A question of morality

I'll explain the context of this later, including where I found these questions. For now, just take a gander at the poll.



Poll #264460 Slight Morality Quiz

The railroad trolley you're riding on will kill five railroad workers unless you flip a switch. That will send the trolley down another track and only kill one worker.

Flip the switch and kill one worker.
24(82.8%)
Don't flip the switch and allow five workers to die.
5(17.2%)

You see a railroad trolley bearing down on five unsuspecting workers. If you do nothing, they will die. There is a huge, fat many standing next to you. If you push him in front of the trolley he will die, but the five will live.

Push the man and kill him.
16(55.2%)
Don't push the man and allow the five to die.
13(44.8%)
