My Mayor has an online poll - the questions are tilted to get the answers he wants.

    What is the problem with this poll? I can see that a lot of people have a problem with the mayor himself, and his policies, but this poll appears to be an attempt at being humorous. And to be fair, he did give a lot of choices in his "what would disturb your meal more" question.

    I don't see a problem with the poll. If you couldn't tell from the pictures (especially like the pink knit umm... glock-cozy?.. the one in the above post), this was meant to be funny.

    I suspect Mr. Mayor is playing with the poll just to make the results reflect his anti gun stand.

    I would bet the poll results are being skewed by some anti in the mayor's office.

    It honestly is the first gun poll I have ever seen us lose.

    Yeah I remember responding to this poll and we were winning by a large majority. Now it seems like several questions have had their results played with to make it seem more even.

    Actually, it appears 4 of them either weren't too smart, or don't care what it really means.

    That looks more to me like a S&W.

    Looks like either anti's have come in locust swarms to that poll, or, someone in the mayor's crack-gang is skewing the poll.
    Looks like pro-gun is losing the "battle". That is, if you feel it is an honestly run poll.
    Oh! Wait! This is a poll generated by a politician. Silly me...Using the word "honestly" when talking about a politician. DOH!

    There was recently a news story about a hapless hunter who shot a deer and was then attacked by the thought-to-be-dead animal. Whose side are you on?

    The Hunter?
    The Deer?

    What the hell does that have to do with Gun Control?

    Hmmm.... Seems to me that 45% of the voters don't have guns in their house, but then it also seems that 91% of them do... This poll has pretty obviously been tampered with.
