My 20/20 segment – or at least part of it – is already up on Youtube.  The title: “Should Some People Not Vote.”  It would have been nice to get more airtime, but it’s an honor just meeting Stossel and being on his show. 

I only wish they’d used my favorite sound bite, which went something like this: “Before I studied public opinion, I wondered why our policies were so bad.  After I studied public opinion, I started wondering why our policies weren’t worse.  An important part of the answer is that the people who know less are less likely to vote.”

Alternate version: “When you watch the presidential debates, you may think that the candidates are pandering to the Lowest Common Denominator.  If everyone voted, though, they’d be pandering to a much lower Lowest Common Denominator.”
