Cleaning out the old IN box, I ran across this Tweet I had sent myself meaning to blog about it last week:
New poll: Which presidential candidate would you want to have lunch with?http://pwire.at/mJNvAf
Turns out that far more Americans polled — 53 percent — would rather have lunch with Barack Obama than any of the GOP candidates. Sarah Palin came in at a “distant second” with 16 percent.
Last election cycle, all the talk was about who you wanted to have a beer with. Asking the question this way is going to foul up our stats, for comparison purposes.
But it may be a better, more rigorous question. Most of us are probably less picky who we have a beer with. Although it depends on who’s buying.
