American politics: An honest reflection
  Jan 18, 2008

This poll represents the responses of 1,050 U.S. Citizens ‘who told us they vote’ in U.S. elections and would answer our questions of a “one-minute and thirty second and no longer” poll. This poll was derived from the 1,050 interviews conducted between January 10 and 16, 2008. All interviews were conducted in cities with over 120,000 populations. The margin of error for this poll is 3.86%, 19 times out of 20 @95% competency/confidence. Internally funded advertisement for ROBBINS Sce Research (1998), and Glen P. Robbins, political pollster.

Question #1
Of the following two candidates for President, whom do you prefer?
Mitt Romney    21.17 %
John McCain    20.44 %
Other    57.39 %
Undecided/Can't Answer    16 %
Question #2
As America embarks on ‘a change’ in direction, and with a very popular African American and candidate for President Barack Obama, competing against fellow Democrat Hillary Clinton, a long time advocate for advancement of women’s right’s, don’t you think America should begin to discuss in earnest, its post war development as a fair, modern and democratic civil society?
Yes    63.46 %
No    36.54 %
Undecided/Can’t Answer    21 %
Question #3
In an article in the British Online newspaper the TIMESONLINE, 'The Times' writer Alexandra Freen reveals that schools in the United Kingdom are refusing to teach the history of the Holocaust, a war crime where millions of Jews, Eastern Europeans, and other innocent people were tortured, murdered, and often gassed in crematoriums. These British schools are allegedly bowing to pressure from Muslim parents who do not believe the Holocaust took place. Should the United States ban the teaching of the Holocaust in its history classes?
Yes    07 %
No    93 %
Commentary
Observations/Commentary:
Apparently four out of ten Americans prefer Rupublican Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney or his opponent John McCain, powerful Senator from Arizona (who ran tough against current U.S. President George W. Bush in 2000). (amended to read 2000 and not 2004-GPR).
Observations/Commentary:
Mitt Romney recently delivered big in his home state of Michigan. His messaging looked formidable coming out of that contest. His standard of perfection reminds me of New England Patriot quarterback Tom Brady. I want to see Romney in a political street fight before I evaluate.
John McCain has one heck of a lot of Independents, Black Africans, Latinos, (and) Republicans supporting him. How would you like a granddad who was the toughest guy on the planet? I see Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre being a John McCain type.
There are a very significant number of respondents in the continental United States who answered our push question #2 in the affirmative to demonstrate that the United States can deal with the issue of race and gender equality and ultimately grow through that reflection while continuing to look forward and thus ultimately reassert itself as a democratic authority on earth.
What other country permits such intense self introspection? In the last six weeks the US primaries of both parties is completely changing the American consciousness. The strength of Senator Obama’s showing (he reminds me of Ali), and the fact that finally an Entertainer, a black American, made a significant impact (completely underestimated by press) on moving the direction of American debate back to the people (Oprah Winfrey’s endorsement of Barack Obama) - indicates to me that race is an issue in this election. This issue need not be negative, just truthful.
Hillary and Bill Clinton are absolutely brazen about their passion for winning at politics, and sure they love power. But they also love their country and this is how it works. Hillary Clinton 'as is', is all you need in a person and a candidate, but she will need to explain what happened with her first run at health care in the early 1990’s.
In a September 22, 1993 speech Senator Clinton said:
“Millions of Americans are just a pink slip away from losing their health insurance, and one serious illness away from losing all their savings. Millions more are locked into the jobs they have now just because they or someone in their family has once been sick and they have what is called the preexisting condition. And on any given day, over 37 million Americans -- most of them working people and their little children -- have no health insurance at all. And in spite of all this, our medical bills are growing at over twice the rate of inflation, and the United States spends over a third more of its income on health care than any other nation on Earth.”
American doctors were litigating and the Clinton White House was litigating, and there was maneuvering around the courts, but what happened to the Clinton Health Plan?
In my world, the Holocaust has always been something that we all understood was an awful nightmare, a hideous episode in the life and times of human atrocity on earth.
There is a massive segment of society on earth that does not believe it took place.
Muslim families have three times as many children as North American families.
The Muslim population is growing, and they expect respect. Naturally.
Obviously, American citizens in this ROBBINS poll are about free speech.
We must discuss these serious issues with students of history when they are old enough to discuss it. We must certainly discuss this in the current election for President of the United States. The world is watching.
I do believe that the Holocaust deniers should be permitted to make their case. I don’t get it?
A lot of Canadians are watching American politics right now.
