When good polls go bad

One can only wonder where the freepers were 3 weeks ago when this Angus Reid poll was done. It's bad news all around for fetus fetishists as the Sun reports, "Canada a pro-choice country: Poll":
"An overwhelming majority of Canadians continue to support women's right to abort pregnancies, but a recent national survey found the country is split when asked who should foot the bill. The online Angus-Reid poll -- conducted June 4 and 5 of 1,000 adult Canadians -- found 91% of respondents supported abortions under certain circumstances, and only 5% would outlaw it altogether." (emphasis -- hahahaha! -- mine)
91% Pro-Choice! That certainly got the propellers spinning on a few "FD" beanies:

"Online polls are notoriously stacked by organizations that spam them to get the desired result": NOOOOO! Outrageous! Who knew!? But when poll numbers don't go your way, what do you do? Give the messenger two behind the ear, that's what! Bang! Bang!:

While the Sun article could hardly be characterized as a "flat-out lie", I absolutely agree with the sentiment -- dishonesty, manipulation and all manner of odious and squalid lies and distortions should be retracted forthwith and the perpetrators beaten like junkyard dogs.
