not to belabor the obvious, but ALL "scientific polls/surveys"

are in fact, what they call in the industry as "push polls."

there is no such unicorn as a 'neutrally phrased' questionnaire.

every question in a survey is a loaded one, designed to yield a specific range of answers, to be used as a metric to formulate statist policies. that fact never changes.

But of course, this is a percentage of only those surveyed, NOT the entirety of a population of a given nation as a whole: ie, obviously, nobody surveyed the whole population of China's 1.355 billion! Duh. LOL.

Still, if you had to gauge a vox populi/prevailing sentiment among an identifiable group of masses, I'd highly recommend John Zogby's polls, and for more mainstream to slightly left of center: Pew Research Poll, which this one is. Gallup, is predominantly pro-state, but observed in context, and depending on how you yourself are individually aware of macro geopolitical trajectory, their poll results do in fact reveal interesting data.

that said, this maybe your wishful thinking: "Anyone who says they like to be spied on is paid to say it." but I don't think I have to remind you that historically, all modern tyrants have been popularly elected into 'office,' at least initially.

And history's littered with dead souls...who died at the hands of those whose daily repetitive self-rationalization mantra was: "I was just following orders."

while these type of polls/surveys are a broad generalization to be sure, that said, as historically observably visible: I would confidently argue that acquiescent sheeple are unfortunately always a majority, in almost all cultures.

so, frankly, I don't find this push poll results to be all that surprising, particularly, that of the Amerikan sheeple who were surveyed.

Predictions in due Time...
