It's being reported as a "Republicans are dumb" story, but in reality it seems like a dumb polling story to me. The only 3 possible answers are "yes," "no," and "I don't know," none of which are exactly correct. I know I'd screw with the pollster given that question myself.
This is illustrated by the fact that 36% of Democrats said they oppose bombing Agrabah.
But analysis is not Freepers' strong suit. A few seem to realize this is an uncommonly dumb poll. But many others just reflexively retreat to their usual partisan reflexes, thereby proving that they are indeed as dumb as this poll implies:
doc1019 has clearly only read the headline:
Bomb Mecca first ... might take some of the steam out of the militant islamists.sten doesn't care how dumb his fellows seem, so long as he can construct strawman Democrats that are worse:
that’s ok...cashless blames schools fpr educating people who knee-jerk hate Muslims:
meanwhile, democrat LEADERSHIP is pushing support for muslims and sharia
i wonder how their feminist base feels about that
We have these polls because dupes, like suckers, are born every minute, just like PT Barnum said and the American educational system excels in reinforcing fantasy and revisionism vs. truth and reality.FlingWingFlyer thinks maybe they polled only those dumb liberal Republicans!
Basically, I am not shocked.
[T]hey could have polled the “republicans” on their mailing list. You know, the “republicans” who are veterans of the Iraq war, voted for Bush, TWICE and drive a “Honda” Prius.
