65% of Americans OPPOSE Closing Gitmo, do you?

A USA Today/Gallup poll released Tuesday states that “most oppose closing Gitmo,” reporting that “by more than 2-1, those surveyed say Guantanamo shouldn't be closed. By more than 3-1, they oppose moving some of the accused terrorists housed there to prisons in their own states.” But nowhere in the USA Today story do they post the actual percentage points or the even more convincing internal results.
Real Clear Politics and Byron York of the Washington Examiner (who had an inside look at the internals of the poll) reported that a very large majority -- 65% -- oppose closing the suspected terrorist detention center, Guantanamo Bay and only 32% believe it should be closed.

Do you think if Obama closes Gitmo and brings terrorists to the US, he could lose votes in 2012?

  • I don't think Obama has a shot in hell in winning any election in 2012. He's screwed up enough already.

  • I'm for giving those detainees fair trials and punishments if found guilty- if found innocent, they should be set free. We are American's not savages.
