Challenging Pretty Silly Poll Questions With Your Own Pretty Silly Poll Questions

The AAJ/ATLA doesn't like the polling that the Chamber of Commerce does on litigation issues, so it's done its own (press release/results here [PDF]).  But -- quelle surprise -- those questions might not be the most neutral ones ever, either.

On balance, the AAJ one seems slightly better than the Chamber's (which I criticized here).  But both polls, as I mentioned in that previous post, seem less convincing than the responses to open-ended questions, where litigation issues rarely (if ever) make it into people's top ten concerns.
