A Nation of ..

I was on CNN this morning and saw a poll asking "If you had the chance, would you want to go to the Olympics in Beijing?". I thought to myself, "If someone gave me a ticket and said go to China and watch the best athletes in the world perform, would I go? Well yeah I would go, in a hearbeat." So, doing something I don't normally do I clicked yes and then submitted my vote. Then I saw the results.

Votes 31% -Yes 69%-No

You are kidding me! 69% of readers would not want to go to the Olympics if they had the chance. I know the poll isn't scientific, but still, I would expect at least a 50/50 split on this. Do people really thing that by not going to the Olympics we are really going to change the Chinese government?
