Pollsters should be going into every state where Republican senators are up for re-election in 2008. They should be asking whether voters want the US out of Iraq. They should be asking in those states and nationwide how people feel about Bush's Iran plans.

Should Bush attack Iran?

Do they believe Bush and his administration when they say they have no plans to attack Iran. How many people think Bush and his people are lying on Iran?

The Republicans think it is a good strategy to force the Dems to oppose funding the troops. What do constituents say in the states where Republican senators will be vulnerable in 2008? What about everywhere else?

POllsters should be asking: "Do you support reducing the funds to the military as a way of preventing Bush from escalating the war?"

Americans' confidence in Bush and Cheney has dropped so low, it is time for the pollsters to begin routinely asking about impeachment. Pelosi took it off the table. The media could put it back on the table. It's time they let the public speak through the voice of the polls.

They should be asking about the military leaders who have not been held accountable-- lying failures like TOmmy Franks. Pollsters should be asking whether anyone believes that Bush follows the advice of the Generals or replaces them. That dog doesn't hunt anymore.

America is facing a healthcare crisis. Pollsters should be asking about single payer universal health care.

We are seeing our national industries whittled away and jobs lost by the tens of thousands due to globalization. Pollsters should be asking questions about allowing products produced by cheap, even slave labor entering our country unregulated, not just about unregulated immigrants.

Pollsters are paid by the mainstream media-- you know, the ones who spend hundreds of hours on Anna Nicole Smith. It's time they start asking the right questions. The future of America depends upon it.

Progressive media and bloggers have taken the lead in the past with polling. If the mainstream media don't do it, then it may fall to alternative media and bloggers. If it comes to that, the job will get done, one way or another. But if the MSM fail to do the job, it's one more reason to start taking back the airwaves from them, starting with giving all legitimate candidates free air time. That's the way to take the big money out of campaign costs.
