Before last night’s House vote on the debt agreement President Obama reached with congressional leaders, a plurality of those responding to a question on Facebook favored a yes vote by their own member of Congress vote.
In all, 1,415 Facebook users responded to that question in an unscientific survey conducted by the social-networking site for NBC News.
The results: 46% said they wanted their member of Congress to vote for the deal, while 28% wanted their member to vote no.
In a second question, answered by 1,506 respondents, 51% said they relied most on television coverage for learning about the debt crisis. Nine percent said they relied mostly on newspapers while 8% said talk radio and 6% said they relied on their friends to keep them informed. Twenty six percent said they relied on other sources.
