Poll on Democrats and Republicans

While lots of the results from the poll are as I expected, a couple surprised me.

I didn't realize that 50% of Democrats wouldn't vote for an atheist and want creationism taught in school. So much for the idea that the Democrats are a bunch of godless sodomites.

I also didn't know that less than 50% of Republicans think abortion should be illegal. Why is it so hard for a pro-choice Republican to be nominated if that is the majority view?

The split on the environment was also more than I expected. Only 25% of Republicans think that the environment is a very important issue?

And I will never understand why terrorism is so important to the majority of Americans. While 3,000 Americans died in the terrorist attacks of 9/11, 45,000 Americans die each year in traffic accidents. Terrorism is only a big deal if you allow yourself to be terrorized by it. To those Americans who consider it important, I say to you that when you are afraid the terrorists win.
