It's the Communist News Network. Does anyone here actually believe it would turn out in our favor?

I voted, but it's as useful as spitting in the wind.

Voted. But some part of me thinks the "Yes" vote numbers were "juiced" before the poll even started

Exactly right. I voted, fully expecting the end result to be what CNN wanted.

Common Guys!

Its CNN. Its a liberal leaning news network. Shouldn't you all know that even if the results aren't fixed that there are still likely to be more liberals voting on their site than say, Fox News? Its a bias poll simply because of where they are taking the poll from.

Not to say it couldn't be rigged...just be reasonable about your expectations from a liberal news source...

(It was too late to vote on this topic when I got there. They changed it to the repeal of Obama's health care plan.)

It is not just CNN! Need to add to the list of lefty rags - MSNBC, ABC, NBC (Regular Station), CBS, NPR, etc. From time-to-time, I and the wife will view what they are saying on the thrill section.

Yeah I wouldn't expect too much from CNN on our side, most news networks now days are trying to dupe people into following what they say is "right", and funny thing is a lot of people actually think what the person in the magic box is saying is the truth. Recently a guy in my state won the lottery of $180 million, took the money and paid the taxes, first thing the news did "you shouldn't take all the money to avoid paying taxes on it" and came out with an "action plan" chances are you will die before you see even $45 million.

Back the gun topic CNN's poll doesn't matter, what does matter is we voted to show them that we are here and that there are American's that wont lay down and take it.
