Poll: 50% Now Say Iraq Had WMDs

Issue: 50% of U.S. says Iraq had WMDs: Harris poll finds 'surprising' result, up from 36% last year/Washington Times

More Info: The survey did not speculate on what caused the shift in opinion, which supports President Bush's original rationale for going to war. Respondents were questioned in early July after the release of a Defense Department intelligence report that revealed coalition forces recovered 500 aging chemical weapons containing mustard or sarin gas nerve agents in Iraq.

DFO: Whether or not Iraq had WMDs isn't the issue here. It's strange that public opinion has swayed this much. Too bad the poll didn't investigate the reason for the change.

Question: Why do you think a change has taken place?
