Lies, lies, stats

Last night on TV, the reporterette for NBC that covers the White House said that polls show 65% of Americans approve of going to war against Iraq and 61% say we should go right now. But, she added, that’s a “soft” 65% since 30-40% don’t think we should go. What?

Yeah, I can do the math. If 65% say Yes, then it stands to reason that 35% or less are saying No. Just an attempt to spin the strong support for the president to make it look bad. Of course, once this is all over everyone will remember having been for the war in the first place. Just think, do you ever meet anyone who tells you they were against the Gulf War? Yet, a similar percentage opposed that one, too.
