It's interesting how you can rig a poll simply be voiding it of context. I wonder how much the poll results would've been different if the question had included the factual clause, "for the first time in 12 years."

Hi Brian. I don't agree that the poll was rigged. Another piece of information that could have been included was the current salaries of judges, which are far above what the average state resident makes. I guess the legislators agree with you and not me, since passing this was one of the few things they did in the special sessions(s). Meanwhile, they expanded the budget gap to $10 billion, according to the Paterson administration. Unfortunately, Paterson is still dishing out his own pork, and he and the legislators seem to think there's plenty of money to give judges a raise.
