TMI, and Too Stupid, Too

Congressional Performance – Rasmussen Reports™

Most voters (55%) think there will be a noticeable change in the lives of most Americans if Democrats win control of both the House and Senate in this November’s elections. Slightly fewer voters (49%) feel there will be a noticeable change in their lives if Republicans win control of Congress instead.

Only about two-out-of-three voters are now aware that Republicans control the House and Democrats have the majority in the Senate. Fifteen percent (15%) think the House is doing a good or excellent job, while 13% say the same of the Senate.

Sampling idiots gives you idiotic results.  Quantifiying those who dislike congress into a single number gives the impression that they all dislike congress for the same reason.  Nothing could be further from the truth – and, in fact, many dislike congress because they are clueless boobs.

In other words, surveys like these just produce more meaningless statistics with which to clog the public mind.  Which may, in fact, be the whole point.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
