Opinion Polls 2.0?

America is a nation obsessed with opinion polls – the recent poll on Iran, the one on electability to name a couple. Thanks to globalization (the other word for export of American culture), India and the the rest of the world is soon following suit (Asia’s sexiest women, generic polls on all and sundry) at an unbelievable pace. This means its time for America to step up and take the lead into the next phase — brain study! The study has already sparked off a controversy.

Irrespective of this controversy and the technicalities of this study, isn’t this kind of study a needless stretch? Time to call for a poll “time out!”
