Politico-

Quote
While 38 percent said yes when asked, In Michigan, do you think the trees are the right height, or not?, and 8 percent said no, 55 percent said they were not sure.

For those who really want to get into the weeds (or is it roots?) on this question, the crosstabs revealed that more Obama supporters believed in the perfection of Michigan trees: 44 percent of those who backed Obama in 2008 also backed the height of Michigan trees as compared to 27 percent for McCain supporters.

The poll has some other interesting results: Only 24 percent of voters think of Romney, who was raised in the state, as a Michigander, versus 65 percent who do not. And the polling firm tweeted out another tidbit (not in the poll): Eminem has a better net favorability in Michigan than Mitt Romney.

Quote from:   Martha Gellhorn for The Atlantic 1961
The unique misfortune of the Palestinian refugees is that they are a weapon in what seems to be a permanent war...today, in the Middle East, you get a repeated sinking sensation about the Palestinian refugees: they are only a beginning, not an end. Their function is to hang around and be constantly useful as a goad. The ultimate aim is not such humane small potatoes as repatriating refugees.

They should have a poll of people in Humboldt County, California on this. How do you think the results would be of the following answers?

1 Michigan's trees are puny, our redwoods are the right height
2. Michigan's trees are about right
3. Michigan's trees are so tall, man
4. I'm smoking tree right now

Quite a useless poll question. Instead of asking crap like this, they could have asked:

"If the 2016 general election were held today, how would you vote between Cuomo, the Democrat, and McDonnell, the Republican ?"

I'd much rather see polls like this done than anything like that.
