It makes one wonder why nobody has done something like this before.

Well, okay, the catholic church tried it in Europe as a part of their counter-reformation attempts to get their act together (and found people similarly oblivious with regard to what they were supposed to believe according to the hierarchy) but you would think that collecting such information on a regular basis would be a veritable goldmine for politicians and spin-doctors. Not to mention the churches themselves.

Unless... no... surely not? Unless most politicians habitually work on their own unexamined ideological prejudices and don't think to check them against reality for fear of self-examination...
