RCGP members vote to maintain opposition to assisted dying


It is entirely unsurprising that the two surveys (Pulse and RCGP) give opposite results. Neither is statistically respectable. There is far too much self-selection of responders. If you want to do a survey with samples of 1.4% and 3.5% (Pulse and RCGP, respectively) then the sample has to be chosen with very great care. What would we think of the result of a parliamentary election where the turnout was just a few percent?
