Dear Mr. Zogby,
I just read your latest poll and couldnt help but notice the left wing slant of your questions relative to rolling back the tax cut.
Your questions on taxes were not only slanted but confusing, maybe you can help me: Your question reads Please tell me if you favor or oppose rolling back the tax cut if it means the deficits would increase? If I favor rolling back the tax cuts, does that then mean the deficits would increase? In your framing the question, if appears deficits would increase either way.
The following are questions that should be asked to get a true portrayal of American opinion:
Please tell me if you favor or oppose additional tax cuts if favoring means significantly more money to keep for college, home, automobile, groceries, clothes for your kids, vacation, helping your elderly parents?
If you had your own business which of the following choices would help your business grow, prosper and hire more people:
A) More tax cuts and faster depreciation of equipment.
B) Paying for Health Insurance for workers you had to lay off for whatever reason.
C) Paying additional unemployment benefits to your laid off workers.
In an effort to pay for prescription drugs for seniors, more Medicare, welfare, social security and education, would you make additional voluntary tax payments to the Government:
Are you kidding?
According to USA Today, the following are yearly average utility costs for the following cities: Tokyo $5,896, Paris $4,247, London $2,129 and USA average $1,291. Numerous potential Democratic Presidential candidates have recently called for subsidizing solar and wind technology in addition to conservation as the backbone of their Energy policy, referencing the sophistication of European and Japanese government policy.
Given the factual annual utility costs for European and Japanese cities do you agree with a policy relying on solar, wind and conservation?
Can't vote, power's out
If America had a food shortage, do you think it could be solved by telling America to eat less?
Too Hungry to Care
Please tell me if you favor or oppose drilling more domestic oil and gas wells including ANWR if
more drilling means paying .10-.25¢ less per gallon, paying 10-25% less for home heating bills and paying less for all airfare?
Please tell me which of the two below choices can best do the following things for you: choose a career, make a living, choose a spouse, choose a home, pick a car, clothe your kids, feed your family, decide a house of worship, choose medical care, choose insurance for life, home and health, invest, manage my 401K or SEP/IRA?

I fully realize you would never ask a real poll question, but it would be interesting to see the phenomenal difference, wouldnt it? Please feel free to call if you have any questions.
Very truly yours,
Bump for everyone else who may want to send The Nailer's letter to Zogby.
I think you should start a polling firm and e-mail it to all of the Freepers just to get started.
It's still a free country and we need more right leaning pollers...good luck!
