Unrelated but interesting, Pat Hynes at ABP takes a look at The Scandal of Public Opinion and how pollsters tell you what you think and help you to finally think it.
What has happened is this: These Mainstream Media polls have literally created a fantasy world, inhabited by liberal Democrats, in which George W. Bush is each day less popular than the last. I sometimes half expect a poll to emerge that shows more people oppose George W. Bush than live in the United States. And yet he keeps getting elected and Republican numbers in Washington continue to grow. And so you end up with distraught anti-war moms living in ditches and dangerous radicals emerging as Democrat Party leaders.
