Stupid Polls

A recent Rasmussen poll suggests that a majority of voters on both sides of the aisle want to see McCain and Obama in a town hall setting. Of course, they want to see the two nominees go at it, but by asking this question they are trying to frame this as an issue and one that Obama is running away from. I would like to see these polls asking real questions like...

Is John McCain too old to be President?

Whose Iraq policy do you favor?

Who would do better in restoring the international opinion of America?

Does John McCain make you uncomfortable when he attempts to smile?

These are questions. These should be polled (especially the last one). Asking people if they want to hear the two candidates discuss issues is a given. People want it, so don't try to turn this into a McCain talking point more than he already has. McCain likes to think that he is best during these town-hall meeetings, but he bungles ever forum he steps into.

Bring it on, St. McCain.
