Oh, My: Zogby Interactive Poll Finds That Independents Believe Bush Administration More Transparent and Open Than Chicago Socialist
Interesting thing about polls: When people like you, they claim to like everything about you. When they don't like you, they start saying they don't like anything about you.
That is why, for example, when Captain Wonderful was leading in the run-up to the 2008 election, pollsters reported the public claimed they actually trusted Obama on taxes more than McCain.
Taxes. And the deficit. And controlling government spending.
And for American Jews? They claimed they thought that Obama would be better for Israel.
Just a tendency people have to blow off specific, secondary questions and just keep answering the same way they answer the primary, general question.
Which candidate is has a better understanding of the trauma experienced by captured pilots held hostage at the Hanoi Hilton for eight years? Why, Barack Obama, naturally!
I don't know if this poll finding really indicates that independents are waking up specifically to the fact that Obama is very deceptive and manipulative, or if it's just the standard "Yeah, he kind of sucks on everything" response, but either way, I likes it.
Thanks to AHFF Geoff.
