Poll Shows Swing in Mood

Majority now believe U.S. effort in Iraq will succeed, 53-39 H/T Hot Air

Of course, I don’t believe one should govern based on polling data. If something is the right thing to do, you should do it. What this does deflate is one of the many arguments from the “get-out-now” crowd.

    At the same token, if something is popular yet disastrously wrong, one should not do it.

    Sage advice. Wish our leaders would pay it heed.

    Hrm. I should have chosen either “by the same token,” or “at the same time.”

    My brain is clearly firing on all 12 cylinders at the moment.

    I particularly liked the polls… “Is Scott Peterson guilty?”

    (By “liked” I mean… was amused by, frustrated, and flabbergasted.)

    Of course polls don’t change if something is necessary or not or what the best course of action is. I find polls about Iraq or Afghanistan or just about anything political frustrating because it seems to me that what the media (usually) is polling is, “What opinion do people have from watching our broadcasts?”

    I don’t know what to think about you guys’ criticism of polling. I need to see a poll on the issue.
