Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I partially agree with the misreporting. People are more likely to respond in what they consider to be "acceptable". (In the words of our favourite clown Michael Moore: "Everyone here approves of what the president is doing. Ma, Pa, the kids, even the dog. You approve, dog!")

However I think your example about religion is precicely the opposite of what's happening. But do ask me again when you have an atheist president (or a few Governors. No, Jesse Ventura does not count! :) )
