   THIS WEEK'S POLL
Former President Bush and former Vice President Cheney say that the invasion of Iraq was necessary to overthrow Saddam Hussein, even though he did not possess weapons of mass destruction. Most Republican presidential candidates disagree and say they would not have invaded Iraq if the only goal was to remove Hussein.   To paraphrase a question asked of the candidates, knowing what we know now, should the United States have invaded Iraq?



Republicans in the House and Senate are split over extending the Patriot Act, because of the provisions that allow the bulk collection of telephone data from American citizens. The House wants to change the law, but the Senate is pushing to extend it as is.   Should the surveillance section of the Patriot Act be extended or ended?





   LAST WEEK'S RESULTS
(WyomingNetwork does NOT represent this as a scientific poll.)
There are new calls for removing Endangered Species Act protection for wolves. Those who want the wolves delisted say the protections have had a negative economic impact in the area where wolves roam. Those who want to keep the protections in place say scientific studies do not show the wolf population is strong enough for them to be removed from the Endangered species list yet.   Should the decision on removing protection for wolves be based on scientific estimates, or the economic impact of the protections?

Use scientific estimates
51.9%

Use the economic impact
48.1%

The city of Laramie is considering a town ordinance that would ban discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity. The Wyoming Legislature failed to pass a bill that would do the same thing statewide.  Should the decision on banning discrimination be up to the local cities and towns, or done statewide?

Let local communities decide
40.7%

The policy should be statewide
59.3%
