Cheers and Jeers: Wednesday

3 3 15


Well, 2022 is hurtling down the tracks at a brisk enough pace. The second quarter is now behind us, and that means it's C&J number-crunching time. Every few months we post the results of some recent C&J polls to give you a snapshot of what Kossacks think about this ‘n that. For example...

» When the Census Bureau announced in April it was doing a massive data dump from the 1950s, 26 percent of you said you would access it to look for info about your family history.

» When we asked about Jen Psaki’s job performance in her final days as White House Press Secretary, 96 percent rated her “excellent."

» Apparently outgoing Rep. Madison Cawthorn (The Cult-NC) wasn’t joking. One-in-four of you say you’ve had to call the cops to complain about the noise from a late-night Republican cocaine orgy in your neighborhood.


» When asked "How would you grade your public school education," 45 percent gave theirs an A, 34 percent a B, and 8 percent a C. 10 percent didn’t attend public schools.

» Ukraine coverage and analysis: a whopping 93 percent of you prefer the reports from Daily Kos stalwarts Markos, Mark Sumner, and Hunter versus the traditional media’s.

» In terms of marijuana consumption, 16 percent use wacky tobaccy frequently, 15 percent occasionally.

» Lukewarm response to president Biden’s proposed gas tax holiday. 42 percent support, while 40 percent don’t.

» Support among the Daily Kos community for a ban on assault weapons? 98 percent. raising the age to buy a gun to 21? Also 98 percent.

» Daily Kos turned 20 in May. 53 percent of you have been coming here for over 10 years. (26 percent for over 15 years.)

» On Third Shift Workers Day, we asked if you'd ever worked an overnight job. 60 percent said yes.

» Now that Democrats are in the majority on the Postal Board, 99 percent of you still want postmaster Louis DeJoy fired. (As of today, he remains un-fired. Anyone know why?)

As always, thanks for participating in our polls. And please: use your super-human brain power responsibly. For good, not evil. Except, of course, on National Use Your Super-Human Brain Power For Evil Day.

And now, our feature presentation…


Cheers and Jeers for Wednesday, July 6, 2022
