Happy Thanksgiving!

It’s good to pause periodically and remember just how much we to be thankful for in the United States. This year, for me, it’s a time to be especially thankful that my re-entry into the polling world went so smoothly. A special thanks for making that happen goes to my polling partners at HarrisX.

For all the political junkies of the world, Thanksgiving is also a time to remember there is so much more to life than politics. In fact, as I note in my weekly syndicated column, political junkies should appreciate Thanksgiving as a time to learn from those who have a healthier perspective on the proper role of politics in society. Perhaps the most important lesson is that politics and politicians don’t run the nation. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of voters recognize that, in America, culture and technology lead the nation forward, while politics and government lag behind.

Additionally, 65% understand that just about all positive change in America begins outside of the political system, and far from the halls of power in Washington D.C.

Happy Thanksgiving.
