    Which 37 countries?
    I could name >12 Muslim countries where Bush would rank below Stalin.

    That's a good question and obviously can have a great impact on the results

    Not a lot of predominantly Muslim countries. However, I can't say I know much about the politics of many of these countries

    Who is George Bush Jr?

    We have had two Bush family members as president. George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush. There are no Juniors.

    Low info indeed. Even Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden would be many millions of deaths behind Stalin and Mao.

    Propaganda works, folks. Hitler, Mao and Stalin all knew it.

    Karl Marx and G. Washington are tied...that says a lot about the idiocy and/or political leanings of those involved in this poll.:cool:

    So a few more than 180 students per country amounts to what significance on this subject? For that matter, undergrads are authorities on what? They generally tend to be some of the most misguided people in a population.

    All this study did was take a VERY small slice of some countries' populations and show the opinions of traditionally Leftist echo chamber components. They have little or no real life experience, and they parrot what their masters tell them to parrot.

    This study is so poorly conceived that it is only good for lining bird cages with its shreddings or wiping one's butt with the unshredded pages.

    Ever watch Walter's World on The O'Reilly Factor?

    Walter often interviews college students and other people located in areas known to have an abundance of liberals in various locations around the U.S., to record, for broadcast as a segment on The O'Reilly Factor, whether or not they're knowable about history,current events, and famous people from the past and present. Walter has proven over and over how really uninformed and uneducated college students and liberals really are. It's absolutely hilarious to watch Walter's World.

    Judging from what is shown on Walter's World, I would speculate that a great many of the people who participated in that survey probably have no clue who the most of the people they were rating were/are.

    MLK was a "Jr" and they neglected to mention that LOL

    These idiots would have thought he was Martin Luther's son, obviously :rolleyes:
    Mohammed ranked more towards the "hero" end than I thought he would...
