They asked 1,000 people and many of us blindly figure that's representative of 300 million. I didn't mind the questions they asked this time, but who's home to catch these calls? Anyone ever wonder that? Are they made during the day? In the evening? On weekends? Are they made cross-country? Or in the rust belt? What's magic about 1,000? Why not just ask 25?
I completely agree with your sentiments here:
Maybe it's time to stop blaming the government for everything and start being introspective about ourselves, the People. Our government is only as competent/effective as the electorate that chooses them.
