In February 1998, U.S. President Bill Clinton was under investigation for allegedly having had an extramarital affair. A Gallup Poll asked the following two questions: “Do you think most presidents have or have not had extramarital affairs while they were president?” and then “Would you describe Bill Clinton’s faults as worse than most other presidents, or as no worse as most other presidents?” For the first ques­tion, 59% said “have had,” 33% said “have not,” and the remaining 8% had no opinion. For the second question, 24% said “worse,” 75% said “no worse,” and only 1% had no opinion. Do you think the order of these two questions influenced the results? Explain.
