The stats (SurveyUSA):

A majority of Americans say the debate should be held. Just 10% say the debate should be postponed. A sizable percentage of Americans, 36%, think the focus of the debate should be modified to focus more on the economy. 3 of 4 Americans say the presidential campaign should continue. Just 14% say the presidential campaign should be suspended. If Friday’s debate does not take place 46% of Americans say that would be bad for America.

I think the 10% must be the folks over at Clown Hall and Freeperland, because they have purchased the Sam's Club economy size jug of GOP Kool-Aid and are awash in delusion, seeing McCain's Hail Mary stunt as "patriotic" and a "smart decision."
