9. Okay, cool. But it's 538, begun in '08. Who rates 538? 538!

In the 3rd largest country on the planet, Gallup has the largest sampling and longest running experience.

Polling statisticians learned from Gallup before statistics was even a course at college levels.

I stand by Gallup for reliability.

Doesn't mean that other polls aren't useful and accurate.

But Gallup, Pew and Reuters are the polls that come closest to representing public opinion.

Anyone can find any poll to back up his/her opinion.

But when it comes to the issue of guns, parties, states and regions aren't the way to determine what the public thinks is in its best interests. Big polls are.

Here's one from 538 on guns. Cuz what the hell. Information is information.
