NC Governor Turns to "King of the Hill" Fans For Polling

Makes sense, sorta:

Gov. Mike Easley has turned his affection for Fox TV's animated show, "King of the Hill," into a target group in his polls.

Easley, who views the show's main character as a man devoid of party label, asked his pollster several years ago to separate "King of the Hill" viewers in poll results in order to use them as a political barometer.

"What happens in the show is, the wrestling (with issues) manifests itself in the gray area," Easley said Friday. "He thinks he has the answer but there's a little different spin on it. Maybe it affects him personally or his friends."


Easley's poll asked voters if they watched "King of the Hill." Viewers tended to be non-college educated white males, a group that Democrats overwhelmingly lose _ except for Easley. His pollster, Fred Yang, fielded surveys last year showing top Democratic candidates losing 3-to-1 among the "Hill" fans, but Easley capturing more than 40 percent of those in the survey.

The Democrats have offered up a lot of silly solutions for their political problems, and this seems the least silly of the lot so far.

Next: Governor Bill Richardson hires "Brian" from Family Guy as a consultant.

Via Fark.

Bonus Parody: John from Wuzzadem presents the King of the Hill characters discussing that "eye-talian" reporter/kidnap victim and the supposed attempt to kill her.
