Duke’s student newspaper, The Chronicle, polled at its website on the question:
Do you agree with the ex-lacrosse players' decision to file a federal civil rights lawsuit?Respondents were given a “Yes” or “No” choice.
The poll, of course, is unscientific.
That acknowledged, as of 10 P.M. Eastern tonight, 91% percent of respondents said, “Yes.”
That left 9% of respondents saying, “No.”
A friend and member of the Medical School faculty offered this interpretation of poll results so far:
“It’s hard to say anything about the 91%.
The rest? The 9%?
I’ll guess they’re trustees, administrators and A&S faculty.
Who else would say those kids shouldn’t sue?”
