Most Americans apparently aren’t as worried about the heated tone of our nation’s political debate as some media pundits. A new CBS News poll shows that 57 percent of Americans don’t think that alleged Tucson killer Jared Loughner was motivated by heated political conflict, Politico reports. A much smaller 32 percent thought he was.
