Some of the most popular political polls are ones about the economy. While these polls can be great barometers of how optimistic or pessimistic people feel about their financial well-being, they can also be misleading. Unless the term “economy” is specifically defined and the respondents are similar in having the same financial and educational opportunities and in the same age range, among other factors, their answers can either present an accurate picture or skew the results to creating a false view of the economy. For example, nowadays, polls on the economy tout how Americans don’t feel “good” about the economy. It hasn’t made sense, though it’s music to the ears of Republicans. The US economy is the only strong economy in the world that is still generating jobs and people have money in their pockets, even with continuing layoffs and inflation. So why the disconnect between public sentiment and economic facts? A new survey shows it may not be about the economy, (“stupid”)!; The situation in Haiti has devolved so exponentially that one African country is getting ready to send in its own soldiers to restore order; Around this time, many families are debating whether or not sending their children to college is a worthwhile investment.
