it's a false inference, jon

although there are polls out there that indicate a majority wants a public option, that is not indicative of them wanting government-run health care.

suppose you oppose the death penalty. if you also supported more humane ways to kill somebody, this doesn't mean you support capital punishment. it just means, given the circumstances, you would prefer a more way of putting somebody to death -- and nothing on your opinion on capital punishment.

indeed, polls even show that more than 50% of the people do not even think the government should be in charge of running health care.

so, stewart is implying a false inference.
