This is a poll about your opinion on other Americans in general, do you think that you as an individual are smarter in the sense that you understand government better and have or support a better plan or direction for American government and the country as a whole?
I decided to have this poll because I notice a trend amongst all posters, including myself, that when an issue presents itself or a new topic is made almost everyone has an opinion and almost everyone thinks they understand the issue perfectly and everyone else is a complete dunce.
Personally I'm of the opinion that almost every American has way more opinion than they have knowledge, and that most people who think they know whats best when facing a certain issue don't have the knowledge they'd truly need to justify such a strong opinion. I try to avoid this most of the time, but of course no one is perfect, and simply analyze but even my analysis suffers due to my lack of knowledge in many areas. So the problem remains.
So the questions are do you think you're smarter than the average American in this broad context and do you think most Americans don't have the knowledge necessary to justify the certainty of their opinions.
Edit: So I goofed on the Poll, you should be able to pick more than one option, perhaps a mod could fix that?
