(Successful) Nuke Poll
As much as I'd like to report some results from my poll about nuclear power, it appears to have only gathered three votes so.... lucky for us the TierneyLab has posted some interesting findings from a new Harris Poll. It appears that age, i.e. whether or not you are old enough to recall Three Mile Island without the use of Wikipedia, does not play the "China Syndrome" role you might expect. Check it out:
From the TeirneyLab: "The level of support increased with the age of respondents - just as it happens to increase with the age of the presidential candidates this year. The only group in the poll that opposes new plants, by a margin of 38 to 35 percent, consisted of people aged 18 to 31." Read the entire post here.
