Just 18% Believe Iran has Stopped Nuclear Weapons Development Program
Friday, December 07, 2007

Just 18% of American voters believe that Iran has halted its nuclear weapons program. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 66% disagree and say Iran has not stopped its nuclear weapons program. Twenty-one percent (21%) of men believe Iran has stopped the weapons development along with 16% of women (see crosstabs).

The survey was conducted following release of a government report saying that Iran halted its nuclear weapons development program in 2003.

Keep in mind. The survey was done the day of and day after the release of the NIE report. It's likely most of those polled had not even heard of the report prior to being polled.

Push polling?

3. Isn't this embarrassing, and tragic?
You would hope that we would have learned something from the catastrophe of the past seven years, specifically the debacle of Iraq and the reality of having been lied into a war in which we murdered millions of innocent people and have watched our own young people killed would have by now sunk in.

Our major failing as a species is we do not learn from the past. Nowadays, we witness even the collapse of the fundamental ability of analytic reasoning. It's a shame.

9. Reread it.
Thought maybe I missed something (wouldn't be the first time). Did not change my mind. I still don't believe the poll has any real credibility. Just saying.
