I'm Right and You're Wrong

I received a comment from some Left Wing "She Should Die" nut berating me on a post I wrote about ABC's badly questioned poll on the fate of Terri Schiavo. The ABC Poll erroneously asked:
"Schiavo suffered brain damage and has been on life support for 15 years," the poll informed respondents. "Doctors say she has no consciousness and her condition is irreversible. Her husband and her parents disagree about whether she would have wanted to be kept alive. Florida courts have sided with the husband and her feeding tube was removed on Friday. What's your opinion on this case – do you support or oppose the decision to remove Schiavo's feeding tube?"

And the results were 63 percent supported the removal of her feeding tube.

But a new poll by Zogby, presented the whole and truthful facts in their question:
"If a disabled person is not terminally ill, not in a coma, and not being kept alive on life support, and they have no written directive, should or should they not be denied food and water," the poll asked.

This time the results were 79 percent in favor of NOT removing the tube.

Again I state, that a poll is only as good as the question asked, and when the question asked presents the FACTS, you will get a truthful polling statistic, unlike ABC's poll which was a lie.
