CNN poll: 60 percent now want to keep Gitmo open 

Just before Barack Obama’s inauguration, CNN asked Americans: “do you think the U.S. should continue to operate this [detention] facility [at Guantanamo Bay] or do you think the U.S. should close this facility and transfer the prisoners to other facilities?”

The results: 51 percent favored closing Gitmo and 47 percent wanted to keep it open.

A new poll shows a huge shift: Only 39 percent favor closing Gitmo and 60 percent want to keep it open.
