  •  The chained CPI question wording seems biased (0+ / 0-)

    I don't want to get into this because I'm tired of getting beaten up over it, but there are two sides to the issue: one side believes that chained CPI is superior because it tracks all consumers' cost of living more accurately; the other side believes that traditional CPI is superior because on average it will increase Social Security benefits faster. The question appears to focus only on the second side, which, from the first side's point of view, begs the question.

    Therefore, the effect of the poll will be only to reinforce each side in its position: the first side because their position wasn't even addressed, the second because the results appear to bolster their position.
