How many Americans are registered organ donors?

Reuters reports that according to a recent poll by Harris Interactive, half of the adults in the United States say they have registered as an organ donor.

Humphrey Taylor, chairman of Harris Interactive, said he is not totally convinced by the poll's figures: "We know that when we do surveys like this, more people claim to have done the right thing than do the right thing. I think if half of all U.S adults really had registered, we would be in much better shape than we are, so I am skeptical on those numbers."

It's too bad the poll didn't ask those who said they had not registered as organ donors two more questions: "Would you be willing to accept an organ transplant should you ever need one?" and "Why on earth should anyone donate an organ to you if you're not willing to return the favor?"
