People said the same thing about Q-piac 2012 election polls and we saw how that turned out.
Is it some sort of ego thing where people can't accept that they have an opinion that's in the minority? Or is it a function of people self-sorting into groups where their family, workmates, acquaintances all have the same views they do, giving a false impression of "public" opinion?
no quinipiac has a looooooooong history of push polling. Their poling outfit was FOUNDED to push poll.
elections are different in that all polling “gels” to the credible result at the end.
There’s only one poll that matters: the voting members of the Boy Scouts. This poll doesn’t cover members of the Boy Scouts, a private organization.
In America, the majority doesn’t trump our Right to Free Association.

That questions goes both ways. The advocates for acceptance and now promotion of homosexuality were in the minority at one time.
I think a more telling statistic will be how many boy scouts will quit the organization if the board endorses homosexuals in the scouts. I would bet they would loose 70-80% of the current active scout members. Which parent in their right mind would send their 10-13 boy on a scouting trip, overnight or not, to be supervised by a homosexual pervert? I can't imagine too many parents, even liberal ones, who would do this.
