this:

6. It says "will be confirmed."
I don't think he SHOULD be confirmed, but chances are he will be.

8. Unless it changed the poll question reads "do you think roberts WILL
be confirmed", not SHOULD he be confirmed. I still answered NO, but I think he probably will be confirmed.

12. Don't be a defeatist. We have valid reason to fight this nominee
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 10:44 AM by CitizenRob
and saying you're going to lose the battle before it's even begun is a sure way to lose once the fight has started.

19. I'm not saying we're going to lose the battle and I'm not a defeatist.
The question says do you "THINK" he will be confirmed. Right now I THINK he probably will, that in no way discounts the fight that he deserves it simply sets up the task ahead.

I appreciate the kick in the pants though, no time for complacency!

9. CNN was to coward to ask this question
The question is: Will he be confirmed, so the answer is probably yes, unfortunately.

14. 83691 votes is a LOT of Votes, that poll is over, Yes wins.
Edited on Wed Jul-20-05 10:49 AM by Up2Late
Plus, it doesn't give any valid (DUable) choices, It just says "Do you think he will be confirmed?"

It's a snap judgment Poll for Prejudicial people. :shrug:

Yes 77% 71702 votes
No 23% 21415 votes
