I was being sarcastic. Of course they had no way of doing modern-style opinion polls in 1787. I just have gotten tired of the way the media acts like popularity ratings are the criterion whether a policy or decision is good or bad. When Clinton was shown to have lied under oath, we were supposed to ignore it because his popularity ratings were still high. When Bush had low ratings, that was supposed to discredit anything he did.

Why? Landlines hadn't been overtaken by cell phones yet! Back then, a simple autodialer with a router to a call center might have worked well for the Tories, as they tried to understand their internals!
