Here a poll that shows people think we should close Gitmo, but keep doing things the same way. With the exception of 20% more thinking future detainees should be housed inside the US, the rest of the poll shows that while Gitmo is unpopular, the (some times slim) majorty side with pretty much what we're already doing.
Except they'd send the low priority detainees back to their country of origin, where they'll probably be treated worse, or killed. But that's not much different - isn't Gitmo worse than death?
Also revealing is the lack of a clear popular choice, except to close Gitmo.
Ah, that is Americans.
