That's More Like It!

Zogby's poll asked different questions about the Terri Schiavo case, and got an entirely different group of answers. This is unlike the ABC and other polls, which claimed that Terri was "on life support" and had been "brain dead" for 15 years, and then asked if people would want to live that way and if "life support" should be withdrawn.

As Disraeli said, there are "lies, damned lies, and statistics". But if you start with lying questions, you'll always get misleading answers.
