    The count is 42-yes, 13-no. Check it out for yourself NP.
    I did that.......Surely you follow the polls in the real world........Why are the results 180 out?

    Let's see the poll you are referring to out in the real world NP.

    Actually, no I don't follow the polls of the RW when it comes to your question because I don't really care that much about people whining, nor do I really know their individual situations. Here, on the Internet, we can get more of an explanation for why people feel they are better or worse off, overall, than we do just from looking at a poll.

    Why do you think they are different? Most people have given quite personal reasoning behind why they have it better today than they did 3 years ago, even if its not very detailed for some. Reasoning that, for the most part, has nothing to do with their political lean, and certainly would be very little different if someone besides Obama was in office (providing it wasn't an actual dictator who set up a very restrictive government for everyone).

    Maybe those who have fallen on harder times cannot afford to be on the Internet, particularly DP, discussing whether their life really is better or worse. Maybe DP just has a larger amount of people who are able to make their lives better no matter who is President.

    Yes, very much so. I'm well off financially, and I'm getting paid to go to college. Got a place of my own, a new truck, and plenty of things to keep me occupied.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    So your not even a little curious as to why the voters in DP are so out of touch with the real world?

    I believe your the exception rather then the rule..........My youngest son is finishing up grad school in June at Arizona St......He was recruited by a handful of colleges and he chose Ariz. st..........He has not paid a dime for his post grad education and already has a job lined up paying $70K a year...........He actually got paid in Grad school..........Of course he carrried a 4.0 GPA as and undergrad and as a post grad.......That probably had a little to do it.........
