Something about percentage

I am never get too excited when someone tries to prove his/her point by stressing how many other people support it. Too many dumb decisions and upheavals happened in history just because a majority was supportive of a very bad idea or, at least, indifferent to the outcome of one.

So it doesn't impress me much when I read this:

Survey by the Rafi Smith Polling Institute finds only 38% of the public believes Kfir Brigade Sgt. Elor Azaria should stand trial for shooting a neutralized terrorist in Hebron.
I hope that Bibi, who is usually so sensitive to the result of the latest poll(s), will let the justice run its course.

That will be all.
