LET Poll rigged from the beginning

I just read that the Washington Post, and ABC News released a new poll claiming that "by a 2 to 1 ratio, the public rejected easing Senate rules in a way that would make it harder for Democratic senators to prevent final action on Bush's nominees." The headline read, "Filibuster Rule Change Opposed."

Well, that sure sounds convincing ... until you look at who they polled, and what they asked!

When you move past the erroneous headline and dig into the full poll results, you find that they asked mostly Democrats; they asked misleading, anti-Republican questions; and they didn't even mention the word "filibuster." This poll was rigged from the beginning.

Thankfully, there has been a truly scientific survey done to determine Americans' feelings on the issue of breaking the Democrats' unconstitutional judicial filibusters.

A national survey of 800 registered voters conducted by respected polling firm Ayres, McHenry &; Associates reveals that 82 percent of voters agree that qualified candidates for our nation's highest courts deserve an up-or-down vote in the U.S. Senate.

The filibuster rule change is not "opposed" -- it's supported by an overwhelming majority of Americans!

How about reporting the facts on this issue?
