That overwhelming 8% majority

See that "Most believe retirement is over" link on the right?

When you click on it, you get the article on the left.

Which says that fully 8% of people expect never to retire.

I know that the definitions of some words are variable, and subjective, and that reasonable people can disagree even on the meaning of "majority". The US Senate certainly does.

But it's rather difficult to stretch the definition of "most" to mean 8% of people.
