Just seen a survey on RTP 3 about the Covid 19 and they surveyed people about mask wearing,social distancing and the vaccines.
What they don't tell you is how many people were surveyed,what age group they were in and where the survey was carried out.
If you survey 10 people who have been taken in by all this rubbish then of course you will get the results you want then multiply that by 10 and their is your percentage.all this is doing is feeding the media bull sxxt.
Try surveying under 21 year olds and see what result you get.
Their are lies,damned lies and statistics.
Need I say more.
