I answered the phone, and there I was, in the middle of a political survey. What did they want to know? My age, race and political party affiliation for starters.
Then...they wanted to know who I'd voted for in recent local elections.
Then...they asked if I had strongly positive, somewhat postive, neutral, somewhat negative or strongly negative views of OBAMA and McCAIN.
To top it off, the grand finale was, would I vote for a candidate that told me I was overtaxed and said he was going to reduce taxes, OR one that said they would fix the healthcare crisis and say they would push toward alternative energy sources?
This entire survey makes me SICK. OBAMA or McCAIN are out there wanting to know what they can SAY to gain my vote. Not what they can DO. And does it really boil down to those two or three different issues. PLEASE! Clearly neither one is out here living in the real world.
How about this: LET YOUR ACTIONS (VOTES, AFFILIATIONS, ETC.) MATCH YOUR WORDS. If they don't match, I'm not interested. Frankly, my vote is too previous to waste on anyone who is doing anything less.
