It's unfortunate that no one thought to conduct a similar poll before Obama handed over $150 billion in taxpayer funds to Iran three and a half years ago, and received nothing for it whatsoever--not even a wall.

Meanwhile, that money could have bought something like 112 hospitals and 72 universities...but I'm sure that's besides the point.
