Poll: Low Support For Armed Guards In Schools

Source: TPM

The National Rifle Association's much-maligned proposal to put armed police officers in schools across the country has little support, a poll released Wednesday shows.

According to the findings from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling, only 41 percent of registered voters nationwide support the NRA's idea while 50 percent are opposed.

As for the attitudes toward the pro-gun lobby, the public is split. Forty-two percent said they have a favorable opinion of the NRA, compared with 45 percent who have an unfavorable opinion. That's a far cry from a late-December Gallup poll that showed 54 percent of respondents expressing a favorable view of the NRA. PPP's survey also showed that 53 percent of voters would support passage of stricter gun laws by Congress.

PPP conducted its survey Jan. 3-6 using automated phone interviews with 1,000 registered voters. It has a margin of error three percentage points.
