A poll released Monday finds stark differences in partisan support for stricter gun laws in 2020, with a record high from Democrats and a record low from Republicans
The Gallup findings suggest views on gun regulation became increasingly polarized during this year’s election season.
According to the poll, just 22 percent of Republicans support stricter gun laws, compared to 85 percent of Democrats.
The results, from a telephone survey of a sample of 1,035 adult U.S. residents between Sept.30 and Oct. 15, have a margin of error of 4 percent.
Although Republicans have historically been in favor of the Second Amendment and Democrats in favor of increased gun regulation, the 63-point difference between the two parties is the “highest on record” in the past 20 years, according to Gallup. [full article]
