Shock poll: Americans prefer dogs to cats by more than 30 points

To cleanse the palate. I was going to do another post on the disappointment that is Rubio and how the “American workers can’t cut it” quote from his aide looks even worse in context, but neither of those topics depressed me enough. I needed something more eeyorish, something to make me despair about the judgment of the electorate at large, not just a bunch of Beltway RINOs who aren’t even smart enough to pander to the right constituency. And then, thanks to PPP, I found it.

I can accept defeat on this question but I can’t accept a landslide. Every day, on various topics, I find commenters tweeting “America is finished.” Only now do I realize that they’re right.

ideo

No daylight between the RINOs and true conservatives there, my friends. This is why we lose elections.

The partisan split is surprising. Not the Republican numbers, but the Democratic ones:

rep

I thought there’d be a stronger feline showing among both Dems and women. Nope. Both top out at 26 percent. In a world of partisan gaps and gender gaps, the population errs on this one uniformly.

In fact, unless I missed something in PPP’s crosstabs, there’s only one demographic that puts cats within double digits of dogs. It’s landslide after landslide when testing for sex, race, ideology, geography, even vegan/vegetarianism. Only one group makes a contest of it. The free-thinkers, the contrarians — the young adults:

age

Gay marriage, pot legalization, opposition to intrusive government, and cats (almost). Second look at the brightness of America’s future?

Update: On second thought, Jay Cost figured out a way to make me sufficiently depressed about Rubio.

It is hard to distinguish Rubio's approach on this from *exactly* what everybody expected Charlie Crist to do …

I have both.

I find male cats far superior than females as far as hunters and they are way more affectionate. Just anecdotal evidence mind you. He serves his purpose by killing mice and chipmunks and spreading cat hair all over my clothes in the morning.

My dogs I love too. They’re Great Pyrennes and are just awesome dogs. They keep the beasties away, watch over the livestock and keep me company or it could be the other way around.

I ran this story by my feline and she put her nose in the air, sniffed, and sauntered off.

Yes, actually they do. Once in a great while my more wolf like Great Pyrennes will go after my very vocal half Siamese female cat but she really only does it for fun. LOL.

Cats are the BEST! Cool, calm, collected, smart, funny, wise, independent, clean, good natured, neat, clean, pretty, lovable......I could go on and on. Dogs smell, eat poop and drool. LOL

I do not dislike dogs - I dislike 95% of dog owners.
