35%? I’m Surprised It’s That Low July 1, 2015Posted by geoff in News.
It’s an online poll conducted by a trendy online service, so the results are likely to be seriously skewed, but:
A recent online poll of more than 2,000 adults by TransferWise, a peer-to-peer money transfer service based in the United Kingdom, revealed that 35 percent of American-born residents and emigrants would consider leaving the United States to live in another country.
They never ask the right questions in these polls, because while many of us are seriously unhappy the direction of the United States, there aren’t really any places to go that offer more conservative values. A better question would be, “Assuming technology, medicine, and science were equal, which decade of the United States would you most like to live in?”
That is, culturally, legally, and economically, where’s your sweet spot in US history?
