    is remarkably influential on polling outcomes.  The headlines touting the results are seldom subtle.

      be in this poll. It is a choice that people can make. So, this poll doesn't have bias. The polls without the word "choice" like the WSJ / NBC poll out recently have response bias because they omit this word-skewing their results.
