Wanted: Better Polls

A new Gallup poll finds that Americans are most worried about terrorism, the debt, and health care costs. Avent sighs:

We don't need polls asking what the public thinks is a "top threat". We need polls that lay out some realistic choices, and ask the public what it wants to do about them. We have to start structuring our political conversation to lead towards solutions, not to throw back an ever-amplifying reflection of the country's inchoate frustration.
