Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why favorite opinion poll question is "do you favor welfare" which always get a low response.

However, if you ask "do you favor giving money to the poor, ill and others unable to care for themselves" you get a high response.

What this shows is that most people's opinions are based upon a superficial response to buzz words. Recently a US poll asked which party has the majority in congress. The result was slightly above 50% correct. Given that there are only two choices, that's not saying much.

For an organization that tries to do a better job look up PIPA.
