Outliers

Here’s what I get from this graph:

If, on September 12th, 2001, you would have told a pollster that you did not approve of George Bush? You are in about a 10% minority. I’m in the same minority.

Oh, sure, it’s also the case that Bush’s support is steadily slipping; you can be satisfied to realize that the majority of the country now agrees with your prescient wisdom. But still, I like being reminded now and again exactly how far out to the fringe I am.

    On September 12, 2001, I didn’t approve of Bush’s performance. Now, with a long list of reservations, I do. Guess that makes me doubly stupid!
