...and it will go even higher, of course, once the president feels the need to weigh in on the controversy once again. And he will feel the need, if for nothing else than to echo Daisy Khan's assertion that we are a nation of Nazis, as anti-Islamic as they were anti-semetic. Why, just look at the gas chambers set up in Times Square! Whoops, sorry, they're just porta-potties....
A lot more voters are paying attention to the plans to build a mosque near the Ground Zero site of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City, and they don’t like the idea.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 85% of U.S. voters say they are now following news stories about the mosque planned near Ground Zero. That’s a 34-point jump from a month ago when only 51% said they were following the story.
The new finding includes 58% who are following the story very closely, up from 22% in mid-July.
Now 62% oppose the building of a mosque near where the World Trade Center stood in Lower Manhattan, compared to 54% in the previous survey. Twenty-five percent (25%) favor allowing the mosque to go ahead, and 13% more are not sure.
Sixty-eight percent (68%) of the Political Class, however, favor building the mosque near Ground Zero. Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Mainstream voters are opposed.
That's quite a gap between the people and the politicians. Are we citizens, or are we subjects? Whether or not this mosque of evil goes forward will determine, at least, how are identity is perceived by our "political class"...
