Nicks from Occam's Razor

Okay, so President Bush has been citing a poll that says lots of Iraqis believe their country is going in the right direction:

Bush was referring to a survey by the International Republican Institute, a nonprofit group aimed at promoting democracy, which showed that more than 51% of Iraqis felt their country was headed "in the right direction." Thirty-one percent said it was headed in the wrong direction.

Now, I see via a link from Atrios that the group that did the survey may have been biased.

But I have a simpler explanation. I'm guessing that a majority of Iraqis think the country's going in the right direction because a majority of Iraqis are now part of the insurgency.
