In any case, the NY Times article submitted the idea that the average Tea Partier was above the average American. Okay, so what?

Unfortunately it barely registers for any bias, this is more about cultural contention than anything else.One other thing though, I can see people honestly opposing it for non-fiscal reasons if they believe there is a liberal slant, even a slight one. The government funds should not be used to advance one political agenda over another. Now I personally have no idea if the NPR is biased or not and if so, how biased it is. I've never listened to it, and I'm not going to take someone else's word for it. But I do think it's VERY difficult to give any kind of in depth analysis of political issues and events without letting one's own political bias creep in. And if one bias is consistently presented over the other with federal tax dollars, then I would call that that as a problem.
Most in U.S. want public health option: poll | Reuters
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Most Americans would like to see a "public option" in health insurance reform but doubt anything Congress does will lower costs or improve care in the short term, according to a poll released on Thursday.
The survey of 2,999 households by Thomson Reuters Corp shows a public skeptical about the cost, quality and accessibility of medical care.
Just under 60 percent of those surveyed said they would like a public option as part of any final healthcare reform legislation, which Republicans and a few Democrats oppose.Poll: 54 percent support DREAM Act – CNN Political Ticker - CNN.com Blogs
Washington (CNN) - A majority of Americans support a measure that would give legal status to illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. as children if they join the military or go to college, according to a new national survey.
But a Gallup poll released Friday also indicates wide partisan and generational divides over the issue.
Fifty-four percent of people questioned in the survey say they would vote for the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to citizenship for thousands of young adults currently living in the country illegally, with 42 percent saying they would vote against the bill and four percent unsure.
Funny, isn't it, that no one is presenting evidence supporting the continued existence of taxpayer funding for NPR?
Then again, we all know that there's nothing on NPR that isn't either replicated on commercial media or can't be picked up if needed.
Since NPR serves no unique function, there's no reason for it, even outside of the fact that Constitution does not allow it.
What a surprise.
Should Mayor Snorkum make the effort to educate the Sgt on the concept of leading questions, selected interest groups, and other forms of poll manipulation?
Would it be worth the effort to point out that polls showing the opposite are available to counter his?
Would it be worthwhile to point out that the voters in 2010 made it perfectly plain that their goal is the repeal of that single-payer crap Obama forced upon us which was later declared unconstitutional by the courts?
No, beyond a certain point it is best to let the easily led be led away.
....and the results of this poll.....
....resulted in a majority of Single Payer advocating Democrats and Amnesty loving liberals being tossed out on their ass.......
Is there some reason all those programs you people claim are so interesting and important can't survive without the corporate subsidies you condemn for private businesses?
