They’re not Buying It

The American people, that is. Rasmussen has the latest poll data on Guantanamo Bay:

A Rasmussen Reports survey found that 20% of Americans believe prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have been treated unfairly. Seven-out-of-ten adults believe the prisoners are being treated “better than they deserve” (36%) or “about right” (34%).
The survey also found that just 14% agree with people who say that prisoner treatment at Guantanamo Bay is similar to Nazi tactics. Sixty-nine percent disagree with that comparison. This helps explain why Illinois Senator Dick Durbin apologized for making such a comparison.

So Americans who think the terrorists are being treated better than they deserve outnumber those who think they are being treated too harshly by almost two to one. But, hey, the Dems are really solid with that 20%!
