A great article in the Wall Street Journal about “uber-poller” Scott Rasmussen… and interesting approach he takes:
…a significant division among the American public that he has tracked for the past few years—a division between what he calls the Mainstream Public and the Political Class.
To figure out where people are, he asks three questions: Whose judgment do you trust more: that of the American people or America’s political leaders? Has the federal government become its own special interest group? Do government and big business often work together in ways that hurt consumers and investors? Those who identify with the government on two or more questions are defined as the political class.
