When you are taking a poll to find out what the community thinks about
something, it matters a great deal if the results come out 48% for,
42% against, 10% abstained/undecided/don't care or if you get 6% for,
4% against 90% abstained/undecided/don't care. You mustn't take a
vote with the assumption that 'only people who care matter'. Those
that do not care have not automatically lost their franchise.
