Everyone’s attention is currently focused on the presidential polls leading up to the 2008 election, but there are far more interesting national polls to study.

And that individuals who purchase over three pairs of sneakers a year are 61% more likely to have the qualities of a modern leader?

Those national polls are far more interesting than political ones.

There are a few national polls and studies in here that are somewhat relevant to politics. Last year, researchers discovered that music pirates haven’t impacted CD sales the way the RIAA once thought. And this summer, we learned that the brains of homosexual men are similar in size to a female’s brain, while heterosexual men and lesbian women’s brains closely correspond in size.
