poll this!!

I am sick and tired of the ridiculous polls that are being done about the presidential election.
Case and point:

"Poll: People prefer Obama over McCain as teacher
By ALAN FRAM, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) — If this election were about which candidate people wanted as their child's schoolteacher, Barack Obama would be moving to the head of the class. They'd also rather watch a football game with him, but only by inches."

My question... who freaking cares! They are not in a contest for most likable teacher of football buddy, they are in an election to become the president of the United States. Someone should fire this pollster (and the AP guy who is stupid enough to write about it) and hire someone that will ask some real questions! Maybe a poll on ideas to reverse the nosedive our economy is in right now.
Sheesh!!

I am also tired of hearing what the candidates say about each other. I want to hear what they have to say about the real issues: this war, the economy, our dependence on oil, etc. I feel too much time is spent on clever sound bites knocking each other down and not addressing the stuff that affects the rest of us!
