Healthcare: Bias in polling

Just ran across this Newsmax poll on healthcare. I direct you attention to question number two:

2) Do you believe the Democratic health plan should include 45 million uninsured, including illegal aliens?
A) Yes, should include 45 million.
A1) No, should not.

That last part after the comma makes the question interesting. “Including illegal aliens?”.

If you say yes you support insuring illegal aliens. Answering no says you don’t care about the 45 million U.S. Citizens who don’t have insurance of any kind.

The list of issues I have with this poll goes on. They use language like “Universal Healthcare”. Universal Health Care is a third rail isssue in this country because insurance companies pretty much control the whole game.

So go ahead, take the survey. Have fun!
