Polling can be misleading
The Post's poll asking, "Could you pull the trigger that kills two Australians?" is interesting in that it originally showed Yes 64%, No 18% with "I agree to others doing it" at 18%.
After almost a week there has been a significant shift to Yes 42%, No 42% and "I agree to others doing it" at 16%.
You can only vote once, so the number of people who voted late have swamped the original figures and indicates the publicity surrounding the fate of the Bali two has seen a softening of many hardliners in relation to capital punishment.
It's funny but a poll can be distorted by how a question is framed. So I'll put up another poll with the question "Should the Bali two pay the ultimate penalty for dealing in narcotics?".... without the third option, let's see what happens.
