Poll Watch: Rasmussen (R) Survey on Gun Control

Rasmussen (R) Poll on Gun Control 

Should there be a ban on the purchase of semi-automatic and assault type weapons?
  • Yes 55%
  • No 36%
National survey of 1,000 adults was conducted December 19-20, 2012. The margin of error is +/- 3 percentage points.

Inside the numbers: 
Most women favor a ban on the sale of semi-automatic and assault-type weapons. Men are evenly divided.
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Democrats and 52% of those not affiliated with either major party support a ban; 59% of Republicans do not.
Forty-three percent (43%) of those who have a gun in the family favor a ban on semi-automatic and assault-type weapons, compared to 69% of those in non-gun owning families.
