Rasmussen: Majority Opposes Unilateral Action On Gun Control

posted on January 11, 2016

A poll released by Rasmussen Reports indicates that 58 percent of respondents designated as “Likely U.S. Voters” think that President Barack Obama should act in accordance with the wishes of Congress instead of going it alone on gun control. Only 39 percent thought it was appropriate for the president to act independently of Congress on this area of policy.

A mere 21 percent think that the president’s executive action will be effective at reducing the number of mass shootings in the country, with 59 percent disagreeing and 20 percent unsure. Despite the acclaim for the executive orders common in the mainstream media, it appears that most Americans are uncomfortable with the president acting unilaterally—and very few expect positive results.
