Politico and Morning Consult jointly conducted a poll asking if the majority of their audiences support arming teachers after the mass shooting that occurred at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
It ran for five days and the results were 50% in favor and 42% opposed. Surprising coming from these sources.
From the same poll voters support protecting American’s right to own guns over “limiting gun ownership” by a margin of 46% to 42%; slimmer than the one before.
Breitbart News reported this Tuesday that a Rasmussen survey proved more Americans blamed government, not guns, for the Florida school shooting.
Fifty-four percent of Americans believe government failure is to “blame for the mass shooting,” according to Rasmussen, while just 33% of Americans point the finger at guns.
There was an 11% minority who said they didn’t know who was to blame for the Florida mass shooting.
If you filter the group of people taking the poll to include only those “who have children of elementary or secondary school age,” the percentages change drastically; 61% believing it was government’s failure, while only 23% blame guns.
