Bush surporters clearly deluded:

In the report "The Separate Realities of Bush and Kerry Supporters", the Programme on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA) expose a clear devide between the world views of most Bush supporters and most Kerry supporters:

"A large majority of Bush supporters believe that before the war Iraq had weapons of mass destruction or a major program for building them. A substantial majority of Bush supporters assume that most experts believe Iraq had WMD and that this was the conclusion of the recently released report by Charles Duelfer. A large majority of Bush supporters believes that Iraq was providing substantial support to al Qaeda and that clear evidence of this support has been found. A large majority believes that most experts also have this view, and a substantial majority believe that this was the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission. Large majorities of Kerry supporters believe the opposite on all these points."

A large majority believes that most experts also have this view, and a substantial majority believe that this was the conclusion of the 9/11 Commission. Large majorities of Kerry supporters believe the opposite on all these points."

"Majorities of Bush supporters misperceive his positions on a range of foreign policy issues. In particular they assume he supports multilateral approaches and addressing global warming when he has taken strong contrary positions on issues such as the International Criminal court and the Kyoto Agreement. A majority of Kerry supporters have accurate perceptions of Kerry positions on the same issues."

This supports the argument that voters should have to prove some knowledge of the issues they're voting on before being given their ballot papers. The fact that the majority of Bush's vote will come from people who don't know what's going on in the world and don't even begin to understand what their candidate of choice stands for is pretty scary to me...
