I'm not speaking about simply questionig a premise and its link to a conclusion, I mean doubt a premise?

Is there answer to my question none?

You can accept GMAC premises as accurate, but don’t have to accept their link to conclusion. If question says 60% of population supports candidate A then consider it as a fact. If it says XX causes diarrhea, then accept that XX DOES cause diarrhea...and so on.

Most CR premises are stated as fact and there is no need to try to disprove the premise. Be aware, however, that some premises are opinions. These 'opinion' premises can be tricky because they can often be confused for the conclusion - see the example below...

A certain mayor has proposed a fee of five dollars per day on private vehicles entering the city, claiming that the fee will alleviate the city’s traffic congestion. The mayor reasons that, since the fee will exceed the cost of round-trip bus fare from many nearby points, many people will switch from using their cars to using the bus.
