Harvard-Harris poll that allegedly found strong public support for renegotiating Iran nuclear deal used loaded question. “Some people say that the Iran nuclear deal is not perfect and the Iranians are building up their nuclear capability secretly, but we should not rock the boat now and just let it all slide along. Others say if Iranians are not compliant we have to call them out on it and push to renegotiate the deal with real verification. What would be your preferred course of action?”   https://theintercept.com/2017/10/28/renegotiate-iran-deal-harvard-harris-poll-mark-penn/   Wow, no bias there! “Because it is likely that some Syrian refugees are actually terrorists, government security officials argue that we should protect our homeland and not accept them.
