Where's the Real Polling?

I must admit I'm not much a fan of polls, I do believe they have an influence in shaping the debate.

The questions asked often end up laying out what's on the table for discussion rather than interpreting what's being discussed.

As a result some large and significant issues don't get addressed.

Looking at the issues going on in the markets these days it really is amazing that we don't see them being raised in the polls on discussed in the interchange.

What kind of issues might voters be concerned about?

Corporate crime and influence
Government accountability
The lack of party distinction
The rapidly growing national debt
The secretisizing of government
Denial of due process and habeus corpus
Expansion of government to spy on Americans.

These all very much could be issues if people were able to voice their reall concerns.
