What Do 80%+ of Americans Agree On?
So-called "80 percent issues" are rare in politics: issues that garner public support of 80% or more.
We have a new one from a Zogby survey Let Freedom Ring conducted just last week.
Here is the question:
Some contend that the reason federal legislation is often thousands of pages long is because provisions to benefit special interests can be more easily buried in long bills, and so citizens cannot decipher the legislative language quickly enough to be able to communicate support or opposition to their Senators and Members of Congress before a vote is taken. Do you strongly agree, somewhat agree, somewhat disagree or strongly disagree with this opinion?
1. Strongly agree
2. Somewhat agree
3. Somewhat disagree
4. Strongly disagree
5. Not sure
The total of those who "agree" is 84% -- a truly phenomenal result. And 61% of that 84% agree "strongly." Even 69% of Democrats agree. For Democrat Senators to disregard the views of 69% of likely Democrat voters is politically perilous and likely to be regarded as arrogant and out of touch with their base.
Pollsters create Polls to serve their own agendas.
Polls mean nothing.
