Nevada Poll: Voter Opposition To Question 1 Growing

posted on October 28, 2016

This week, the Las Vegas Review-Journal released poll results showing that the number of Nevada voters who oppose Question 1—a Michael Bloomberg-funded ballot initiative that would mandate so-called “universal” background checks—is growing. 

In early October, the publication surveyed 800 likely voters and found that 58 percent supported Question 1, while 32 percent were opposed. However, in the most recent poll, support for the measure has fallen to 54 percent, while opposition rose 6 points to 38 percent. 

In an interview with the Review-Journal, Question 1 opposition group Nevadans for Freedom’s campaign manager, Robert Uithoven, said the poll results show awareness campaigns highlighting the dangers of passing such an onerous and unnecessary law are working. 

“We believe that as Nevada voters take to the polls … they will take time to understand the consequences of Bloomberg’s Question 1 gun-control initiative,” Uithoven said. “This poorly written law, financed by an out-of-state billionaire, will land many law-abiding Nevadans in jail, and it won’t keep our communities safer.”
