75% : Hasan pointed to Bush's attack ad on Democratic opponent and Maryland governor Michael Dukakis, which highlighted a Maryland crime involving a black male and a white victim -- something Bush made sure was a focal point of the ad.

47% : The 41-year-old journalist also noted that Bush lied about the weapons of mass destruction he claimed were held in Iraq to justify invading the country.
