Poll: Republicans Would Rather Actually Be Shot by Gun Than Agree with Obama



WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—A day after President Obama held a nationally televised town hall about guns in America, a new poll shows that a majority of Republicans would rather actually be shot by a firearm than agree with him.

In an indication of the challenges facing the President in persuading Republicans, those surveyed named a wide variety of specific guns that they would choose to be personally shot by rather than seeing eye to eye with Obama.

When asked to state their preference, forty-three per cent stated "handgun," twenty-seven per cent replied "shotgun," twenty-one per cent responded "assault rifle," while only two per cent named "agreeing with Obama."

The poll results are reminiscent of a poll taken last month about climate change, in which a majority of Republicans said they would rather see their habitat destroyed by rising sea levels than agree with President Obama.
