Playing with Poll Numbers

How the AP defines the 'vast majority of parents' is suspect.

I wonder what would have happened if the question was "Do support MIDDLE schools giving birth controls to students WITHOUT parental consent OR knowledge?"

I also liked the question, How many of you have school aged children and the response was that 2/3 of survey respondents didn't have school kids? Talk about a bad sampling for that question. Compare the numbers--there is an odd coincidence there, or is it an odd coincidence.
