Poll Position

It’s the end of the 2-week polling period, and the results are in and, wow, the readers really responded and reacted to this poll, garnering the most votes of any poll we at TBWA have ever posted.

We thank you for offering your opinions.

The question for the past 2-weeks was: Does “President” Bush have the constitutional power to approve wiretaps and spying without a court order?

  • 80% of the more than 300 votes show that the majority of people believe that Bush does not have that authority and is trampling on the civil liberties of U.S. citizens.
  • 9% believe that the President does have the authority and believe that ANYTHING is okay in order to keep the country safe.
  • 9% of responders are split on the issue and think that spying on a non-domestic basis is fine, but are against it from a domestic standpoint.
  • And 2% of the over 300 voters do not think that this has any effect on them and don’t care what the president does.

Scott and I respect all the answers given, though the individuals who selected option 4, that this doesn’t affect them and they don’t care, need to get a clue. To act and respond with that much torpor is insipid and moronic.

Again, thank you for responding.

Please take a moment to respond to the poll above as we present to you the new 2-week poll question. As vandals in Denmark desecrate Muslim graves and an Iranian newspaper calls for cartoons about the Holocaust, we pose the question: The Muslim Cartoon controversy: what is your take on it?
