Bush Does Better With College Students

Bush Does Better With College Students

It figures. I tried to take some classes and perhaps go on for a masters..

Fuck that, I felt like I was in class with a bunch of first graders.

Maybe the draft will wake the young ones up.

most of the students at my university are a rather self-absorbed, apathetic bunch.

i'd be shocked if more than 80% of them could find iraq and afghanistan on a map.

They should have polled UCSC (University of California at Santa Cruz). I bet the pools would have been dropped quite a bit.

So it seems this current bunch of college students is a bit smarter than the last several.

Perhaps there is hope.

We are a pretty liberal school here at UCSB. I can be sure we didnt add to that horrible statistic.

We can be sure NO Cali School added to that horrible statistic. Well, maybe some "christian" college did.

i think its something to do with being close to nature yet not in the boonies that makes a lot of west coasters more relaxed about money and not selfish conservatives

TaoTeChing,

Ive always been amazed by people who can live in the beauty of a great deal of cali (okay, stockton, I can understand that) and be a selfish conservative.

Nature puts it all in perspective for me.

I'm surprised at how many people can be selfish liberals.

This poll was done by Harvard University and so it is unlikely that it was methodologically flawed, but I feel that to obtain a real reprentative sample of college students would require more than the the thousand people they sampled.
Mathematically speaking 1000 people *randomly* surveyed out of a population of the 12 million undergraduate students(census.gov) should be sufficient. I question whether a random sample can be obtained in a national survey of college students, given that this was probably conducted by telephone based on a list of land-line, listed phone numbers. Phone numbers of students who live in dorms would not be listed in this manner and the growing number of students who have a cellphone only would also be excluded. And when I was in college I never lived in one place for more than a year, often not long enough for my number to be listed. So, who are the students they actually talked to? Probably a disproportionately high percentage of students who reside in a permanent residence: students living with their parents and older students. I'm not going to take the time to read the whole study, but it is very likely that they did not compensate for this fact and much different results may have been obtained if they did.
But whether the methodology is flawed or not, these results don't surprise me all that much. You're right Mushmaster, college students as a whole do seem to be overall quite a self-absorbed and apathetic bunch. Unaware of whats going on away from campus and with an apathy that breads acceptance of the status quo.

A 'selfish liberal' is kind of like a fundamentalist Buddhist.

Bush is in favor of the draft? I thought that was a Democrat thing.
