I’ll post the results tomorrow evening.
Who ya got?
Hey guys, for those who may not know, I manage SNY’s Tumblr. And this week we surpassed 80k followers. I am completely FLOORED by that number. To those of you who follow me here on ‘Mutt, and on SNY, I can’t thank you enough!
If you have an opinion on Sunday’s big game, and who doesn’t, please respond to the question.
Also, if you don’t follow SNY on Tumblr—but of course I’m being silly—please give it a look-see. It’s mostly NY sports-centric but it also has a national sports mix, and of course, we don’t shy away from memes—this is the Internet after all.
A new Gallup poll shows sentiment on the legality of same-sex marriage is close, with 50% of people surveyed in favor of the law recognizing same-sex marriages as valid, while 48% of those surveyed think it should not be valid.
The poll shows, politically, the most support for same-sex marriage comes from those who identify as Democrats. Most who identify as Republicans came out in opposition to same-sex marriage. [REUTERS]

Complete poll results here
For years, pundits and politicians on the left have been calling themselves “progressives” to avoid the apparent stigma of the word “liberal.” But a USA Today/Gallup poll released today indicates that a majority of Americans still aren’t sure what “progressive” really means.
According to the poll, 54% percent of adults are unsure if the word “progressive” describes their political views. Fifty-seven percent of self-identified liberals, 65% of moderates, and 45% of conservatives just don’t know if the word aptly characterizes their political outlook.”
“Overall, 62 percent of those polled back new, tougher federal regulations on the way banks and other financial institutions conduct their business, but that’s down from 76 percent a year ago.”
huh? wha? down 14 points?
I point those of you who have changed your minds to this quote from Paul Krugman:
"…And so it is with finance. Those who think that “too big to fail” is the essence of the problem have to explain why Canada, with basically just five banks, has avoided crisis…
So what’s Canada’s secret? Regulation, regulation, regulation.”
