It was a telephone poll, so they probably phoned people at home, who
would probably be reasonably healthy.

Sick people at any age are generally not too happy with the way life

(On the other hand, I have heard good stories about hospice care for
the terminally ill).
So I agree that my comments assume old age and good health.
