    Polls, Have you been polled?

    They spout all these numbers. Anyone ever actually been polled about this or even know anyone who has?

    They spout things like percentages of NRA members...maybe I missed the question but I don't remember being asked if I was for or against anything.

    According to Gallop, only 4% think gun control is an issue. NOT 90%. I kinda wonder how Obama got that wrong.

    I have never been polled. But I have made sure my Senator knew my stance. The only poll that counts. He voted my way in the end. So I have to assume I am with the majority that he heard from.

    I personally chose to take part in an NRA poll.

    I have not been polled for gun control or gun rights.

    I have been polled repeatedly for other politcal topics.

    If they were to "poll" gun owners, they wouldn't get the results they desire.

    I'm pushing 60 years old and have never been questioned by a pollster, guess that means I don't count.

    Nope, never been polled either. The polling that the antis seem to refer to is one that was done by Quinnipiac Univ, which focuses on a handful of states, like CT, and NY and does random phone calls. As I neither live in one of the states that they poll, nor would I accept a call (undoubtedly with a blocked caller ID), it is unlikely that I would *ever* be polled by such an organization. However, this little outfit, with a staff of 10, somehow managed to determine that 90% of the people in the nation support this abomination of legislation for gun rights restrictions.

    I've been polled once about 20 years ago by some socialist POS, I told him the facts and what I thought, he must not have liked my answers they've never called back.
