63 Percent of Republicans Still Think Saddam Hussein Had WMD
We can thank Fox “News” for this:
How misinformed are Republicans about world affairs? If presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s assertion that Russia is “without question our number one geopolitical foe” is any indication, then the answer would appear to be very.
A new poll supports that theory.
The poll, constructed by Dartmouth government professor Benjamin Valentino and conducted by YouGov from April 26 to May 2, found that fully 63 percent of Republican respondents still believed that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction when the U.S. invaded in 2003. By contrast, 27 percent of independents and 15 percent of Democrats shared that view.
“By contrast, 27 percent of independents and 15 percent of Democrats shared that view?” Those are pretty darn high numbers too given that that lie has been thoroughly debunked.
