All you can say about this survey is that it reflects the population of people that actually took the survey not the average Catholic. I would bet if you polled the average Catholic at Sunday mass the statistics would be completely reversed.

I am reminded of a magazine that predicted Alf Landon would win the 1936 Presidential Election in a landslide based on their survey. The readership was staunchly Republican, and the survey reflected the views of the readship. We all know that Roosevelt won in a landslide.
