I was playing around on facebook and stumbled upon a couple polls that facebook uses have created. Now these are unsolicited polls who collect answers from everyone, not just registered voters so take them for what they are worth. I do feel they capture a good cross section of real Americans though so I would guess them to be fairly accurate to the feelings of the nation as a whole.
Also keep in mind that the numbers of people polled range from question to question. Some have thousands of responses while others have just a few hundred.
Note: The links may not work as I believe you must be registered with facebook to view them.
