That poll doesn't really suprise me. In my own family there are only two of us that don't believe this is some big joke. That is until I sit down with my parents and showed them the math. It looks like this:
NORMAL FLU ANNUAL STATISTICS (using high end statistics)
Infected - 1 billion
Seriously Ill - 5 million or .5%
Deaths - 500,000 or .05%
SWINE FLU STATISTICS TO DATE (using confirmed cases only)
Infected - 148
Seriously Ill - unknown
Death - 8 or 5.4%
That is just a quick run down and I am sure others could do a much more detailed job with the statistics. It did make my mom watch the news more!

Worldwide swine flu cases continue to rise
updated 1 hour, 8 minutes ago
(CNN) -- The number of confirmed swine flu cases worldwide rose to 154, with six additional cases reported in Spain, the World Health Organization said Thursday.
Until now, the country had four confirmed cases.
Of the 10 cases of the H1N1 virus in Spain, nine were found in people who had returned from Mexico.
But authorities are troubled about the 10th case which they say is a case of community transmission, spread from one person in the community to another, said WHO spokesman Dick Thompson.
If Spain now sees more such cases of community transmission, the world body may have to elevate its pandemic alert another notch to its highest level.
Phase 6 is the pandemic phase and is characterized by a community-level outbreak in another country in a different WHO region.
