    That's funny. They had a slightly different poll up a few days ago. I guess they didn't like the results they got from that poll.

    I voted against the ban as well. Did anyone else notice that the photo they chose is completely anti? No pro-guns signs in that picture.

    I'm thinking that's why the other was taken down. The one just worded a little different. There's no way they will actually publish results like this.

    Hit it, but it won't let me see results, but I saw the total vote count go up.

    I noticed that when they originally ran their article on the protest. I noticed a similar trend after the ODU protest. I watched the 3 or 4 news report videos, and while most of the actual coverage was somewhat equal, every video was accompanied by a still shot of the antis and their signs. Despite the fact that the pro-gun rally was the main event and much larger, they hijacked the coverage to focus on the antis.

    We'll take the publicity however we can get it. The people (readers/listeners) are no longer blindly accepting of negative spin. They've heard the same old tired ditties so often before and found them false. We are winning - "they" are losing.

    I am sure this isn't the result they were looking for. 95% against the ban with 170 votes.
