Lies, Damn Lies, and Polls

The Washington Post: "Budget worries, trust on economy – A growing number of Americans offer the federal budget as the most important national problem in a new Gallup poll. Fully 17 percent name this as the top problem, the highest level in 15 years." Notice the spin? It suggests the budget is top of mind for Americans. Except it's not. Some 83% of respondents (a number never mentioned) do not rank it as the #1 issue. And the press wonders why folks don't trust it.
