Looking at the data it seems like the data come from the following:

* Very important to have
* Somewhat important to have
* Not important either way
* Somewhat important not to have
* Very important not to have
* Don't know what this is
Given those options I have a hard time seeing that people putting
"Very important not to have" should be bundled together with "Somewhat
important to have" =)
Looked in the survey_data file and the break down for the two types of
responses looks like this:
490 419 Very important to have
1024 712 Somewhat important to have
2282 1266 Not important either way
336 327 Somewhat important not to have
157 166 Very important not to have
488 280 Don't know what this is
I am worried that a good portion of the people outside of "Don't know
what this is" actually does not now what it is, most of them are
indifferent to them.
