Political survey is biased | Letter

The Reporter survey on PAC contributions to political campaigns is biased and does not provide the necessary information needed to pass judgement. There are too many general statements without explanations.
A recent ruling by the Supreme Court clarified the corporate role of what they can and cannot do. I believe it also pertains to unions. At least recent rulings have forced unions to identify how much of their dues go for political purposes. I believe members now have the option of not contributing their money for political purposes as part of their membership dues.
The reason for the survey and how the questions are worded do not explain the background for the questions. They need to be identified. If not, then the survey is nothing more than unsubstantiated political poppycock designed to sway voters.
