Hmmm, something seems misleading about their headline.
Polling is notoriously subjective, depending on the way that questions are asked, and the targeted participants. Even the size of the poll matters a great deal. The headline could easily be stated this way, and be just as correct........"Most feel that contraceptives are a parental decision"
Yes, polls can be subjective, but based on this poll's results, the headline wasn't misleading. The size of this poll was fine, and there is no indication they were targeting anyone in particular as they most likely used random digit dialing, which is widely regarded as a very representative way to sample from the general population.
