    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:

    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.

    I don't think the MSM has told the real truth, about anything, in years - if ever.

    They way I heard there are three degrees of lies, each worse than the one before "First there are lies, then there are damned lies, then there are statistics".

    Of course we all know that 75% of all statistics used by the MSM and others are made up 67% of the time.

    What about Fox News? Seems like they would have polls that go the other direction like they did in the last election. But then again, getting a true picture of politics from Fox News is like getting a true picture of the Holocaust from Hogan's Heroes.

    I don't listen to them either, both sides are playing us, nothing smells right from either side, except to and for the elites on either side! The rest of us are just the pawns in their game!!!!
