Very, only 4% fully in favour, and 58% fully opposed when I checked. Especially interesting given the question seems designed to elicit a favorable response (ground based interceptors designed to address accidental launches or attacks by rougue(sp) states).

That poll is fixed, I checked his site that said 66% opposed and 2 minutes later, suddleny through the magic of the internet the new poll suggested that 58% of people support it fully.

Don't know about whether it's fixed, but there's definitely something wrong with the poll, b/c it has the exact same percentages as 24 hours ago.

Had a hard time figuring that out myself. You have to click on "Home" to get to the main front page, then scroll down the right column a ways to get to the poll.

That result is very interesting. It is not easy to find that Paul Martin site. I would assume a lot of Paul Martin supporters would use it, and if this is their general position on the missile thing we may see Martin take more Chretien-style decisions on relations with the Bush administration. Martin may have to do this to keep the NDP and the Bloc down.

If he take conservative-type positions on these issues it looks like he won't be dancing with the ones who brought him. That could free up a lot of support for the NDP.

The result is obviously fixed. There have been the exact same percentages on his website for the last 48 hours.

So this is how Martin hopes to get rid of the "democratic deficit"? Give us the illusion of participation but no actual impact on the outcome?
