I couldn't make out the meaning of this sentence when I saw it in Google

> Sixty percent of Americans do, surveys show, and 20 percent think
> aliens live among us disguised as humans.

When going to the page [ http://goo.gl/r44RG ], I realized that there
was another sentence that did not show up in the abstract:

> Think there’s life on other planets?

So the other sentence was answering the question... It still looks odd
to me, even though now I know what it is saying.
