According to a recent Rasmussen poll:
Forty-two percent (42%) of U.S. voters say a group of people randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress.
The poll was conducted based on Rasmussen’s standard methodology in which they place automated calls to “randomly-selected phone numbers.”
So people randomly selected from the phone book, people who just happened to be home at the time… people willing to spend 10+ minutes talking to a robo-call machine, were asked if people randomly selected from a phone book should be given a well paying government job?
I’m certainly not a polling expert, but this one is pretty damn hard to take seriously.
