This is shocking but confirms that many Bush supporters don't know what they're talking about:
"Supporters of President Bush are less knowledgeable about the president's foreign policy positions and are more likely to be mistaken about factual issues in world affairs than voters who back John F. Kerry, a survey released yesterday indicated.
A large majority of self-identified Bush voters polled believe Saddam Hussein provided "substantial support" to Al Qaeda, and 47 percent believe that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction before the US invasion. Among the president's supporters, 57 percent queried think international public opinion favors Bush's reelection, and 51 percent believe that most Islamic countries support "US-led efforts to fight terrorism."
No weapons of mass destruction have been found in Iraq, the Sept. 11 Commission found no evidence of substantial Iraqi support for Al Qaeda, and international public opinion polls have shown widespread opposition to Bush's reelection."
From Divide seen in voter knowledge
Quite an interesting read... I just don't understand why people still believe Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. There were no WMDs found in Iraq, and Bush lied to America to push for his war. In addition, Iraq had no ties to al Qaeda; the September 11 Commission has determined. Yet people are stubborn and unwilling to admit that they were fooled. Sigh.
