Not Just the Fringe

According to this Anti-Defamation League poll, 43 percent of Americans believe Israel is a threat to world peace. And 37 percent of Americans believe America is the greatest threat to world peace.

UPDATE: Moe Lane (who blogs at Obsidian Wings) in the comments points out that there must be a mistake. 37 percent can't think America is the greatest threat because 77 percent think North Korea is the greatest threat. It must be that 37 percent think America is a threat to world peace.

Meanwhile, a Gallup poll shows 37 percent (the exact same number as above) say they would vote for Howard Dean if the election were held today, while 60 percent would vote for Bush.

Democrats have a very serious problem, but they still refuse to accept it.
