I have always wondered how people would respond if I went out onto the street and asked if they feel it is important to follow politics. So I did it. I took my “Jay Talking” camera and microphone onto the street and asked the question to pedestrians face to face.
While it is true that polls are inherently flawed because people tend to answer the way they think they should, rather than as they really believe, it is at least nice to see folks pay lip service to the notion that politics is important. There are different levels of political interest, but you may be surprised at the number of respondents that told me that politics impacts their daily life.
