The 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll

Jan. 31, 2010 Edition: Check Out The Results And Weigh In!

Welcome to the 60 Minutes/ Vanity Fair Poll's first offering for 2010. It contains some deep and probing questions on a myriad of topics ranging from the U.S. Constitution to cyber attacks, influential American writers to role models, qualities employers look for when they're hiring and opportunities to travel back in time as well as look ahead 50 years from now. Here we go!



It's nice to see that Americans still hold some things sacred. Forty-five percent of those asked would make no changes to the Constitution. Some changes were obvious (women's suffrage) and some didn't work (prohibition) but by and large this noble document has served us well. Of the people that would make a change if they could, 20 percent would abolish the Electoral College (too late to help Al Gore). Thirteen percent would lessen the separation between church and state and 11 percent would limit the right to bear arms. Very few people would mess with the presidency.
