Poller Beware

Views

Yesterday we told you about a new poll showing a clear majority of Americans supporting allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly in the US military. Now we have another poll which confirms that basic fact but also shows how sensitive the question is to just how you pose the question. You get dramatically different answers depending on whether the question refers to “gay men and lesbians” or “homosexuals.”
