A Well-Informed Electorate

A just-released Harris Interactive poll reveals that significant numbers of Americans still believe that:

  • Saddam Hussein had strong ties with Al Qaeda (41%).
  • Saddam Hussein helped to plan and supported the 9/11 attacks (47% last February; 22% now).
  • Iraq had weapons of mass destruction at the time of the U.S. invasion (36% last February; 26% now).

And arguably the best of all:

  • Several of the 9/11 hijackers were Iraqis (44% of those polled believed this as of last February; 24% still believe it today).

Via Altercation.
