Accuracy vs. Political Correctness

Rasmussen reports:
Voters continue to believe that political correctness trumps accuracy in most school textbooks. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 16% of Likely U.S. Voters think most school textbooks are more concerned about accurately providing information. That's down from 27% in March 2010. Fifty-nine percent (59%) think most textbooks are chiefly concerned with presenting information in a politically correct manner, consistent with attitudes for the past three years. Twenty-five percent (25%) are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
Considering the requirements of California textbooks, this result should be higher in California. I wonder if it is.

And what do the people polled think about the length of the emperor's nose?

Texas is the driving force in textbooks; CA is but a close second.
