The question is “Who shot Abraham Lincoln?”

And it is probably good news that in a recent poll, 75% of Americans correctly answered “John Wilkes Booth.” But for whatever reasons, a full 7% of those polled said it was Oswald who, despite having been born in 1939, was the man who shot Honest Abe in 1865.

Hey, we’re none of us perfect, right? At least they were a little closer to the mark than the 1% of respondents who said Lincoln’s assassin was composer/conductor Michael Tilson Thomas.
