Percentage of Americans who believe the earliest humans lived at the same time as the dinosaurs:52
Percentage of Americans who believe aliens have contacted the U.S. government:37
Percentage of Americans who think the government should have the right to control what information the news media can report:28
Percentage of Americans who believe the Sept. 11 attacks were predicted by the Book of Revelation:23
Percentage of Americans who believe the death penalty has not been used against innocent people in the last five years:22

Well, this might explain those:

Percentage of Americans who get their news from radio talk shows every day:22

The solution is simple. Kill the ~22% overlap!
