Yesterday it seemed like everyone I spoke with during the day wanted to talk politics. That’s OK with me, as I never shy away from an intelligent, non-hated filled political discussion.
My very informal and unscientific poll of people who brought up the subject (or did so after I made a general disgruntled statement about the recession) found the following:
In New York
87.5% (7 people) supported Obama
12.5% (1 person) supported McCain
100% (1 for 1) supported Obama (“George Bush’s policies failed us big-time in Michigan and we won’t take it anymore”).
100% (1for 1) supported McCain, and you know why? “I don’t listen to anything any Democrat says. Never have, never will.” I needed the information she had to fax me, so I diplomatically didn’t pursue it, but for goodness sake, if you don’t listen, how do you learn?
Happy Halloween! Have a great weekend. If you haven’t fully made up your mind, learn a bit more about your local elections as well as the national one, and let’s go Rangers and Jets (and woo-hoo, as I write this, the Knicks are undefeated).
