Zogby Criticizes Cheney Use of Zogby Poll
The Zogby polling group did a sounding in Iraq last month, some results of which were trumpeted by US Vice President Dick Cheney in an interview, in which he alleged that most Iraqis supported a US style government. The true percentage who took that position? 23%. Zogby complains that there was lots of other bad news that the American Enterprise Institute glossed over or misinterpreted.
As you know, I don’t even think the poll was representative. Only one of the four cities sampled, Basra, was even Shiite, and East Baghdad was not consulted.
