Stupid Internet Polls

The Southern Illinoisan has up one of the most presumptive, leading and biased poll questions I’ve seen in a while. And considering we are talking about internet polls, that’s saying something.

I suspect that most of those answering in the affirmative would want to oust Blago regardless of any action on Wrigley Field. Also, just what information is this poll trying to garner? If it’s trying to measure support for the (alleged) state interest in acquisition of Wrigley Field, why doesn’t it just ask that? You know, “Do you support the idea of the State of Illinois acquiring Wrigley Field?” or something. The do you want to dispose of the governor angle seems gratuitous to me.
