I hate these YouTube presentations that don’t give sources! I’d take the Facebook one with a very large pinch of salt – according to this site ( there are 94m Americans on Facebook, so from a population of 300m or so I don’t know where they get to 77%.
As I say, i hate these videos (& presentations) that don’t give sources!
