More Lying With Headlines

Here's the actualities:

55% of Americans believe in retrospect that the use of the interrogation techniques was justified, while only 36% say it was not. Notably, a majority of those following the news about this matter "very closely" oppose an investigation and think the methods were justified.

A new Gallup Poll finds 51% of Americans in favor and 42% opposed to an investigation into the use of harsh interrogation techniques on terrorism suspects during the Bush administration

So the headline from Gallup?

"Slim Majority Wants Bush-Era Interrogations Investigated."

Yah, well, a LARGER majority thinks that the interrogation methods were just fine, thanks.
