By giving two yes options (2nd amendment reference and only for self defense) they split the yes vote.

Definitely. I noticed this too. The poll is flawed exactly because of this.

Just voted - still showing 46%. Probably will show 46% regardless how many “yes” votes there actually are.

I've run into these types of polls before. No matter how long you keep tabs on it the overall results never change. I suspect they're nothing but click bait.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

MSNBC is probably even more corrupt and evil than CNN, and that is an enormous level to surpass as a comparison...I wouldn't participate in any poll they put out, they will twist and misrepresent the data. Mika and Morning Joe, the Lying-Loony-Left couple who thinks of Trump supporters and especially gun owners as lower than whale doodoo will misrepresent anything you put in MSNBC polls. Screw them.

The poll numbers must not have been what they wanted. The questions have been changed to just one: do you think people should be allowed to carry guns in public

Fwiw, i voted, but still registers 46%. The geniuses at msnbc probably dont understand there’s Concealed and open carry. “Only for self defense” choice??? How does anyone know “when” they’d have to defend themselves?? Hmm, that would be all the time, yes?

No, they understand. The yes vote was split by design IMO.

The answer "Only for self defense" is stupid, because that's the only reason TO carry a gun in public.
