You know what’s useful? Stupid polls. Polls that, for instance, ask the average American whether or not New Orleans is capable of withstanding another hurricane. Oh, but Republicans and Democrats agree on that one – 84% think the Big Easy isn’t capable of surviving another hurricane. It sure is useful that these people have no idea what they’re talking about. Why should news networks bother asking such questions to unqualified people?
Just so you know, the poll was done by CNN, and I saw it when I was flipping channels (which is why I have no citation).
