    Half of America thinks Donald J. "Corruptus in Extremis" Trump is the victim of a 'witch hunt'.

    "Half of America" is likely a stretch. I saw one "poll" that said "90% of [name your group] thinks [name something]" and it was a sample size of 1000 people.

    If they polled 200M people, and 100M said "witch hunt", then maybe I'd despair.


    Fuck it, I'll despair regardless. This country is 70% dumbfucks.

    I forgot to put a link to it. But it was reputable source, trust me.

    And Drew, He's been going nonstop about it, plus, I'd say half the people in the U.S. are too young to know or just don't care about Watergate (which Trump's behavior seems modeled after).

    Meh.
    acket.

    I also saw something about how it was a poorly worded question. I think it was a USA Today poll and said something like "Do you think the Mueller investigation is a witchhunt, that Trump is being investigated more than other presidents, or that it is politically motivated", so saying yes could be answering any one of three questions. I would say yes seeing that I think he's being investigated more than other presidents, and nothing about my response would mean that there's anything fairness related about that.

    For these polls, do they call people? on land lines? on cell phones? That can really skew the results as well since most younger people don't have land lines and don't answer random calls on their cell phone

    Here's a little more about it. I also think it's a little telling that USA Today's own article about their own poll doesn't mention a) the question asked or b) their polling methodology.

    1000 is not a bad sample size...
    that calc you linked, put 3% as margin and see what happens...
    you hit 1000 for a pop of 20k, and not much more for a pop of 200M

    Regardless of methodology, I think itís obvious people are getting dumber and fatter. Getting upset or angry about such trend is useless... unless you channel such anger to motivate you to do something to help reverse the trend? Start by getting fitter and smarter yourself... as tiggy has demonstrated, thatís the best way to help motivate and inspire the rest of the sorry ass human population.
