    Problem is that this poll does not "prove" that the righteous American people are sick of the lies Chimpsuit McHitlerburton and are on the verge of GLORIOUS REVOLUTION. Actually it runs directly counter to the Dems claims that their bleating actually helps morale because the stupid hayseed hicks who joined the military because they are misguidedly nostalgic at best and jingoisic nutcases at worst need to be brought home for their own good.

    its all in the question and sample selection even the example you gave.

    Being able to manipulate em myself I dont give much credit to polls
    Straight answers can be manipulated as good.

    Dont get me wrong I assume this example might be true, and would
    make sense but I would try not to use it in discussions. Maybe
    I am allergic these days to polling


    When you take polls seriously you have to advocate a dictatorship. Most
    people dont know anything. Especially when 70% of the idiots couldnt
    find Iraq on a map. I could care less what their opinion about the war is.

    You guys did a trick on me, I am ready to start my own dictatorship. :bat:

    I agree. Polls still worthless. Why else would you have exit polls say 80% Kerry landslide with a 53 to 47 Bush victory? Polls are worthless unless they are an official vote from the people. ALL the people.
