You see the same results on all the big polls.
Golly, I am shocked that you missed this: "...results from the latest Harris Poll of 1,001 U.S. adults surveyed by telephone between April 20 and 23, 2007 by Harris Interactive(R)." Or maybe you've never heard of Harris? I am sure that's it. You wouldn't think to obfuscate, I know that.
PS For your edification.
