0% almost never appears in public polls

The National Economy
No Americans say that the national economy is getting better, 13% say it is staying the same, and 82% say the national economy is getting worse.

Sep 2008 13% 82% 5%
Aug 2008 18% 19% 60% 3%
Jul 2008 3% 20% 76% 1%

You almost never see 0% in public polls. They must not have any BOA executives, gold stock holders, or other speculators who bet the right way in their poll.  Or maybe those folks see that their immediate gain comes with the risk of financial downturn for all?

And Bush’s approval is down to 19% among RVs in the same poll.  That has to be some kind of record?
