    Three people injured by guns in one day seems like small potatoes when compared to the couple of hundred killed each day in vehicular accidents.

    That's because there are about 120 million drivers and 4 million gun owners.

    There are over 200 million licensed drivers in the US as of 2009 and the number of households with guns is easily 10x what you've shown. I suggest you check your facts or provide references for your data.


    Here's the government numbers on US drivers:
    http://www.census.gov/compendia/stat...es/12s1114.pdf

    Since there is no national gun registration I doubt there is hard evidence for the number of gun owners from Uncle Sam. But if this data is even close to right there are well over 2 million gun owners in my state alone and we're almost halfway down the list:

    Polls, as someone told me are a 'snapshot' in time. Also, the internals matter, I notice your link doesn't provide those....Wonder why....

    Thanks for that, however, it still doesn't show the breakdown of who was sampled ie: how many demo's, how many indy's, how many conservatives, as well as how they answered.....My guess is that demo's/liberals were over sampled by as much as 9% skewing the poll, and further the question asked makes a difference.

    Rove was an idiot, but the oversampling is a problem...The only reason it isn't more of one is because the American people are fickle, and change their minds often. Another thing that is of course just my opinion, but none the less I think relevant is how these polls are being used by today's media outlets, that are in the tank for this president to start with.
