Browsing the cable networks for inspiration this morning and I found this.
New poll, 61 percent of Americans say country is on the wrong track.
How is anyone supposed to interpret such an ambiguous statement? Of that number how many are concerned because we have a locked up government? How many are concerned because we have a Democratic president or even a black president? How many are concerned because we are ignoring the poor? How many are concerned because the Ryan budget wants to privatize both SS and Medicare?
I could go on but you get the message here. IMHO that 61 percent consists of people who are complete opposites in political belief.
Reversing this poll would tell us that 39 percent of Americans think our country is on the right track. Who are those people and what do they base their opinions on?
This is just some food for thought this morning. If you have any answers send them my way. firstname.lastname@example.org
