WE WON'T BE SAFE WHILE POLITICAL PARTIES ARE LEGAL

AMERICANS DO NOT WANT REPUBLICANS BACK IN POWER, BY A VAST MAJORITY

Posted by politicalpartypooper on January 27, 2010

Being that I am driven by politics and what people think of it, I couldn’t help myself recently, when I decided to take a very informal poll.

WARNING!!!!!:  This poll is an unprofessional and unfunded one question survey of my family, friends, acquaintances and clients.  It is in no way representative of all Americans, but is based on a very wide range of political views, religious views, and includes people from every level of wealth, including one homeless person, who managed to wrangle a Ten from me for his trouble.  Admittedly, the poll was weighted heavily by small business owners and the affluent, as they make up the majority of my clientele.

So, I concluded this survey a little over a week ago, but had not published the results due to the exciting and mysterious amount of weird, special, breaking news over the last ten days.

Two hundred people were each asked one simple question; “Given the state of the economy and of current policy and failures in Washington, it is clear that Democrats will lose seats in Congress and the Senate this fall.  Do you want Republicans back in power in Washington?”

Overwhelmingly, the answer was, “NO!”

Let’s break it down: In a straight look at the numbers, 136 out of 200 people answered “no”.  That’s sixty-eight percent.  Of the 200 people asked the question, 111 were male, 89 were female.  Amongst the male population, seventy-one  said “no” while forty said “yes”.  Sixty-five out of eighty-nine women said they did not want Republicans back in power in Washington.  Amongst small business owners, male and female combined, there were 128 respondents.  Eighty-nine of those said they did not want Republicans back in power, which represents sixty-nine percent.

When age comes into play, here is how it broke down:  Of two hundred people asked the question, 123 were aged forty and above.  Seventy-five of those said “no”, meaning Republicans get a favorable response about thirty-nine percent of the time.  Those aged thirty-nine or less responded negatively at a seventy-nine percent clip.  Seventy-nine percent!

As I said earlier, this poll is in no way an official poll, but I suspect that if one of the many polling groups were to take over from here, and ask a broader range of people, the numbers would not be all that different.

Incidentally, when I asked my seventeen- year- old daughter if she wanted the Republicans back in power, she said, “Huh?”

    So what party did these Mensa candidates want in power? Your incredibly well designed poll the eliminated any bias (yes/no question, no alternative responses), a select population of small business owners ( are these self employed entrepreneurs hemp farmers in Madison, do they have employees,etc?) is useless.

    Democrats have controlled Congress and are responsible for the current economic crisis. Need I remind you dithering fools that it was the Massachusetts gerbil assasin Barney Frank, and cronies who used the Community Reinvestment Act to push high risk mortgages through Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. This was the domino that started the collapse.

    And by the way who were the top donors to O-Blame-A’s campaign? Goldman-Sachs, Merril Lynch, AIG, etc.

    I will be back later to school you on reality.

    You are welcome.

    You’re going to school me on reality? Then you better get into it soon. We are in this mess because of George W. Bush’ spending and tax cuts, and AIG being basically unregulated, with every big bank in the States drooling all over themselves for quick profits for two decades. As for the lobbying, yeah, both parties are pretty much sell-outs.

    I’m pretty sure my little unofficial poll says one thing and one thing only; people are sick to death of BOTH parties.
