"... feelings the poll may be a futile exercise"

Not futile at all - just intended to serve a different purpose.

The same is detectable in most surveys - they typically reinforce the preconceptions of the setters of the survey rather than reflecting the real views of the respondents, the purpose being to convince the powers that be that everything is fine, rather then to drive change.

This is called "human nature".
