AK countered with 72% do not want Roe v. Wade overturned*. The latter is the more important stat. NutMeg ignored her. Way back in my college days I recall a class where they talked about polls, and how inconsistent they are, because there is bias in the way a question is asked. For example: If you ask, "do you support a womans right to make decisions related to reproduction?" You get a different result than if you ask, " do you think a woman has the right to kill her unborn child if it is inconvenient for her to be pregnant?" The pro-choice/anti-choice percentages depend largely on how you word the questions. Polls are often worded a certain way to influence the results. Without knowing the specifics of who was polled and what questions were asked, opinion polls are meaningless. I hate when Meghan seems to have a poll-based statistic for everything she believes, instead of just stating something as her own belief. 1 23 Link to comment
