    ...meaning nothing to the senators & congressmen in Washington D.C.  Especially the Democratic senators & congressmen (and women).

    Case-in-point:  The public option.

    The public option always polled very well with the American public, but it never had a chance,  because our Washington D.C. pundits & "centrist politicians" framed the public option as "a pet project of the far left."  Of course, our fierce advocate president never did one thing to curtail this mendacious talking point.

    Polls nearly always favor Democrats & their policies.  Of course, Democrats have such profoundly pathetic political instincts, they take favorable polls as a signal to go against everything the polls tell them the American people want.

    Countdown with Keith Olbermann: Ubiquitous obsession of the right wing realm, though nobody ever watches it.

    •  What were the results of polls for torture? (0+ / 0-)

      Or should I say, enhanced interrogation techniques?  I honestly can't remember.  Though I think holding Bushco and his minions accountable for breaking the law has always been less than 50%.

      We can't give up our Constitution if it doesn't poll well.
