Despite fevered claims by the mainstream media that voters are flocking to Democrats promising anti-gun laws in the wake of mass shootings in Buffalo, N.Y. and Uvalde, Texas, a new poll shows voters have shifted to Republicans.
When asked “Which political party — the Democrats or the Republicans — do you think would do a better job on gun policy?,” respondents to the latest Fox News poll split evenly with 47 percent siding with each party.
That’s a remarkable shift from 2018, when Democrats enjoyed a three-point 42 percent to 39 percent, and comes after a month of almost-open political campaigning by the mainstream media.
It also comes in a poll that gives Biden some of his highest recent approval ratings.
The poll finds just 12 percent of voters said gun policy would be the most important issue in determining their vote, far behind the 41 percent who made “inflation and higher prices” the top issue. It’s likely the 12 percent are almost entirely hardened partisans, meaning the issue won’t make much of a difference in the final vote.
In another blow to Democrats the poll found voters gave a one-point edge to Republicans, 46 percent to 45 percent, on the issue of “preservation of American democracy” – an issue Democrats are apparently staking their mid-term hopes for with heavily-hyped public hearings on the January 6 Capitol riots.
