Not the guy who was actually president and CiC at the time. Not even to the previous president through some magical "setting the stage" kind of pretzel logic. They credit Romney!!!!!
Turns out Public Policy Polling (PPP) asked Ohio Republican voters:
Q15: Who do you think deserved more credit for the killing of Osama bin Laden: Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?
Normally, this would be the kind of question one reserved for a mental status check, on par with "Who is president?" and "What is today's date?" This wasn't some esoteric piece of information buried in a Friday night news dump about overseas trading after the market closed. This was the killing of Public Enemy #1. The guy who changed everything and pushed us into the "new normal" we have been dealing with for over ten years.
This wasn't some piece of long-forgotten history, like "Who started the French and Indian War?" (answer: George Washington) This was May 2, 2011 -- less than 500 days ago!
Apparently of ALL OH voters, 31% are UNSURE?!?!! Really. Where do these idiots come from? Apparently, most of them come from the same crowd who identify themselves as Republicans. If you look at the crosstabs, you find more than 50% of Conservatives are UNSURE. That's a majority of conservatives. That's not a fluke. That's the majority. Even more amazing 15% of VERY Conservative voters are sure Romney gets the credit for this.
