    Should President Obama be allowed to do a nationwide address to school children without parental consent?


    Yes: 121,126 (41.8%)

    No: 157,280 (54.3%)

    I don't care: 11,418 (3.9%)


    That's quite a few people in that poll.

    Facebook polls have as much meaning as words written on a wall in urine.

    Facebook is an good source for scholarly information, statistics and surveys such as this one. It should be taken very seriously.

    Parents can opt their children out, so that is not the issue.

    The issue is that the Prez is going to make the stoopidcons look even stoopider.

    I agree, it sure isn't scientific at all, and can't be considered reliable.
    But I bet it is a fairly good cross section of the population.

    Maybe some posters on here can start using it to back up their facts, and link to it too!
