Another goofy CNN quick poll.

I continually wonder who writes these CNN quick polls. Todays is:

"Are you worried global warming will affect you?"

Not sure what this means. Does it mean I should vote yes or no if I think global warming is affecting me, but that I'm not worried about it? And what if I do worry, but my worry is insignificant? (IOW, I worry, but think I am powerless to do anything about it, so I take no action.)

How could this be reworded so as to convey usable information? "Do you think global warming will affect you?" "Have you changed anything in your life to react to global warming?"
