Love those numbers!

IMRA posted another of their opinion polls, and I find the results fascinating. They show two sets of numbers; one general results and one according to the political parties the respondents had voted for in the previous elections.

* Probrable typo in their post; they had written 5.2, which doesn't seem possible, so I moved the decimal point. If I have to correct it further, I'll "comment."
**The poll took place before she got facts out which countered some of the charges, so I'm not including the detailed results.
