Mailbag: The Only Poll That Really Counts

Whippersnapper: Doesn’t the majority of Americans get a chance to share the “public sentiment” every two or four years?
I get tired of people who use approval ratings and polls to prove how badly the party in power is performing. Maybe it’s the smugness of those who believe the only answer to all questions is to switch from party A to party B. And neither party has the answers to the big questions: health care, middle east crazy people, energy shortages, massive entitlement programs.

DFO: Despite chest thumping here, there’s only a coupla seats really in play in the House of Reps this fall. And that should mean the R’s keep control of everything for another two years. I wouldn’t mind seeing the D’s control the House by a Rep or two because that might shock the R’s to abandon their wasteful ways.
