Leading Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton has gone “all-in” to make radical gun control a key focus of her 2016 Presidential run. The former First Lady said last Friday that “Australian-style” forced gun confiscation—something all but certain to trigger a civil war with up to 160 million American gun owners—was “worth considering.”
Three separate polls released today suggest that the elderly candidate has either grossly miscalculated the public’s views on gun control, or simply doesn’t care what Americans think about their constitutional rights.
Gallup and Wall Street Journal/NBC News polls released earlier today showed that Clinton has dug herself a deep hole.
A new CNN/ORC poll shows that that hole is filling back in… on top of her.
About half of all Americans oppose stricter gun control laws, a larger segment of the population than those who support tighter controls on guns,according to a new CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday.
Nearly three weeks after the latest mass shooting claimed the lives of nine people, 52% of Americans now oppose stricter gun control laws, 6% more than the 46% of Americans who support such laws. That’s a wider gap than in June when CNN last surveyed Americans on gun control, finding that the public was equally split at 49% on the issue.
The advantage of those opposed to stricter gun control laws over those in favor is outside of the poll’s 3-point margin of error.
We’ve been warning the leading Democrats for weeks that their dreams of gutting the Second Amendment was a road to ruin.
Fortunately for supporters of the Constitution, Clinton and the radical left seems intent on running on radical gun control anyway, which may doom the Democrat Party to a crushing 2016 defeat, and perhaps finish it as a major political party in the United States.
