    Opinions and actions are separate things, as much as we'd all like to believe we act in concert with our opinions at all times. The preferred outcome in complete agreement with opinion is not an option always available. Would be really nice if it was.

    What? We're talking about a poll that's meant to measure opinion, of course people may not always find their prefered answer among the possible choices but that still doesn't in any way excuse the clearly poor choices offered to the takers of this poll.

    In other words, this poll is terrible for judging people's opinions.

    I haven't read the entire poll - just a few questions. I think I will now.

    I see the same problems in this poll I see in most. Yes, the questions are leading. Yes, the order of the questions, even though randomized at times, suggests problems, especially at the end. Yes, there could be more choices. This all may raise partisan hackles. The poll is never the less a valid sample, and the answers are reflective of general opinion. If you want a specific opinion, you're going to have to make it an essay poll so that all opinions and concerns are addressed. That will never happen.

    Maybe not so much argue, since facts are facts, but rather "what he meant was...."

    They think we are too stupid to understand things we hear, you know!

    Good morning, Mr. Nick.

    Soon enough these biased tyrants will be throwing one another under the bus until someone is held responsible for these "phony scandals."

    There is waaaay too much evidence and the progressive media is doing their best along with the White House to sweep it under the rug by preventing readers from having access to this evidence while laughing these scandals off..... Of course the zombies buy it hook-line-n-sinker.

    They wont let facts get in their way - no no.....
    The same was said of Fast & fuzzy, Solyndra, "dreamy" immigration policy and the Keystone pipeline decision. It is a case of mind over matter, if the press does not mind then it does not matter. Our congress critters do not have the time, inclination or resources to actually force the executive to enforce the "letter of the law"; all they can do is express discontent and hope to use that to better their own chances for re-election (or to hinder re-election chances of the opposing party's congress critters).
