From Talking Points Memo:
The latest national survey from Quinnipiac University confirmed something that’s been widely evident in the months since the massacre in Newtown, Conn.: Support for universal background checks is pretty much, well, universal. According to the poll, 91 percent of American voters support background checks for all gun buyers, while a mere 8 percent said they are opposed. The poll also showed 88 percent of gun owners in favor of universal background checks — a point Obama seemed to allude to while stumping Wednesday in Denver to drum up support for the White House’s gun proposals.http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/...
“There doesn’t have to be a conflict between protecting our citizens and protecting our Second Amendment rights,” Obama said. “I’ve gotten stacks of letters from proud gun owners, whether they’re for sport, or protection, or collection, who tell me how deeply they cherish their rights, and don’t want them infringed upon — but they still want us to do something to stop the epidemic of gun violence.”
Public support for universal background checks has been undeniably consistent for months, even as the National Rifle Association and some Republicans continue to express misgivings about the proposal. In March, Quinnipiac showed 88 percent of the public and 85 percent of gun owners favoring universal background checks. February’s poll from Quinnipiac showed 92 percent of voters overall and 91 percent of gun owners expressing support for universal background checks.
We're winning this thing, folks. By outrageously high numbers. Keep up the good fight. The NRA/GOP's wet dream is that they can demoralize us. No can do -- not with numbers like that. Cheers.
