Depressing Polls

Britain: just resigned police state advocate Interior Minister David Blunkett got 67% job satisfaction and 61% would approve a comeback.

USA: While headlines say "majority now against the war", the answer depends on the question asked - the truth is in the fourth question of the 16-19 December ABC News/Washington Post poll, an unchanged 58% behind staying the course.

I wouldn't read too much into question four: it's hopelessly loaded. The bias is towards the assumption that US troops are, in fact, contributing to "stability" in Iraq - "do you want stability, like the troops bring, or anarchy and bloodshed?" would be a fair enough reworking. What's quite remarkable is that even when presented like this, 2/5 of respondents still cut through the crap and want the troops to leave.
