Polls and Americans

I was watching something on the news today about the country and some polls showing people's opinions on certain topics.

"X% of Americans belive that there will be civil war in Iraq"

"X% of Americans believe that bin Laden will be caught."

Umm, excuse me, but what the hell do Americans know? Why would anyone put any stock into these numbers? As a whole, Americans don't know what the hell is going on in the world. What do they know about the necessary elements for civil war in a country they know nothing about? I know they're probably well intentioned, but sorry. If you don't know what the hell you're talking about (and the polls that really tell us that are the voting polls), then the media should ignore the polls.

Otherwise, just take the media's numbers with a big fat grain of salt.
