    And then there are those who saw the poll as being poorly constructed and so didn't even bother to vote.

    You are apparently referring to the poll in this thread. I am referring to the posts in the link I offered in the post you previously quoted.

    More likely it was people who drew a dividing line between individual liberty and community interest at a different point than you.

    Radical Muslims have a problem. Atheists have an opinion.

    For instance, a woman might well say "I would date a black man and I would judge his suitability on his personality and not on race." Over the course of many introductions to black men she never manages to find one who meets her suitability criteria while meeting many white men who she does date. What's going on? We don't even have to assume that she's lying about her position, she might well believe it because she wants to think of herself as that kind of person. Her actions though tell a different story.
    That's one of the problems with this type of thing. As a result, it becomes difficult to draw objective conclusions. And although you may say her actions tell a different story, because it's an internal subjective thing, she might be telling the truth. So it's hard, very difficult.

    I don't think it's a surprise that people reveal their preferences. I know that you have to be careful how you take samples when doing this type of statistical work. If you don't, you could be lead to some conclusions that don't necessarily conform to reality.
