Edit: mea culpa!!! I misread the question. Now I have to add at least a dozen votes to make up for my error!

Looks like the anti-gunners got a big head start on us!

81% to overturn vs. 19% to uphold. Time to hit the UPHOLD button!
Don't you have that backwards?

"Would you like to see the Supreme Court uphold or overturn D.C.'s gun ban?"

Read the question! It asks if the Supreme Court should UPHOLD the DC gun ban or overturn the ban. 83% at overturn the gun ban.

We're already winning handily, let's keep track of what we want here.

We want to OVERTURN the existing gun ban.

How long before NBC shuts the poll down? They are not in business to help folks like us.

The poll may go exactly the way we want. The majority wants the right to protect themselves. "Remember Katrina!"

88% now.:cool2:

Still 88%, but I do not like the way the question is worded, "Would you like to see the Supreme Court uphold or overturn D.C.'s gun ban?", it should read " Uphold the decision of the court to overturn D.C.'s gun ban. Some po folks might get confused.

It's up to 89% now, kept going back and voting again, back arrow, vote, back arrow, vote, and it's still at only 289 for the opposition.

Vote early and vote often:cool2::gunsmilie:

It appears to note your IP address when you vote.

Which means you can only vote once (unless you change your IP).

So it probably isn't worth your time to vote more than once.

Unless it makes you feel better. Therapy comes in many forms.

The question posed is essentially: Should SCOTUS overturn DC's Gun Ban? The vote right now is overwhelmingly towards overturning the ban. "Uphold" means that SCOTUS rejects the decision of the Court of Appeals and finds the ban somehow Constitutional. The unscientific poll is going the way it should...

I'm quite aware of that.
I voted earlier today.

What I was talking about was the sudden shift from 95% this afternoon to 90% this evening.

The anti's "mobilized" and picked up 5 percentage points. :D

Ahhhhhh. Now I understand the reference. Last time I'd checked, it was something like 86% for us... so, I was unaware of the shift towards the 95% level until you mentioned it.

Thanks!:D

Just voted and the poll shows 90% FOR overturning the DC ban.

Now, what would be really interesting is to see how NBC actually reports on the results of this poll, or whether they just quietly ignore it because it does not match their agenda.

I think it's funny how every time these polls pop up, the anti's get their, ah, hats handed to them. I mean, sure, gunnies probably vote early and often in those polls. But I'm guessing the antis do the same, so if their position was so popular no way should be we winning by the margins that we do, or even winning at all for that matter.

It really is a fringe element in our society that thinks the people ought not be allowed to keep and bear arms. We've got way more than our fair share of those fringe lunatics here in California, but for the most part US citizens seem to be able to read and comprehend the Constitution (when they bother to do so) better than a lot of judges and politicians.

Or jerry-mander the results to their liking - i.e. lie through their teeth...
