    The creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams, commissioned a survey of economists to see what they thought of the two candidates.
    No, really, he did...it's not a joke.

    Results are here.

    Most interesting, and something we should see more of, is the disclosure of his personal biases (although I'm not sure what impact that would have on the survey) as well as the leanings of the 500 people surveyed.

    Interesting stuff.

    I'll bet none of the "economists who work in the field of education" was named Thomas Sowell or Walter Williams.

    Since he doesn't say they weren't, let's assume they were.

    I don't think CNN would divine an upside to approaching either of them.

    CNN can't abide good information.
