<nettime> Pull the other Poll


Remember that odd percentage of Americans who believed the 9/11 jets were
loaded with _Iraqi_ terrorists? Well here's that same crowd polled again
about WMD. Time for a modem giveaway before 2004, perhaps?

Many Americans Unaware WMD Have Not Been Found

http://pipa.org/whatsnew/html/new_6_04_03.html

A striking finding in the new PIPA/Knowledge
Networks poll is that many Americans are unaware that
weapons of mass destruction have not been found in Iraq.
While 59% of those polled correctly said the US has
not found Iraqi weapons of mass destruction, 41% said
they believed that the US has found such weapons (34%)
or were unsure (7%)...

...Another widespread misperception is that Iraq actually
used chemical or biological weapons in the war. Twenty-two
percent held this misperception, with 9% being unsure,
while 69% correctly said that Iraq had not used such
weapons.
