Public Opinion on the Shiavo Case

In the midst of the intense coverage of the last few days, here's an ABC poll that finds that 63% of those surveyed support the removal of Terri Shiavo's feeding tube, and that 60% oppose federal intervention. When asked about their own wishes, 78% said that they would not want to be kept alive in this condition.
The heavy coverage of this issue has prompted half of those surveyed to discuss with their families what they would want done in similar circumstances.
