Nah polls are stupid. Basically most people don't understand poll questions. So they go with whatever answer sounds nicer. For instance, if someone said "Do you support John McCain's tax cuts which some believe promote eating poor black people," I'll say I do support it. Because I know John McCain doesn't advocate the injestion of people. However, there are millions in this country who will say "Wow, I didn't know McCain supported eating black people... I'm completely against his tax plan now." And it's not just against McCain or for Obama. That's just how people take polls on any subject. They pretend they understand the topic, go with whatever most people seem to support (that's why they'll agree to "Do you support Barack Obama's plan for universal health care which has received praise from some republicans" but disagree with "Do you support Barack Obama's plan for universal health care which has been compared to socialism in America." The plans not changing just the wording), and try to seem not insane.

"Compromise, hell! That's what has happened to us all down the line -- and that's the very cause of our woes. If freedom is right and tyranny is wrong, why should those who believe in freedom treat it as if it were a roll of bologna to be bartered a slice at a time?"
