    FOX News Poll: Nearly 1 in 5 Democrats Say World Will Be Better Off if U.S. Loses War
    Thursday, October 04, 2007

    By Dana Blanton

    NEW YORK — Nearly one out of every five Democrats thinks the world will be better off if America loses the war in Iraq, according to the FOX News Opinion Dynamics Poll released Thursday.

    The percentage of Democrats (19 percent) who believe that is nearly four times the number of Republicans (5 percent) who gave the same answer. Seven percent of independents said the world would be better off if the U.S. lost the war

    Overall, 11 percent of Americans think the world would be "better off" if the U.S. lost the war, and 73 percent disagree.

    Opinion Dynamics Corp. conducted the national telephone poll of 900 registered voters for FOX News from Sept. 25 to Sept. 26. The poll has a 3-point margin of error.

    No, what is bad is that Fox asked such a loaded biased question. It presupposes that the public doesn't think the war is already lost. I would like to have heard the Actual question that was asked, and how many who answered, had to have the question explained or restated,to be able to answer it.

    RSR never actually reads anything... he just likes "spin" that FauxNews likes to give:

    The question:

    Do you personally think the world would would be better off if the United States loses the war in Iraq?
    Yes No (Don't Know)
    25-26 Sept 07 11% 73% 1%
    Democrats 19% 62% 20%
    Republicans 5% 87% 8%
    Independants 7% 76% 17%

    http://www.foxnews.com/projects/pdf/100407_Iraq_prayer_web.pdf

    The actual result is that 87% of Republicans and 62% of Democrats thought the answer was no, which should be adjusted for the margin of error or plus or minus 3%. This is really a non-subject except for the loonies. The more interesting story would have been that 20% of Democrats really don't know the answer... which means they're listening and thinking and don't have any real answers to how this mess should be resolved. That pretty much goes with Gen. Petraeus' response to the question as to whether this war is making us safer. His answer: "I don't know".

    I guess Fox had a slow news day.

    What is wrong Jilly? Hate to see how the kook left base of your party wants the US to lose the war?

    Your party has invested their politcal future in the failure of the US military in Iraq

    How is it a "loaded question"?

    It is well known the moonbat left wants the US to lose in Iraq. Now we have proof

    To parse it a little more....
    19% of Dims think it better if the US loses
    20% don't know the answer....

    So a full 39% of Dims are even more stupid than we have believed in the past in response to the question.....thats pretty telling....
    Thankfully:eusa_pray: ...62% of Dims have at least some common sense.....

    S'matter, dimbulb? Don't like knowing that you're part of the 20% or so of this country that doesn't think Bush is incompetent and shouldn't be trusted with anything more complicated than clearing brush in Crawford?

    My party has been particularly gonad-less in ending this thing. Goes to how you define "loss" and "win". Bush's f-ups haven't left anything other than bad choices.... incompetence which he has kindly left it to others to clean up.

    Keep waving the white flag Jilly - the other symbol of your party. Libs are pissed the Dems have not cut off funding and surrendered in Iraq and it is fun to watch them turn on their own
