Reality and what Bush supporters believe

New poll by the U of Maryland was published.

Some "surprises" include (I put Kerry supporter numbers in the brackets following each breakdown):

IRAQ:
20% of Bush supporters believe Iraq was directly involved in 9/11. (8%)

Another 55% of them believe Iraq provided substantial aid to Al-Qaeda. (22%)

WHAT 9/11 COMMISSION CONCLUDED:

13% believe the commission concluded that Iraq was directly involved in 9/11. (7%)

43% believe the commission concluded that Iraq provided substantial aid to Al-Qaeda. (20%)

GLOBAL PUBLIC OPINION ON IRAQ:

26% feel that the majority of the global public favoured the invasion. (5%)

42% feel that the global public was evenly divided regarding the invasion. (20%)

31% feel that the majority of the global public opposed the invasion. (74%)

GLOBAL PUBLIC OPINION ON US ELECTION:

57% believe that the majority of the global community supports Bush re-election. (1%)

33% believe the global community is divided on the US election. (30%)

9% believe that the majority of the global community supports the election of John Kerry. (69%)

HOW WELL INFORMED SUPPORTERS ARE OF THEIR CANDIDATE'S ISSUES:

The majority of Bush supporters is wrong on believing:

That Bush supports the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty (69%).

That Bush supports the Kyoto Accord (51%).

That Bush supports the Land Mine Treaty (72%).

That Bush supports including labour and environmental standards in agreements regulating trade (74%).

The majority of Kerry suporters was CORRECT in all these instances regarding their candidate's position.

-------

Grim.

I do wonder if I were to do such polls on Kerry or Nader supporters the results that I would get. Questions like:

- Do you believe that Bush knew about September 11 in advance.
- Did Iraq ever kill an American citizen.
- Did Iraq sponser terrorism
- Do the majority of Iraqi's want the US in Iraq
- Are most Iraqi's somewhat or much better off after the invasion.
- Is "Al Qaeda" the principle threat to the United States
- Are the terror warnings politically motivated.
- Does the US support Israel too much.
- Do you believe that there will be another draft.

I suspect that one could get some interesting results. There are ignorant people who support President Bush, there are misinformed people who support President Bush, but this does not mean that all people who support President Bush are ignorant or misinformed.

Are you saying he knew there would be an attack?

LOL.

Problem is most of your question are pointed and can't be measured.

They can be answered yes or no and they can be supported using statistics, history and statements, except for the US support for Israel one.

How can you answer whether terror warnings are politically motivated and measure that against the "truth"? Like Karl Rove's gonna say yes.

- Do you believe that Bush knew about September 11 in advance.

There is a picture of him sitting behind his desk in the whitehouse.

On the desk is a calendar with the month of September on it. The 11 is clearly visable.

1. This will never be answered 100% honestly. Do we know he had some type of warning? Yes. But it's a loaded question.

2. What about other countries...once again loaded.

3. Loaded, but this wasn't what was claimed. You're confusing the issues.

4. Could be measured but doesn't really answer any questions. Does Africa want our help? Anyone else out there?

5. Are we speaking as of right now?

6. How will this be measured?

7. How will this be measured?

8. Once again...measure.

9. This is probably the most loaded question. No one is claiming that either politician wants a draft. That's just ridiculous. The quesion is will we be prepared if something beyond our vision happens in the next few months?

How do you know what he is gonna say? Do you read minds; or are you just that partisan that you think you can?

interesting that they could, indeed, figure out what Kerry's position was at all.
