24. 60% in support of a war? That sounds familiar.

60% of those polled also supported, if necessary, the use of military action to remove Saddam from power which closely mirrored recent polls taken by Time Magazine, CNN, Fox News, USA Today, CBS News, and other news organizations.

Oh right. That's why it sounds familiar. About 50-60% will support any war, at least right at the start of it. Half of those will pretend like they never supported it in the first place once it becomes obvious it was a mistake. So what do we reckon the overlap is between the people that support this and the people that supported the war in Iraq that virtually everyone freely admits is a complete fuckup now?
