A look back at notable AOL.com polls from 2013

The last year was full of controversial, surprising and dramatic news -- from Starbucks changing its gun policy, to George Zimmerman's many misadventures with the law, to the Redskins coming under pressure to change the team name, and much more. A great deal of those stories and others elicited strong opinions from AOL.com users, and at times we posed questions to you about certain current events to take the temperature of our audience. Take a look back at how you and your fellow AOL.com users voted in some of our most notable polls of 2013.

I went to the Redskins games as a kid some 60 years ago. They are a legend and changing the name was not a issue until recently. I support Dan Snyder in his endeavors. DON'T CHANGE THE NAME.

leave the name alone, seems to be people need to complain about something, the name has been around for years and that is what we know the team by, maybe those who are complaining are looking at it the wrong way they are name named that to put the indians down or as degrading, I look at it because they are holding the indians up to higher standards.and all this politicaly correct BS, who is it that determines WHAT is the politicaly correct term anyway.

It's callewd "Dumbing Down America"!
A Media ploy to get Americans to concentrate on stupid stuff so they won't stay up to date with the Communist Govermnent slowly taking over our Government.
And they're almost done!
Socialism is her and we have a Marxist President.

Should the NAACP change their name from colored people. Should Notre Dame change their name from the Irish. Dah.

Good idea of yours. Some people go out of their way looking for ways to stir up s.... I am part Indian and I love the name. Those grippers should get a pet...like a bull dog.

i think the name should stay people who have negativism ingrained in them cant see the tribute to the American Indian here . They were a fantastic people and if you would take the time to check you would find out thatbthe Iroquois Cofederacy constitution is very similar to the one pur founding fathers drafted. They were aand still are a brave people that helped our country forge its future. I find the name a tribute the the spirit of the American indian and not drogatory at all

Do not change the name of the Washington Redskins, it is an honor for the Redskins, do not play to the politically correct crowd.
