Further Confirmation of Kerr’s Law

New polling shows a majority of Americans, and even a majority of self-described liberal Democrats, support drone strikes against suspected terrorists and keeping the Guantanamo Bay detention facility open.  The Advocacy Center for Equality and Democracy comments:

the polling data suggests that a significant number of people who identify as belonging to a political party (a) change their values to conform to the policies of their party, and/or (b) change their values to oppose the leader of the other party. Either is totally inconsistent with a citizen’s role in a democracy.

More here and here.  This is further confirmation of Kerr’s Law (as is much of the opposition to the individual mandate from those who used to support it).
