Sometimes, the American public gets it right:
Do you approve or disapprove of the decision to remove all U.S. combat troops from Iraq by the end of this year?
Do you think the Bush administration deliberately misled the American public about whether Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, or not?
Yes, deliberately misled: 57
No, did not: 41
