Pressure of Polls

I got polled yesterday.  Two young people came up to my door, supporting "ACORN", and wanted to know whether I support affirmative action (I do, strongly).  Then they asked what I thought the two biggest problems facing America are.  ...No prompting other than that, free-form answer allowed.

I choked!  Instead of answering what I really think (loss of civil liberties and allowing a probable war criminal to lead our country), I answered that "I thought was right", namely: "The economy and Iraq".

One more reason why polls suck great big sweaty donkey balls.

I was pretty disappointed with myself, afterward.
