Even though, as someone commented, the respondents were 9th graders, you'd think even a few more would have been savvy enough to catch the trick survey. And alarmism marches on because most public schools just churn out automatons who rarely think to question "authority." Similar studies have been done across all age groups, and it's startling how gullible people are. I think it was Twain who said, "It's easier to fool people than to convince them they have been fooled." Indeed. My favorite (and I can't recall who said it): "People want to be fooled; fool them."
