Another meaningless poll

Poll question: "If you thought that Judge Alito, if confirmed, would vote to make abortions illegal, would you favor or oppose his confirmation?"

Do you see any problems with this question? If not, go back 11 years and consider this hypothetical question: "If you thought thought that Judge Breyer, if confirmed, would vote to let criminals free based on legal technicalities, would you favor or oppose his confirmation?"

If you still don't get my point, go here. (And remember, I'm pro-choice and don't favor overturning Roe v. Wade. But a BS poll question is a BS poll question, regardless of the slant.)
