I figured you'd score, it's easy to anyone with an interest, but having talked to hundreds if not more people lately I realize that most have a very shallow knowledge base on which to form opinion. Usually they get the cart before the horse, opine first, know second, if at all.

The statistical results aren't very reasuring.

Best chart is down the bottom.
