Yes, after reading the results, I realized how broad that selection can include. I took it as "Everybody actively helping Voldemort, not simply supporters and people providing supplies and other resources." The group did seem smaller than I expected, though.

It's my personal theory, presented by someone else, that there's an inner circle of supports who are called Death Eaters and who get the mark. They're the ones we saw in the graveyard. He has many others, but they aren't as trusted. There has to be more than what we've seen, because how could even thirty wizards terrorize all of Britain?
