FORTUNE -- I'm not sure where Meet the Press' David Gregory was going with this, but NBC is reporting the results of his survey of smartphone use in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Unsurprisingly, given Apple's (AAPL) share of the U.S. smartphone market, especially among wealthier Americans, is that the iPhone at 58% is the clear favorite on both sides of the aisle.

MEET THE PRESS RECEIVED RESPONSES FROM 88 PERCENT OF HOUSE MEMBERS -12 PERCENT (51 MEMBERS) DECLINED TO PARTICIPATE OR DID NOT RESPOND.
