Seventy percent of Americans believe what?

One year into Obama's first term, not facts but misinformation continues to shape the political consciousness of the US electorate. CNN  (h/t Rick B, t/s) reports:
Seven in 10 Americans believe that Iran currently has nuclear weapons, according to a new national poll.. . .  with only a quarter calling for immediate military action.
The problem -- which I blogged about the other day -- extends well beyond Fox News and its demographic.
