So Much for That 84%

Rasmussen polling did a little survey, and found that 22% of Americans believe that Bush knew about the 9-11 attacks beforehand.

Overall, 22% of all voters believe the President knew about the attacks in advance. A slightly larger number, 29%, believe the CIA knew about the attacks in advance. White Americans are less likely than others to believe that either the President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance. (Young) Americans are more likely than their elders to believe the President or the CIA knew about the attacks in advance.


Note that the 22% presumably includes both LIHOP and MIHOP kooks and may also include some Americans who felt the administration had ample warning of the attacks but failed to stop them because of incompetence.

Of course, it's not hard to see how innumerate dolts like Alex Jones will misinterpret this:

Democrats in America are evenly divided on the question of whether George W. Bush knew about the 9/11 terrorist attacks in advance. Thirty-five percent (35%) of Democrats believe he did know, 39% say he did not know, and 26% are not sure.

Republicans reject that view and, by a 7-to-1 margin, say the President did not know in advance about the attacks. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 18% believe the President knew and 57% take the opposite view.
