I would have loved to have been able to do some “person on the streets” interviews for the high school protests where dozens of kids ditched class and went outside and yelled until the reporters went home.

Or something like:

“Well, my teacher was saying that Chris Christie is really the Anti-Christie, which I don’t really know what that means, but she said that we could do our part to fight the power or something.”

If you had take a poll, I would imagine that the breakdown would have been something like this:
