Americans Support Treatment at Guantanamo Bay

Rasmussen has some interesting poll results:
June 22, 2005--A Rasmussen Reports survey found that 20% of Americans believe prisoners at Guantanamo Bay have been treated unfairly. Seven-out-of-ten adults believe the prisoners are being treated "better than they deserve" (36%) or "about right" (34%).

The survey also found that just 14% agree with people who say that prisoner treatment at Guantanamo Bay is similar to Nazi tactics. Sixty-nine percent disagree with that comparison. This helps explain why Illinois Senator Dick Durbin apologized for making such a comparison.

Partisan differences concerning prisoner treatment are huge. Only 7% of Republicans believe Guantanamo prisoners are treated unfairly. Thirty percent (30%) of Democrats hold that view along with 22% of those not affiliated with either major party.

Forty-five percent (45%) of Republicans say the prisoners are treated better than they deserve. That view is shared by 28% of Democrats.
Good to know that the 24/7 non-stop negative publicity by the Democrats and the left-wing media is not working. At the end of the day, Americans understand exactly who the people are that the U.S. are holding (terrorists, murderers) at Guantanamo Bay and how well they are being treated.

The Democrats had better wisen up... do they want Americans to trust the Democratic Party with our national security or do they want to become known as the party that is more concerned with terrorist rights??? The Alleged abuse of detainees at Guantanamo Bay is, by no means, a good issue for the Democrats to embrace.
