We don’t know anything about politics. Happy voting!

November 2, 2010

According to a new Harris poll, we’re not familiar enough with any of our top government officials to have opinions about them. Data indicates that Hilary Clinton is the most highly thought of, while we don’t know squat about Ben Bernanke, Tim Geithner, or Robert Gates. We also have no idea what’s in the health care reform bill. And it’s voting day, so this must be scary information for politicians who think we care who they are or what they have to say.

The poll suggests that “many people can hold strong views about Washington without actually following what is going on there.”

It takes more than a clever sign, a negative ad, and good PR to be memorable. Regardless, I hope you voted, even if you had no idea who you were voting for or why. 🙂
