A plan by national Democrats to run on so-called “gun reform” appears to have backfired as the latest Fox News survey shows independent voters back Republicans on the issue by a shocking margin.

Weeks after President Joe Biden signed into law a sweeping “gun safety” bill Democrats predicted would win them broad voter support, the survey finds independent voters believe Republicans would do a better job of handling gun policy by a 21 percent margin, 56 percent to 35 percent.

Even among Americans who described their views as “moderate” Republicans were preferred 49 percent to 45 percent on gun policy.


Independent voters Democrats have lost once-large leads on traditionally liberal issues

>> Along independents, Republicans lead 50 percent to 39 percent on “the future of American democracy”

>> Along independents, Republicans and Democrats are tied at 45 percent on education, traditionally a strong Democrat issue

>> Along independents, Republicans and Democrats are tied at 45 percent on education, traditionally a strong Democrat issue

>> Along independents, Democrats lead by just 49 percent to 41 percent on “climate change”

>> Along independents, Democrats lead by just 49 percent to 42 percent on abortion

Forty-one percent of voters named “inflation and higher prices” as the single most important issue in determining their vote.  Among independents Republicans lead on that issue by a 58 percent to 30 percent margin.

Overall, Republicans and Democrats are tied at 41 percent on which party Americans plan to support in the midterm congressional elections.  Fox News reports that figure would result in a large gain of Republican seats, as more Democrats seats are drawn to be reliably Democrat.
