    update on Stop NRA poll.

    looks like they didn't like the results so deleted a lot of pro NRA votes (about 10K IIRC). No surprise there. You can comment via email at their site if you wish, but it's probably a waste of time.

    Stop NRA! Do you agree or disagree with NRA gun policies?

    That must be how they got their 90% support gun control survey results too. "Scrub" the data until it tells you what you want to hear.

    30% +29%= 100%

    It's so obvious which side they removed... dirty stinkin liers.

    Typical libertard BS.

    When they don't get the results they want they change them to their liking.

    Now we need post 5his on every pro-gun site to keep voting & cache the poll results for later.

    Hopefully someone did that already so this lobotomy of anews organization gets their just deserts.

    Well, they may have scrubbed the results once, but like a bad penny, I just showed up again, and voted.

    Did it count?

    For now, it did.

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?
    Rats!
    It could be worse!

    Has anyone seen this survey showing the 90% support? I haven't. It would be interesting to see how the questions were phrased or even if the survey actually exists.

    They were losing about 63% in favor of NRA policies before.... looks like they reset the poll to "try again" .. now we're losing.

    Everyone needs to VOTE in the poll.

    If you look at the total votes it still says almost 30k but the result total is not even 20k...

    Not a math major but. ...

    Quote from the bottom of the page:

    "Tell congeries how we feel: VOTE NOW"

    Poll results show 29,270 total votes cast

    9530 Anti NRA 32.6%
    8741 Pro NRA 29.3%

    Gee, that makes for 11,000 votes missing? Sounds just like the last election!

    Here is my letter to their contact page...

    Copy of:

    This is an enquiry e-mail via Stop NRA! Do you agree or disagree with NRA gun policies? from:
    Tangoseal <------@yahoo.com>

    Seriously where did 10,000 votes go? And how does 30% + 30% = 100% of the votes?

    That tells me that you conveniently deleted 40% of the votes in favor of the NRA.

    So why are you wasting people's time?

    Dont respond to me, I dont want your filth to even hit my inbox.

    because folks on the forum and others are wsting everyones time by voting numerous times to screw up any accurate information.

    What do you want them to do...report that the vote was in favor of the NRA when you know that the voting was manipulated.

    I sent them a message. If you're going to just make up poll stats by deleting votes that don't go the way you want, then save the time and hassle and just make them up out of thin air.

    I only voted once the first time. Since I must assume my vote was canceled, possibly because of bring linked to from this site, I recast my ballot.

    All "voting" in most polls is skewed by the verbiage in the question anyway. Then there's sample size, demography, etc.

    However, a poll such as this one, is unscientific, anyway... And no demographic diversity is assured or assumed... They put up the poll in this manner, they need to accept the votes cast... No matter how many duplicate votes on one side or the other there may be... Either side can have over-zealous voters.

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?
    Rats!

    Since they reset it I voted again maybe if we all voted one time we'll have relatively honest results
