View Full Version : A Stupid Poll About the Right to Insurrection

CBS News, seizing upon the zeitgeist, one supposes, had a new poll out Tuesday night which Ive just seen now. In it they ask respondents whether they think there is a right to violent action against the government.

The question is phrased thus: Do you think it is ever justified for citizens to take violent action against the government, or is it never justified?

Then, of course, the responses are broken down by party affiliation. Surprise: while just eleven percent of Democrats and eleven percent of independents believe it is ever justified

I've seen some stupid polls in my life but this one takes the cake:

#1, CBS is full of partisan hacks. #2, the best they can come up with is a poll that asks if it's probable that this nut was motivated by politics? PROBABLY? C'mon CBS. Just based on this poll alone, any credibility CBS might have had just went down the crapper.
