Letter: Majority of voting public are fools
As a follow-up to my recent letter to the editor, I report below the results of a Washington Post-NBC News poll. The poll was a random sample of 1,002 adults and had a margin of error of 3.5 percent.
The results were reported in a local daily newspaper as: “Despite the problems with the health care law’s implementation, Democrats maintain an edge over Republicans on which party Americans trust to deal with the issue, by a margin of 44 percent to 36 percent. Democrats hold advantages of similar size on energy and immigration. On helping the middle class, the Democrats have a 13-point advantage.”
I think the results of the poll prove the point … the majority of the voting public are fools. Who else would look at the failures of the issues mentioned and still (still!) support the ones responsible.
Pretend to be unbiased and think about: 1) the Affordable Care Act—it’s a disaster by any unbiased measure … more people have been hurt by it than helped. 2) Energy? Immigration? I know of no significant legislation on either front with the exception of the defeat of Obama’s Cap and Trade proposal … another job killer. 3) Helping the middle class? Ask yourself ‘Am I better off than I was six years ago?’ … ’Is the country better off than it was six years ago?’
Wise up, America!
