Newsmax pole. If this a dupe sorry, but I didn't find it. Question 3 seems to indicate some misunderstanding among respondents.




Edited to add: OK I'm an idiot!

Please do recall that online polls are for the benefit of the web sites, driving up page views to sell advertising.

Indeed. Also I would like to point out that this one requires an email address...which you will need to then verify before you see any poll results.

Last time I voted on one of their polls, my spam folder filled with email from them. Never again.

This is why I keep a spoof e-mail account for things like this.

The poll results don't make sense.

It's like the same people saying that congress shouldn't regulate guns are voting that congress should ban semi-autos.

Is Newsmax re-arranging the results or are people really that dumb?

So it asks if you're in the NRA and then asks for you're email address. Uhm ya, nice try there. No thanks.

Aside from spam from this company, what does it matter if they know you're an NRA member AND have your email addy?

What is there to be paranoid about?
