Response to djsunyc (Original post)

20. This is a poorly conceived and designed poll . . .

I don't doubt that many, maybe even most, Trump voters do feel this way. But the design of it renders it nearly useless, because given the way the poll is worded, agreement (or disagreement) with one question does not necessarily preclude also agreeing (or also disagreeing) with the other.

Also, the headline is very misleading. The poll measures the number of Trump voters who agree or disagree with either statement. It does not measure the respondents' beliefs about how deserving one group is relative to the other. The article reads more into the polll results than can actually be determined given the design of the poll.
