|—||Poll: Romney receives low score for convention speech - Political Hotsheet - CBS News (via sarahlee310)|
After taking a look at the comments concerning a recent Tumblr post, I got to thinking…
What classic book do you secretly (or not so secretly) love to hate?
Most Egyptians distrust the United States and want to renegotiate their peace treaty with Israel, according to a new poll by the Pew Global Attitudes Project.
But, as Michael Birnbaum of the Washington Post notes, “only 31 percent say they sympathize with fundamentalists, while 30 percent say they sympathize with those who disagree with fundamentalists. An additional 26 percent said they had mixed views.
The poll is the first comprehensive look at attitudes of Egyptians since protests forced President Hosni Mubarak to end his 30-year reign in February.”
Nearly three-quarters of Americans say Obama should withdraw a “substantial number” of combat troops from Afghanistan this summer, the deadline he set to begin pulling out some forces. Only 39 percent of respondents, however, say they expect him to withdraw large numbers.
