no it didn't ask about fidelity. It asked if you have a favorable opinion or not.
Probably because I didn't make that claim?
I am merely pointing out that the link you posted is hardly the end all, be all that you seem to think that it is.
I agreed with a comment saying the poll meant nothing and added a bit for the emotional (most likely liberal) to think about.
It appears to have worked. And I suspect you know why...
It is possible that people were reflecting on MLK as a person and not as a civil rights figure, since that would make him comparable to Paula Deen as a person and not a celebrity chef. MLK was no saint in his personal life--he did as much skirt-chasing as JFK did, so as a preacher, he appeared to be somewhat hypocritical about that.
No surprise, its Georgia.
Seems rather off the wall tho. Why not compare Deen to Nixon, see how that goes.
right. when you think about MLK, it's not about his impact on civil rights in this country. I mean, who would consider that?
same with Thomas Jefferson, the whole Declaration of Independence, founding the country stuff means nothing compared to whether or not he had sex with Sally Hemings. right?
He should be applauded for his civil rights accomplishments. However that should not negate the way he treated those he was closest to...
Well if you are saying to me that it doesn't prove anything, then offer up some proof that politifact is wrong. Otherwise you are just balking.
Like I said, I have no idea one way or another but politifact does seem to be the only entity that really tried to make a determination.
This would be a good time to quote river's usual response, but I won't.
They've been criticized for a little hanky panky in the past but you're right, they're not bad at polling.
I've never seen anything like what PPP does coming from the right, but yeah there would be all sorts of possibilities. A poll of CA Dems on Abe Lincoln vs. Che Guevara might have interesting results. Either that or: "More evil -GWB or Stalin/Hitler/Pol Pot/whoever?" :laugh:
let me know when you reject Ronald Reagan ...
Ohh, yes there was. You see it on this thread. The reason is to feel morally superior.
I love how the party of tolerance, diversity, and non-judgement, demands an opinion of MLK.
Boy, I guess you got the Republicans on this one old!
right. it asked questions about 15 people. how dare one of them be Martin Luther King Jr.! Especially in Georgia, of all places!!!
