You'll Pay to Know What You Think

I saw the results of a Gallup Poll about the Iraq War today. The numbers aren't important; the interesting thing was the list of options: set a timetable for withdrawal of troops, withdraw troops when the situation improves, or no opinion. Was there really no one who wanted to withdraw troops right away, or was the option just not given? I think we know the answer, which brings me to the point of the post: a poll that is supposed to reflect our opinion is actually manipulating it.
