News - Many Germans Want Berlin Wall Back Say what you will about red states versus blue states, but things could always be worse. It's unfortunate, though, that things in Germany have gotten so bad that they've actually reflected on this thought. Promote this thread!

AIM: # 2 Posted on 28.3.05 1149.18 Reposted on: 28.3.12 1152.25 I have a couple problems with this. 2,000 people were surveyed in a country of 83 MILLION ( http://www.nationbynation.com/Germany/Population.html). Is that REALLY a high enough number of people to assume that most of the country wants the wall back? Secondly, only 12% want the wall back in the east- that means 88% DON'T, right? I guess the headline wouldn't be as sexy if they focused on that side. Personally, I don't consider 12% (or 25% really, for that matter) to be "many."

I seem to remember Grimis posting it much to CRZ's dismay...

This is hardly "Germans want the Berlin Wall back". I bet you could get similiar numbers in the US about the Confederacy, prohibition, and Women's suffrage. Heh. As the Man Show demonstrated, you could probably find higher percentages of Americans who don't know what suffrage _is_.

I can only imagine the level of frustration that has risen in West Germany since reunification. I am surprosed numbers aren't higher. Guru is correct that the numbers are low.
