Poll Finds Pennsylvanians Are Mixed Over Gun Sales Background Check Nix

April 28, 2013

Pennsylvania voters are said to be mixed on the U.S. Senate’s rejection last week of expanded background checks for gun sales.

A new Quinnipiac poll finds that 34 percent of the state’s voters are “angry” with the decision.  36 percent say they are “dissatisfied.”  22 percent of those surveyed responded as “satisfied.”  Five percent listed themselves as “enthusiastic” over the Senate vote.

Pennsylvania U.S. Senator Pat Toomey was one of the co-sponsors of the background check amendment.  The poll shows Toomey’s approval rating has since risen to 34 percent, with 29 percent responding with disapproval.  54 percent of those surveyed said they view Toomey more favorably now, while 12 percent say they think more unfavorably toward him.
