    Just when you thought things could not get weirder, they do.. in a poll by public policy polling.com amongst voters in Ohio... they asked a series of questions, one of which was:

    Amazingly 6% of Republicans said Willard, and even more amazingly 1% of Democrats.. 31% said not sure, which is more weird.

    The poll i saw said 15% said flipper deserved the credit while app. 47% weren't sure whether it was flipper or Oby. For a party that says that Oby shouldn't take credit for it or takes to much credit they sure are fast to give flipper the credit. I'm sure if W was potus that made the call there probably would be statues of him in every square of every town. But i digress for that many people to give flipper the credit when he didn't even have the title of dog catcher is pretty telling, many repugnants are either totally ignorant baffoons or completely out of touch with reality.

    Dumb, loaded question. Should have been Obama vs. Bush. Or Obama, Clinton, Bush and Romney. It'd be like: who do you think deserves more credit for 48 months of 8% unemployment, Obama or Romney?

    The point of the survey was to show just how ignorant or out of touch the repugnants are.

    Go to a strong democrat stronghold anywhere in the country and ask them who the VP is and 50% of them couldn't tell you.

    I think a lot of you people are obsessed with left vs right, dem vs repub, my side vs your side. Seriously, anything that measures at 6% in a poll like this, is pretty irrelevent imo. Especially when you consider the 30-40% moron factor that exists in American society. Did anyone consider that some of these people, like many of you, would say Mickey Mouse deserves credit for something, before they'd ever admit that credit might belong to the "other" side? Is it any wonder this country is where it is right now.

    Here are a few examples of how stupid some americans are.

    stupid answers on easy questions (stupid everyday americans) - YouTube

    Stupid Americans! (Skit - 2001) - YouTube

    This one takes the cake. Especially as most of us remember what happened on this date.

    Dumb Americans - 9/11 interview - YouTube

    The right loves to spend time on that river in Egypt.. this whole thing reflects a sector of the electorate that is flat out dumb..

    It does not have to do what the question was or how it was worded, the answer defies logic..

    It could Darryl. It could also indicate a group of people who wanted to play with the poll if you will.

    i.e. my sister in law was ranting and raving about the DNC and how awesome it was. My wife said she wasn't watching and her sister flew into a tizzy. When my wife was asked by her sister "since you say you arent voting for Obama or Romney, then who?" my wife said "I'm writing in Loafy"


    Loafy our pup we rescued from Galveston TX.

    Part of this could be "wow you are dumb" types, and the possibility does exist that 6% of the people were trying to be funny. I dont think we can fully tell one way or the other.

    I think you can by the rest of the poll.. in any poll do not think after a series of questions people all of a sudden are comedians..

    Valid point D. I was just trying to think outside the box.

    Maybe that was too smart of me :)
