Poll: Surprised By Who Is Still Alive?

60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll Finds Overwhelming Surprise Osama Bin Laden Is Still Alive

It's quite a question when your choice of answers ranges from Osama bin Laden to the Octo-Mom! Osama wins with half of Americans saying they're surprised he's managed to evade capture and elude justice for over nine years. Ozzy Osborne and his sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle is next with 19 percent, but his fellow rocker Keith Richards got only nine percent.

Lesser stars like Lindsay Lohan who looked young just a few years ago, Abe Vigoda who looked ancient 35 years ago and Mickey Rourke who we don't know what he really looks like got five percent, four percent, and three percent respectively. And the Octo-Mom got only one percent - very little support for her life threatening feat.




Check out the rest of the "60 Minutes"/Vanity Fair Poll.

This poll was conducted at the CBS News interviewing facility among a random sample of 906 adults nationwide, interviewed by telephone September 6-8, 2010. Phone numbers were dialed from random digit dial samples of both standard land-line and cell phones. The error due to sampling for results based on the entire sample could be plus or minus three percentage points. The error for subgroups is higher.
