    It's like someone on the street
    loudly complaining that the system of government is wrong to a pollster
    asking who you're gonna vote on the next election.

Exactly.  That person is aware that the poll will give a false picture
of where he stands, no matter how he answers.  Imagine a Green Party
supporter facing a survey that asks him to answer from 0 to 10, where
0 means Republican and 10 means Democrat, and that asks him to rate
various proposed methods to keep the price of fossil fuel low.
