Most people change their minds about stuff when presented with evidence that contradicts their earlier view.

Putz, quoting the reliably stupid, Mark Steyn.
MARK STEYN ON the Iraq War’s fair-weather hawks. “Ten years ago, along with three-quarters of the American people, including the men just appointed as President Obama’s secretaries of state and defense, I supported the invasion of Iraq. A decade on, unlike most of the American people, including John Kerry and Chuck Hagel, I’ll stand by that original judgment.”
Of course, the reason that many people supported the war at the time because they were being told IRAQ SOMETHING 9/11! and IRAQ HAS NUKES! by the Bush administration and pundits like Steyn and Putz. When both of those claims turned out to be false, support for the war among non-crazy people predictably collapsed.

Even the most right-wing hawks can see this.
ROHRABACHER: Well, now that we know that it cost a trillion dollars and all of these years and all of these lives and all of this blood, uh, I don’t know many…
NORQUIST: Looking for a number. Two-thirds? One-third?
ROHRABACHER: I, I can’t. All I can say is the people, everybody I know thinks it was a mistake to go in now.
NORQUIST: That’s 100 percent.

Alas, your headline is incorrect. Most people just double down. Study after study shows this depressing fact. Evidence be damned. It's "don't confuse me with the facts."
