Public polls support space strongly

A variety of polls have come out this week showing dramatic public support for space.

The latest of these is the AOL quick poll, available here. The latest numbers were that 91% of the public supported the shuttle program. Poll size was 42,000 people.

Gallup also released a poll this week showing similar results. See here for the link. Here's a quote: "Nearly three in four Americans favor a continuation of the manned space shuttle program, and a majority believes NASA is moving at an appropriate pace in restarting it. A majority also says NASA is doing a good job overall. More Americans oppose than favor setting aside money for a future Mars landing."
