60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll: November Edition

Check out the results and weigh in!

Welcome to the 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll for November. Well it's finally here. On November 6th we will elect a president for the next four years. The level of partisanship and rancor in this election has rarely been higher nor have the stakes.

It's a messy business, Churchill was said to have stated that "democracy is the worst form of government except all the others." Whoever wins will need to heal our divisions and bring us together to face issues and problems that we have put off for too long. Leave it to the genius of America that we have two holidays in November that can unite us and help with that healing. President Kennedy said, "the cost of freedom is always high, but Americans have always paid it." Our leaders may occasionally fail us, but our soldiers never do. On Veteran's Day we can come together as one nation to remember their sacrifice. And finally there is Thanksgiving, perhaps our best holiday. It is solemn yet joyous, sacred yet non denominational. It is a day when every American can give thanks in their own way. What better example of freedom is there than that? To all of our readers, Happy Thanksgiving, and now the results of our poll....

Americans are fairly evenly divided on this question. Forty-six percent would choose the convenience of living within 100 yards of their work place while 51 percent would not. With the hassle and expense of commuting on the rise, and the work/live movement in urban areas gaining traction, that small majority may not last much longer.
