Starvation Not So Popular After All

You likely have already seen this somewhere else, but just in case, Zogby has some poll data on the Schiavo case that are quite different from what other pollsters have reported. In particular:

“If a disabled person is not terminally ill, not in a coma, and not being kept alive on life support, and they have no written directive, should or should they not be denied food and water,” the poll asked.
A whopping 79 percent said the patient should not have food and water taken away while just 9 percent said yes.

That’s obviously a fairer way of describing Terri Schiavo’s situation than most polls used. The only thing that bothers me about the Zogby data is that I haven’t been able to find the complete poll results anywhere; even Zogby’s own site only has a “Life News” story about the poll. If anyone has a link to the complete data, let us know.
