While I'm on the subject of problematic polls, I've always found the 
Pia survey to be rather suspect. Not only is there the problem of 
survey sample, but the questions are inexact and the survey in no way 
tries to accommodate for differences in audiences and survey 
conditions. It is a curiosity, which you could perhaps use in a 
footnote when writing about a film, but does little more than increases 
the amount of information Pia is trying to sell.
