    •  Are background checks a wedge issue for 2014? (1+ / 0-)

      The Senate’s rejection of a popular expansion of background checks for firearms last month marked an abrupt end to the campaign for gun restrictions after the Newtown shootings. But the “no” votes of 46 senators also represented a political gamble: that voters would not punish them for going against public will.

      The risk may be significant, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll. Thirty five percent of registered voters say they could not support a candidate who voted against expanding background checks at gun shows and on the Internet — even if they agreed with him or her on other issues. By comparison, 14 percent of voters would rule out a candidate who voted for expanded checks.
