This is the sort of thing that just makes me want to pull my hair out. From a poll taken just last week:
"Do you think Saddam Hussein was personally involved in the September 11th, 2001, terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon?"
all adults, 33% said yes
Republicans, 40% said yes
Democrats, 27% said yes
independents, 32% said yes
Gaaaaa!!! How, HOW, can we expect rational policy and meaningful elections when such a large segment of the population is so grossly ill-informed? I don't know which worries me more, that 4 out of 10 Republicans thought so or that even a quarter of Democrats did. I'd love to see the breakdown on answers vs. where people get their their news. We're doomed.
First question that should be asked and confirmed is do you vote if the answer is no who cares what they think.

i think it might be best they do not vote since they dont know what the hell is going on. an ignorant vote is not better than no vote at all.
All despite the fact that the good General Petraeus put the kibosh to the canard.
