Do TV ratings depend on telling a meta-story of an America divided into two completely separate cultures or something? Why do they run their polls this way?
Good questions. Because such assumptions aren’t valid.

They have a initiative, Faithful America, that requests the practice of pollsters only asking religious questions to Republican be stopped.
