37% now, with 228k total votes cast. I'm wondering how many votes have been cast in the less than 4 hours since RPBrown noted 75% in favor. I'm no mathematician, but for it to drop that quickly I'm thinking spam bots or a whole lot of people clearing their browser history to vote multiple times.

MSNBC has falsified the "poll." Numbers don't change that fast, especially on a Saturday.

There is no integrity left in the media and press. Can't believe polls as they are too easy to manipulate and skew. I bet someone figured out a bot or macro to generate votes.

As typical, the anti-gun and progressives outplayed the republicans, conservatives and libertarians. Our side manipulated the poll a couple of votes at a time by deleting cookies thinking it would have a significant impact. The other side figured out how to do in in mass. Outplayed again. :oops:

That's what I think and my bet is on MSNBC. It can be done easily with a keystroke logger. Go to the website, vote, leave t he website, delete MSNBC cookie, go to website, vote, repeat.

It's tough to compete and negotiate with those that have no morals, scruples or integrity. :mad5

Agreed. I can easily set up a small click farm to help skew it back in our favor, but no way am I going to stoop that low.

:roll: Why am I not surprised? It was 72% for when I voted. This is just another reason why MSNBC, CNN, and the rest of these fakers do not lighten my TV screens.

Same here - I just voted on my PC and it was about 36%.
Your number one option for personal security is a lifelong commitment to avoidance, deterrence, and de-escalation.
When those fail, aim for center mass.

There is something fishy. When I voted Friday evening there 70K plus votes recorded and we were at 74% I checked it Sat morning and it was over 240k plus and we were down to 34%. Just checked again and 1,645K votes but the good guys are up to 36% again. Yes the fix is in again just as expected. Everyone in their viewer base must have voted 100 times. Now they will make more fake news from their fake poll.

Can bots do this?

It's either that or PMSNBC has adjusted something.

"The secretive British spy agency GCHQ has developed covert tools to seed the internet with false information, including the ability to manipulate the results of online polls"

While I am definitely not saying the British did it, the technology to hack polls has been around for many years, and hacking (by MSNBC or others) clearly occurred in this poll.

You have to remember our gun-grabbing enemies like George Soros who literally thinks he is God are a multi-billionaires and are extremely busy.

Gun grabbers hate well armed, well trained, law abiding Americans. Nothing is gonna piss them off more than us getting more guns, ammo, training, and range time. Also get organized and join the NRA, TSRA, GOA or any number of the other 2nd Amendment rights organizations. :txflag:
