The trend to use spurious opinion polling as a way of advertising - in this case advertising the AO:

These polls are put out by marketing companies associated with organizations that want to send a message replete with spurious data.

There is no way that the result means anything other than that the survey was conceived to obtain a result.

There is a never-ending succession of these purportedly objective studies that pop up and spread throughout the media as fact when they're twaddle.

And this is twaddle.
