so... I get a call yesterday asking for my participation in a "brief" poll. It's Gallup - THE poll people. Having a FIL who's a statistics guru I actually kind of feel obligated to participate in a poll now and then - to have my voice heard... or maybe it's just that I spend ALL DAY with children and even the pollster is a break from "kid speak"
hmmm... now how to tell this story without getting all "political" on you...
okay - here... let's just list a few of the questions that I was asked...
Do You Approve of the Job that Barack Obama is doing as President?
Do You Have Health Care Coverage?
Do You have any health concerns?
then a bunch of questions about finances and whether or not we have trouble feeding our family, providing them shelter, taking them for health care...
What is your marital status?
Are you happy with your quality of life?
Is your quality of life improving?
How many children under 18 live in your house? (wait, this is funny in a minute)
Are you afraid to walk in your neighborhood alone after dark?
How tall are you?
How much do you weigh?
Have you ever given birth? (ummm... I guess the answer COULD have been no...)
So in the end I'm wondering exactly WHAT these people were trying to accomplish - since we all know that Obama and 26% of this country are all for the current form of reform - and a mere 74% are either opposed to health care reform in general or would like to see a different reform than is currently on the table.
oh wait, I went and got "political" didn't I? crap.
Just wait - they're calling you next I'm sure. Just don't buy into it when they say it will be "brief".
