    OMG! That's just hilarious. Very, very good.
    God Bless the Onion.

    Ahhhh, I love man on the street interviews! I must admit, though, that the ones about basic facts are much funnier than the political ones, but this one was still good.

    I very much doubt that those voters are in fact "pro life" or against stem cell research, or even want the war to go on indefinitely, but rather that they were following the lead of the interviewer. Let's face it, he did not ask neutral questions in a neutral way. They were intended to sway the individuals to give an answer that they might not have given if asked in a different way.

    Now the original Onion video was hilarious. I really did laugh out loud. :)

    If it were you being interviewed, you'd have caught those questions, regardless of the fact that they were leading. I can't tell you how many times I've run across this exact same phenomenon leading up to the election.

    Well yes, but then I am a political science major with only one semester left in college. I'm clearly not part of the average population.
    Remember, we're seeing cherry-picked results. I'm sure most people corrected him, but they didn't make the cut because that wouldn't sell advertising time.

    That was good.

    Unbelievable.

    I didn't realize that it was between Obama/Palin and McCain/Biden.

    Awesome.

    Someone is going to be disappointed.
