I found this interesting and it made me wonder if this question or one similar has been asked by a reputable polling organization since the election of President Barack Obama? If you know, leave a comment.

Does anyone else think it’s troubling that more than half of Americans think that an extra-judicial, unconstitutional prison camp run by the U.S. government is O.K.?

From business and Wall Street to social issues, the poll is a snapshot of where the polity stands today four months into a new presidency. One of the interesting points made by the report writers and the data is that the waning fortunes of the Republican Party do not necessarily mean the demise of conservatism in America.
