I randomly get emails to take Zogby's Interactive Poll and just got this question:
If the election for President of the United States were held today and the only candidates were Democrat Barack Obama and Republican Scott Brown, for whom would you vote?
My god, what in the hell is wrong with the media that anyone could possibly imagine this to be a legitimate question? Had this been one of many similar questions positing different Republican opponents against Obama, this would have been silly. But Brown was the only match-up they asked about, as if he's some magical Republican hero now that he won a special election against a lousy opponent. Perspective really isn't the media's strong suit.
