JStreet Again Misrepresenting Poll Data
JStreet explains its name as follows:
What's the name mean? Well, if you walk north from the Mall, Washington DC's streets ascend in alphabetical order. That is, until you get to I street, which is followed somewhat mysteriously by K Street . . .
J street is a fitting metaphor for all the things that should be in the nation's capital but aren't: voices that are marginalized or ignored, ideas deemed too radical or politically unpopular to garner note, movements that are elided or dismissed.
The pioneering JStreet is similarly undaunted by the lack of polling data which supports its political positions. What to do when the numbers don't match the mission? Make 'em up.
