Voices of the people

by Cem Basman

According to the world’s largest ever organized public opinion poll, the 1999 Gallup International sponsored and conducted Millennium Survey of 57,000 adults in 60 countries, as it was quoted in the Millennium Report of the UN in March 2000, the global survey delivered among other results an astonishing fact:

In most countries the majority said their elections were free and fair.

Despite this, two thirds of all respondents considered that their country was not governed by the will of the people. This opinion held even in some of the oldest democracies in the world.

Uh? I have two theories about this:

Theory 1: You dumb.
Theory 2: They clever.
