Poll: Americans See Gloom, Doom in 2007
The Bellingham Herald included an article about a year end poll provided by AP. You know the often lame and sometimes humorous types. Here are a few cuts:
Another terrorist attack, a warmer planet, death and destruction from a natural disaster. These are among Americans’ grim predictions for the United States in 2007.
One in four, 25 percent, anticipates the second coming of Jesus Christ.
With 1 in 4 respondents expecting Christ return next year, I had some serious concerns about just who was doing the polling and who was being polled.
The telephone poll of 1,000 adults was conducted Dec. 12-14 by Ipsos, an international polling firm. The margin of sampling error was plus or minus three percentage points
Ipsos is an international polling headquartered in France, but information about this AP poll is not available yet. I’ll be looking back for the details, but in the meantime you might want to check out these polls.
