I have to wonder who makes up the questions for these polls, who conducts them, who decides how they are conducted, and who makes up the reports on the results?

Sometimes, I get the impression the people who design these polls are the same ones who thought up the referendum about whether parents would be happy if their children were taught to use Arabic numerals in school? Ask that in Massachusetts, and you'll probably get a majority of, "whaddy think, I'm stupid or something?" Ask it in Idaho, and you'll get a lot of "over my dead body!"
