Only one in five?

Here's your "well, golly gee, how can that be?" moment of the day-one in five people don't believe that bin Laden is dead.  Now what would cause people to question the White House's version of recent events?

Maybe someone should have explained to the White House that when you make a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT about a BIG EVENT that it is wise to have your story together.  Instead we were treated to ever changing stories that made it seem as if the Administration didn't know what the real story was and that they were making it up as they went along.  It certainly didn't help that they had no more than announced that Osama had been buried at sea "in keeping with Muslim tradition" that Muslims came out of the woodwork from every corner of the Earth to say that "the tradition" was news to them.  Combine that with a couple of faked pictures and it is a wonder that only one in five are questioning bin Laden's death.

Question:  if one in five believe that Osama is still alive, what is the number of people who believe that he was killed years ago?  Judging from the people I've talked to that number could easily be higher than one in five.
