New Poll: Nobody Trusts Gun Control to be Fair, Not Even Democrats

The Senate Judiciary Committee is finishing its investigation into the meeting between Russians and President Donald Trump's campaign in June 2016 — and Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa wants to release transcripts from closed-door interviews with Trump's son and others. Grassley says he wants to work out an agreement with Feinstein to release transcripts from interviews with Donald Trump Jr. and others who attended the campaign meeting in Trump Tower. (AP Photo/J.

Democrat leaders are seizing on yet another mass murder as a political cudgel, but a new poll shows this can’t possibly be a winning issue for them.

It’s pretty remarkable that the Democrats are taking what should be a great year for them, and pushing an issue that a new poll says is losing for them across the board.

The poll by Rasmussen Reports has Americans distrusting the government’s ability to enforce gun control laws fairly by a staggering 58-24 margin. That’s a blowout football score, not a close political result.

56% of Republicans don’t think the government would enforce gun control fairly. 55% of Independents agree. But most surprising is that 61% of Democrats think gun control would be enforced unfairly.

Americans also believe politicians use gun control as a wedge issue for elections. That one’s by a 74-15 margin. Nobody’s taking this seriously when politicians make speeches.

If this poll is accurate, we can expect the gun grabbing fringe to fail once again.
