The Week In Politics: Chicken, Polls, And Smartphone Apps

Aug 13, 2012

We heard a lot about chicken last week regarding the Chick-Fil-A and gay marriage. So, in response to that controversy, Public Policy Polling conducted a poll on chicken. The poll found that Chick-Fil-A is North Carolina's favorite fast-food chicken restaurant. It's preferred by 40 percent of voters. KFC is second at 23 percent, followed by Bojangles at 18 percent.

And, yes, there is an ideological split. Conservatives prefer Chick-Fil-A. Liberals prefer KFC.

Political analyst, J. Michael Blitzer, who's never chicken, joined Morning Edition host Duncan McFadyen to talk polls.
