I’ve just closed the week 2 polling and the results are above.
In week 1 while there was a significant split between respondents, the polling leaned clearly toward people being more positive about STAP stem cells. In week 2 polling that lean has largely disappeared leaving an almost perfectly divided response and “on the fence” has risen quite a bit from week 1.
It’s also notable that respondents from Japan have shifted the most in opinion. In week 1 they were disproportionately positive, while in week 2 they became disproportionately negative.
Again, this is not scientific polling, but I still think the results are meaningful in a general sense.
I’m going to start week 3 polling in a bit.
