At least that’s what some GOPers—and I imagine oil state Democrats—think, according to a poll by Public Policy Polling.

The most astounding number from the poll? 28% of Republicans said the recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico made them more likely to support drilling off the coast to an equal 28% who said it made them less likely to be supportive. 44% said it made no difference to them and that’s understandable, but why would an oil spill make you more supportive of drilling?

Maybe they want to wipe out marine life.  Hat tip to PoliticalWire.
