US Societal benchmarks


TS Contributor
that I've accumulated over the years:

85% of the people trust nurses.
85% somehow believed 911 had to do with Iraq.
7% trust car salespeople.
12% thought Nixon was telling the truth, 75% thought not.
If half are 'for' and half are 'against', the issue will not be settled. How 'bout if 1/3 are 'for'?

For you behavioral science types, can you give me any more rules of thumb that persist?

Thanks. :)
