    We are still winning! 95% now. This poll will never see the light of day once it's over.

    This poll has been passed around several gun boards. The reason we're at 95% is because of that.

    Of course it has, so? Just let me enjoy a poll that swings my way for a change.

    Why is there not an option to vote for reducing gun control?

    True...

    But it IS PBS, so.. it would be safe to assume that the anti's have had their fair shot at passing it around whatever resources they use.

    and we're still kicking butt.

    Not only that but it's showing some level of organization among gun advocates who will hopefully vote mid-term elections.

    Looks like it, still at 95% to leave gun laws as they are

    I still say it's showing a unified group of people even if it's skewed. The antis cruise the PBS sight more than us and they can't keep up?

    It's a completely meaningless poll because it's an internet poll.

    This has as much statistical validity as sticking your finger in the wind.

    Does anyone NOT grasp the difference between ACTUAL polling and a self-selecting group of anonymous internet people?

    Yup. They call it "poll skewing." When there is an unsupervised internet poll like this, folks get together to skew the results by overwhelmingly voting one way by agreement. It's not a way to gauge public opinion, but it is a way for the pollers to mine the data of those who vote. So those of you who voted? Congratulations. Your spam email will increase.

    That was my exact thought when I read the options. Where is the button to get rid of the stupid laws (like most of them)?

    Well, "our" lead is down to 94% now. Need to find some other IP's to vote from I guess.

    Thought this back and forth on the comment section of the poll was kinda funny.


    Carl Christensen•4 hours ago−







    This spurious poll has been "freeped" by right-wing nutjobs from freerepublic.com et al, and is statistically useless - it's worse than the old "Dewey Beats Truman" polls...





    Law-abiding Larry> Carl Christensen•an hour ago







    Kinda sucks, huh Carl? I actually found the link to this "spurious" poll on an anti-gun facebook page. Gun control just isn't as popular as you were misled to believe it is. A few radical liberals do not speak for the American people.....period.
