  2. It’s not really that 64% of respondents say “No”, but that the tug-of-war which is the market is currently oscillating around the 64% mark. At any time someone could get a heavyweight on their end of the rope and move the market to a new equilibrium point. But “No” has been mostly between 60% and 70% for awhile now, so that’s a pretty good indication of where the market thinks it should be.
