  1. Where did that statement (implying that 40% constitutes a majority) actually appear in print? Can anyone identify the newspaper and date?

    Let’s discuss “FAIL”… as in failure to comprehend why 40% can constitute a majority in comparison to the percentage that “somewhat dislikes”, “neutral”, “somewhat likes”, etc. That figure is nearly identical to the percentage of Americans that are willfully ignorant of just about everything, and proud of it. Coincidence? I think not.
