Poll: Majority Of Americans Not Interested In Gun Control For 2016

posted on July 2, 2015
A new national poll finds that most Americans:

  • don’t believe gun control will prevent mass shootings (56 percent vs. 40 percent);
  • don’t expect Congress to pass stricter gun-control laws soon (53 percent vs. 15 percent); and
  • don’t want a debate over gun control in next year’s elections (52 percent vs. 43 percent).  

In the nationwide poll, Suffolk University and USA TODAY contacted 1,000 adults via cellular telephones and landlines in all 50 states June 25-29 and asked questions about topics ranging from gun control to the Confederate flag.

Although USA TODAY buried the bad news for gun grabbers in breathless coverage of the Confederate flag debate—and although Suffolk University downplayed Americans’ opposition to gun control by claiming they’re “divided”—it appears Americans’ views on the issue are clear and consistent. Leaders who ignore that fact do so at their own political peril.
