Well, to me, people who don't care are indifferent. It isn't a big enough deal to them to be pro or con. They could go either way depending on their personal circumstances.
It is more unlikely that people are fully converted with the current state of affairs for 3D. Which is why I argue that there should be a full force combined effort by the CEs and MPAA to succeed. The current divides only accentuate the strides 3D needs to take to fully convert those who are on the fence.
Isn't there a "full force" now? Look at what has happened in the last 12 months (Feb 2010 to Feb. 2011):
1. More then 2 CEMs offerring 3DTVs
2. Universal ASGs from 2 CEMs
3. FPR passve glasses 3DTVs from 2 CEMs
4. 25 3D BDs released for public consumption
5. ESPN 3D
7. Comcast's 3D channel
8. 3D PPVs from CBL and DTV.
What are you expecting for a years time from launch?
Also, those who don't care either way should not be considered on the fence. If they are that is another agenda in effect.
LOL! Maybe you do but then again, that would be your agenda showing.
Saying you don't care one way or the other means "I don't care if 3D drops off the face of the planet, life would go on."
It can also mean that if 3D increases, they will be indifferent to it. They are sitting on the fence. They haven't decided one way or the other.
That is not an agenda, it is reality. I merely combined the stats as to not paint the figures in a rosier light than they are. 75% of the market, based on that article either could care less or hate 3D.
LMAO! Reality .. . . according to YOU!
There were three different categories:
Don't care 22.2%
LOL - I could play Devil's Advocate and say that 47.3% are for 3D just doing the same thing you did - changing the definition of the "don't care" category.
I know I would be wrong in doing that but you think you are right in doing it. And that is where your agenda comes out.
It would be a hell of a reach to combine the 22.2% and the for @ 25%. More than my "agenda" would seem to attempt to bring to light.
Just like it's a "hell of a reach" to add that 22.2% to the 52.7%. But you seem to have no problem doing that.
Two polls, same questions, just different points in time. The first in May of 2010, the second in February 2011. And in that short period of time, we have seen a 6% increase in the number voting for HERE TO STAY.
So what will the next poll look like in November 2011?
