One of the most interesting things about Derek's poll was how little
difference there was on race and gender lines.

The weakest link was the old folks who were only 4:3 against war if it
was UN sanctioned and then the young folk who were 17:6 antiwar if UN.
Interestingly the middle-aged were more antiwar, 13:2, even if UN.
