Q Poll Shows Support For More Gun Control At All-Time High

President Trump is putting plans in place to push his tax reform through ahead of its House vote

Voters in gun households support a ban 51 - 43 percent. The margin of error was 3 percent.

Of voters who disapprove of Trump, 78 percent think the investigation will find crimes were committed. Ninety-one percent of voters support banning the sale of guns to people who have been convicted of a violent crime, 62 percent favor stricter regulation of ammunition sales, and 74 percent support banning modifications that can make semi-automatic firearms function more like a fully automatic weapon.

That was also a new high and up from March 2013, when 54 percent said they supported an assault weapons ban while 41 percent were opposed.

The percentages of people saying Trump was an intelligent and strong person also dropped back to all-time lows in the poll.

Frequently cited by journalists, public officials and researchers, the independent Quinnipiac University Poll regularly surveys residents in Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Iowa, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and nationwide about political races, state and national elections, and issues of public concern, such as schools, taxes, transportation, municipal services and the environment. The highest support for banning the so-called "bump stocks" came from the Northeast and in suburbs, at 81 percent each.


Fifty-nine percent of people polled believe it's too easy to purchase a gun in the country.

Almost six out of 10 people surveyed by Quinnipiac said it is too easy to buy a gun in the United States.

"President Donald Trump returns from his big Asia trip to find numbers frozen in the negative", Tim Malloy, assistant director of the poll, said in a statement as the president wrapped up a 12-day tour overseas. But only 37 percent say the ease of buying guns is the bigger cause of mass shootings, while 52 percent say the bigger reason is because it's too hard to get mental health care.

Gov. Roy Cooper's approval rating was 49 percent.

Trump's approval rating in North Carolina, meanwhile, ticked up in the past month to 37 percent from the 34 percent approval in October 3 poll results. Among Republican voters, 60 percent approve of the plan, 15 percent disapprove and 26 percent are undecided, while every other party, gender, education, age and racial demographic disapproved in the poll.
