The Beginning of the End For Both Political Parties?

Sure, it’s another round of poll results, but two recent polls show that Americans, in large numbers, don’t support President Bush, the Congress, or either major political party to put this country back on “the right track,” regardless of what that track may be.
The main thrust of discontent seems to be Iraq. Okay, no big […]

America- Going Down The Tubes?

That seems to be the general feeling, according to a new AP-Ipsos poll. Only 25% of those surveyed believe that the US is moving in the right direction.

If You Don’t Love God, You Can’t Be Our President

A recent USA/Gallup Poll asked about Americans willingness to vote for presidential candidates from a variety of different genders, religions, and other backgrounds.

Grading Credibility on a Curve

Credibility is an essential element in everyone’s personality. It’s the stuff that allows people to trust you and for you to trust them. Even in a skeptical and cynical world, it’s an important component in how others see you and how you see yourself. Without it, relationship s get dicey fast.

If there’s anything predictable in politics it’s that when a politician’s numbers go down he’ll decry polls as worthless crap. He’ll poo-poo them as not reflective of anything other than the pollster’s obvious bias.
