Dang. In polls trying to figure how many Americans are cat lovers and how many are dog lovers, dogs have been edging up in popularity, though it has remained pretty close. But a new poll shows we are overwhelmingly -- and I mean overwhelmingly -- dog lovers, by more than 30 points if you can believe it:
I thought there’d be a stronger feline showing among both Dems and women. Nope. Both top out at 26 percent. In a world of partisan gaps and gender gaps, the population errs on this one uniformly.
In fact, unless I missed something in PPP’s crosstabs, there’s only one demographic that puts cats within double digits of dogs. It’s landslide after landslide when testing for sex, race, ideology, geography, even vegan/vegetarianism. Only one group makes a contest of it. The free-thinkers, the contrarians — the young adults.
Via Allahpundit at Hot Air, who expresses my sentiments exactly: I can accept defeat on this question, but I can't accept a landslide. I think cat lovers should demand a recount and see if the results can be replicated. Personally I think the fix was in. Bet the poll was conducted by a bunch of dog-loving sociopaths.
