Yesterday, we took an informal street poll around Rittenhouse Square, and pinned down about 50 passersby for four easy questions with yes or no answers. Here are the results, along with a few of our favorite quotes from respondents.
Will the Phillies win the World Series this year?
Yes: 23.4% (“That’s a toss-up. Maybe. Hopefully.”)
No: 76.6% (“I’d like to say yes, but no.”)
Are you excited for the NFL draft this week?
Yes: 27.7% (“Very much so!”)
No: 72.3% (“Honestly, I’m not a football fan.”)
Do you know who won the Democratic primary for attorney general?
Yes: 21.3% (“Kane won, surprisingly.”)
No: 78.7% (“Not my boy Patrick Murphy. I don’t know the other guy.”) For the record, the “other guy” was actually a woman named Kathleen Kane, who was referenced by multiple people as “The Lady Kane.”
Did you vote Tuesday?
Note: We may be apathetic, but at least we’re sheepish about it: Almost everyone apologized for not voting.
