More on Polls

NBC is reporting a poll it did with the WSJ, and one of the questions is: "Does the President deserve to be re-elected?" What a horrible, useless, question. The answer is necessarily "No" for any value of "President." Nobody deserves to be re-elected. Only someone who has been re-elected deserves to have been re-elected.

The question makes no sense whatsoever. It's like asking if someone deserves to win a football game. Ask me after the game; if they won, they deserved it. If they lost, they didn't.
