No, but thanks for asking

What is it about the Stupidity Tax that brings out the Stupid Question at America's copy desks? No, don't answer that.

It is kind of a reminder, though, that if you want people to trust your polling data come election season, two good starting points would be:

1) Never invent stuff about public opinion
2) Leave the "you may already be a winner!!!" to the hucksters themselves

Any questions? No, don't answer that either.
