The Audience of No

I keep giggling over the latest post from Andy Borowitz:

Instant Poll: 90% of Republicans Who Did Not See Obama’s Speech Disagree With It

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report) – President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address has already gotten a big thumbs-down from one key group of voters: Republicans who did not see the speech.

According to an instant poll conducted by the University of Minnesota’s Opinion Research Institute, 90 percent of Republicans who did not see the President’s speech strongly disagreed with it.

Additionally, 95 percent of Republicans polled agreed with the statement, “If I had seen the President’s speech, I’ll bet I would have hated it even more.”

Davis Logsdon, who supervised the poll, said there were certain difficulties in polling Republican voters: “Many of them would not let us finish asking the question before answering ‘No.'”
