The survey presented is specifically:
"Preferences of physician-participants for treatment given a scenario of irreversible brain injury without terminal illness"

That survey result isn't a surprise and is fairly reasonable.

Aren't the outcomes for younger people without significant prior medical problems a lot better than average? 

It is my understanding that quality of life post-CPR is related to pre-CPR quality of life. In other words, if you were otherwise healthy pre-CPR then your odds are pretty decent, but if you were in poor health beforehand then you're probably going to be in bad or worse shape.
