Default Online Surveys on 2A

We've seen survey after survey after survey where the public supports 2A...

And yet the media keeps reporting that the public supports gun controls

Here's one survey that says we don't support 2A

And yet just a few short days before it showed

What the hell, just flip the results if they don't agree with your pre determined conclusion!

Our union voted down the last two contracts. The union's response.... vote again. Both times. Vote until we get the desired result.

I've got one for ya...
Firm I work for had low employee satisfaction scores. How do you address that? We made it part of everyone's bonus program -- if the scores don't go up they will lose money! LOL

That is pretty low.

All polls are skewed by who the selected audience is. A conservative group will vote one way, while a poll directed at Inner City Democrats will work another.

Who was it that said, there are liars, damn liars, and statisticians!

In my house poll 67% favor no registration, modern sporting rifles and unlimited magizine bans. Every time. If my son comes around it will be 100%

This had nothing to do with skewing for an audience. The data was nefariously changed to match a desired outcome.

The lines are offset. The poll tracks the first one until the very end if you pay very close attention to where trhe lines are drawn.

Polls are no longer the reliable 'weathervanes' of old, nor the barometers of today's index. Polls are of the same fodder in nourishing your soil.

If you pay close attention to the results of this survey, you will realize how slanted it is.

Look at the percentage of respondents that are a member of the NRA.....
If the survey was valid, it would have shown that the Non-Members would have been the vast majority of respondents, to reflect the actual population.

NRA membership is about 2% of the adult population of the US. If the survey had been honest, then only 2% of the respondents would have been NRA members.

With sufficient funding, I could have a statistician design a poll that's results would reflect that a majority of Americans believed that the moon was made of blue cheese. The poll designer might have to survey a majority of Americans that were residents of looney bins, but it is possible.

You have to apply some critical thought to the information you are given.

There have been numerous surveys done on liberal websites as well. They usually show at least 70%-100% appose bans, regulation, and any new gun control.

Almost every survey I have see so far as said the same thing. The vast majority of Americans appose more gun control.
