NYT poll finds more voters agree with GOP on gun policy

A New York Times/Siena College poll conducted September 6-14, 2022 finds that more voters agree with the Republican Party on gun policy.

The poll surveyed almost nearly 1,400 registered voters.

When asked, “Who do you most agree with on gun policy?” voters responded 47% to 43%, in favor of Republicans over Democrats

Voters were also asked, “Who do you agree with the most on crime and policing?” They answered 47% to 37% in favor of Republicans over Democrats.

The NYT/Siena College poll also asked voters if they supported “A ban on semi-automatic weapons and high-capacity magazines.” Forty-nine percent of voters said they did not support such a ban, while 46 percent said they did.

When responses were broken down by voting patterns, 74% of Biden voters supported banning semi-automatic weapons and “high capacity” magazines. An identical percentage of Trump voters opposed the ban on semi-automatic weapons and “high capacity” magazines.

When ages were taken into account, 54% of the youngest voters – aged 18 to 29 – opposed the ban on semi-automatic weapons and “large capacity” magazines, while 41% of younger voters backed him.
