Poll Question of the Year?

Imagine all the key questions the Wash Post and ABC could ask in a poll on the presidential race.  Yes,  they do ask many of them.  On the other hand, in the poll released today, we get this:  "Who do you think is more likely to go bungee-jumping?"  Obama "wins" 60%-21%.   Other questions include: "Who would you rather have babysit your children?"  Now, that question, I confess, probably produces a revealing result.  And, yes, Obama tops that one, 49%-36%. 

Still, I'd rather see them revive the once-common question:  Do you believe Obama was born in this country?  Would like to see update from figures not long ago showing at least 4 in 10 Republicans still believed that.
