21. Polling Questions Misleading

The Moral 22% factor is very misleading in the polls.

I will need find the acutal results somewhere, but I have already read this.

They broke down the categories so that major issues were split.

I belive 1) Terrorism & 2) War in Iraq both got about 20% of the vote. If you combine them they lead to over 40%.

Also, 1) Economy & 2) Taxes were split but combined would have gotten around 35-38% if I remember correctly.

So if you reassess the final polling questions, it looks something like this:

1) Terrorism/War in Iraq: 42% (since Bush is so good at mixing the two)
2) Economy/Taxes: 38%
3) 'Moral Values': 22%
4) Other

People need to wake up and learn to think on their own.
