We ALREADY HAVE background checks for firearm purchases. Why don't you stop with the trick questions (and thus soliciting a friendly result for your Dem friends) and ask about EXPANDED BACKGROUND CHECKS which is what was defeated in Congress earlier this year. EXPANDED. Look it up, it is a word and that word makes all the difference. Put it into a genuinely unbiased question for a change sometime and you will see why Burr and lots of others voted No.

81% support background checks, but 22% would be more likely to vote against a senator who supported background checks? Aren't low information voters the darndest...

But this is disingenuous of you. They are expanded in that they cover all areas, areas that were not covered in the original law, like internet purchases or gun shows. So, PPP's wording of the question is entirely appropriate, saves words, and is more accurate than yours. If you want to use the word EXPANDED, then you should explain exactly what it means.

I guess they figure he'd be flip-flopping based on the polls.

Congresswoman Colbert

But wait - I thought Hagan's support of the Bloomberg/Manchin/Toomey gun registry was going to guarantee her re-election? That was basically what I read from PPP. Yet now someone is already tied with her, despite not even really launching their campaign? Amazing how that works - almost like how Sanford was able to net 20 points in two weeks, according to PPP's "highly accurate polling."

Where is Greg Brannon in this survey? He announced long before Thom Tillis.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
