When Rhode Islanders were polled on whether they support allowing the medical use of marijuana, Mirken said, 69 percent said they favored it with 26 percent saying they didn’t. But when those same people were asked if they think a majority of people in the state support it, 26.5 percent said yes and 55.9 percent said no.

How does it come to pass that the majority believes they are the minority? Well, how do people get their information, and why would those sources of information either be uninterested in this information or unwilling to say it?
