Pockets of resistance to incontrovertible fact

With Democrats still largely too stunned to respond properly or else drowned out in major outlets, the Bush Administration's victory is being portrayed, in the US as well here in Britain, as a vindication of their stand on supposedly moral issues and the irrelevance of foreign policy to the US electorate. Praise is therefore due to the Program on International Policy Attitudes, which last month released the results of a survey showing, among things, that:
72 per cent. of Bush supporters believe that Iraq under Hussein had either actual WMD or a "major program" for developing them;
57 per cent. of them think that Charles Duelfer's report to congress on Iraq's WMD
"concluded (that) Iraq had at least a major WMD program";

75 per cent. believe that
"Iraq was providing substantial support to al Qaeda, and 63% believe that clear evidence of this support has been found";

and that only 31 per cent. of them

"recognize that the majority of people in the world oppose the US having gone to war with Iraq."
