    Why is it that so many pollsters ask oversimplified polling questions that in the end give us no valuable information? If you are asking an informed voter about a bill versus one only listening to rhetoric you are not getting the best picture of the electorate.

    Pollsters should ask the questions that get to the specifics of the bills in question. Thus informing the electorate on the facts and not the fiction that has been driven into their skulls. Asking someone whether they want to repeal the bill is irrelevant. But asking if they want to repeal the Prescription Support for the Elderly will get you an entirely different answer and one that truly gets to the truth of the matter.
