Gallup Misleads on Iraq Not Funding After a Date Certain Proposal
Are they stupid or are they lying? Yet again, the pollsters seem incapable of accurately describing the Reid-Feingold framework. Let's remind again what is being proposed - after a date certain, March 31, 2008, the Congress will not fund the Iraq Debacle. How could you ask the American People about this? Here's how:
Would you support a proposal that provides a binding withdrawal date from Iraq by announcing that after March 31, 2008, the war will not be funded?
Because that is the proposal. How does Gallup describe it?
[Would you support a] candidate who supports legislation that would cut off funding for the war in Iraq.
This is obviously an inaccurate description. It implies immediate defunding. And that is a false description. Gallup insists on falsely describing the proposal. The question is why?
