Public cynicism

The CNN website has a daily "quick vote" instant poll. Today the question was, "Do you think anti-war protests have an effect on world leaders?" Sadly, here are the results:

Yes - 33%
No - 67%

It is simply tragic that so many people think it will not make any difference at all if we take to the streets. And, of course, Diebold now "delivers" the vote for Republicans. So, if the 67% are right, it means the people have been utterly disempowered.
