Fox News poll: Most Americans more likely to vote against politicians who oppose background checks
As I’ve said here on numerous occasions, the public opinion polls commissioned by Fox News generally are trustworthy, no matter the network’s notorious bias in reporting the news.
The latest Fox poll is a GOOD EXAMPLE:
When an expansion of background checks for guns failed to pass the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, the president urged his supporters to vote background-check opponents out of office.
The new poll, released Tuesday, finds voters may heed the president’s call.
Some 61 percent say they would be less likely to support a candidate who voted against expanding background checks. That’s far greater than the 23 percent who are more likely to support such a candidate.
And, conversely, backing the measure could help a candidate: 68 percent say they are more likely to support a candidate who voted in favor of expanding background checks.
Even 60 percent of those living in a gun-owner household say they are more likely to support a candidate who voted for expanded background checks.
