Stefan Sharkansky has "Fun with Polls"
Read it at Shark Blog, and follow his "Advice to readers: whenever you see a news "report" about a poll, always go look at the actual poll results. You will learn all kinds of important things that you are not likely to find in any news article. In this case, for example:
59% - 40% say that Bush is honest and trustworthy (including 54% of independent voters). The "Bush lied" canard is working only among self-described Democrats.

Also, 61% - 37% agree that the war in Iraq is part of the war against terrorism (among them 50% - 47% of Democrats), and

58% - 38% think the United States should keep its military forces in Iraq until civil order is restored there, even if that means continued U.S. military casualties."
