Polls and the Internet
The New York Times reports that Senator Bill Frist conducted a poll on the Internet. His Web site asked if there should be an up or down vote on the judicial nominees. Sixty percent said "no" and 40 percent said "yes." He was embarrassed so he did it again with slightly different wording. Result? Eighty-six percent "no" and 14 percent "yes."
Frist's staff mobilized for a third try. This time they got it right--far right. Fifty-four percent said "yes" and 46 percent were laughing too hard to vote no. Nice going Senator! Wonder why we don't trust CNN and FOX polls?
