Republican Math

by Pa Rock

The local NPR sttation has been difficult to receive for the past couple of weeks due to the heat, so I have begun to spin the radio dial and listen to some of the other local offerings.

This morning, as I took Nick and Boone to the airport at 3:30 a.m., and later as I was driving to work around 6 a.m., I was listening to the "oldies" station and heard this political tidbit repeated twice: The Rasmussen Poll has just come out with a new set of polling data that shows McBush (my term, not theirs) leading Obama by 55% to 51 percent.

I don't know about you, but I tend to be skeptical of any poll that reflects the opinion of 106% of the population! Where did these guys learn to count - Florida?
