Dumbest. Poll Question. Ever.

From this weeks Public Policy Polling poll of the California Senate Race:

Q7 Do you have a higher opinion of Barbara Boxer’s hair or Carly Fiorina’s hair?
Barbara Boxer’s hair ………………………………… 19%
Carly Fiorina’s hair …………………………………… 14%
Not sure …………………………………………………. 67%

Sigh.

Comments

  1. With a 5 point hair differential, this race is all but over.

  2. Tano says:

    That 67% decline to make a choice is a rare cause for optimism about our fellow citizens.

  3. Brummagem Joe says:

    Most of these issue questions (and what could be more of an issue than these women’s hair) are totally worthless and usually end up with a set of results that are contradictory. That’s why I never pay much attention to them.

  4. Franklin says:

    Agree with Tano.

    Also, it’s borderline sexist to even have such a question. I don’t remember any polls whether Obama or McCain had a bigger dick.
