Apparently, the answer is, “VERY” according to researchers:
If you were asked about a moral issue, say prostitution or illegal immigration, and were then asked about it again a few moments later, would you hold the same belief? You might think so, but new research from Sweden shows there’s not only a good chance that you will change your mind, but that you will vehemently defend the very opposite of the position you reported merely moments ago.
Might well explain how the city leaders might believe that a taxpayer funded stadium is a good idea while also reading the overwhelming studied research against that being the case. In other words, they can defend both positions and still feel comfortable.
