36.6% Of Americans Of Normal Weight, The Rest Are Overweight Or Obese, Gallup Poll

More like a Waddle Poll - too fat to gallop.

Kudos, fatsos.
Just over one third of people in the USA are of normal weight, while 35.8% are overweight and 27.6% are obese, according to a Gallup Poll published on Friday. While in most countries these would be alarming figures, the pollsters see them as a promising sign - for the first time in three years the number of normal weight people is higher than the figure for people who are overweight (not including obese).

The surveyors telephoned 90,070 adults from July 1st to September 30th, and a similar number from April 1st to June 30th. The adults were selected randomly. Gallup says their overall margin of error is plus or minus 1%. There is also a possible 3.5% margin of error among the subgroups.
As if the fat people answered the poll truthfully.

Even if they did, too many people in the USA are too darned fat.

One poll does not a trend make.
