Poll results and the MSM
Where the heck is the MSM getting their poll results? Seems like
every night on the news we hear "75% of americans are in favor
of an assault weapons ban and magazine restrictions."

I've voted in a LOT of polls in the last month. The results of
every one of them is running 65-90% in favor of NO ban.

Is the MSM just flipping the results and hoping no one will notice?:confused:

I've been thinking about that very same thing! The only thing I could think of is that maybe for instance they are asking around that particular news outlet! Meaning that, assuming everyone working there is American, they could say 75% of Americans! Instead of 75% of Americans nationwide there is a difference, and it's always reported as the former instead of the later! Otherwise maybe through an obviously biased poll ie MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, etc

Don't believe in polls. Never did, never will. The system is rigged. All is rigged. Lotto, elections; rigged, rigged, rigged. :mad:

Last week on our local radio station they said 6 out of 10 Americans support gun laws. I was like Wtf.

The ONLY gun poll I ever saw, that was worth a lick, was the one the Blaze did... it wasn't misleading, it was a ton of straight up questions, and showed the percentages at the end.

These scum media polls are like this....

Q: Should Americans be able to buy laser guided rocket launchers?

A: No.

MOST Americans want strict gun laws!!!!!!!!

The MSM cherry picks the polling cross section in a liberal end of a dark blue city in a dark blue state. They don't manipulate the data they get they just focus on low information voters that couldn't tell you who the VP is or what a gun even is in most cases.
