And once those elections were over, those prognosticators disappeared.
As for polls, keep in mind Romney believed his own polls election day, which made him look foolish when everyone else saw what was coming.
And if cons were really that confident, they wouldn't be trying to redistrict in their favor.
You have obviously forgotten the klintoon years....

85 percent, Pew Research:

While the issue of gun control remains divisive, there are clear areas of agreement when it comes to a number of gun policy proposals. Fully 85% of Americans favor making private gun sales and sales at gun shows subject to background checks, with comparable support from Republicans, Democrats and independents. Similarly, 80% support laws to prevent mentally ill people from purchasing guns, with broad support across party lines.

"Pro-gun Native American billboard draws criticism
Associated Press – 3 hrs ago

GREELEY, Colo.(AP)— Two billboards in which images of Native Americans are used to make a gun rights argument are causing a stir with some Colorado residents who say the image is offensive and insensitive.

The billboards in this northern Colorado city show three men dressed in traditional Native American attire and the words "Turn in your arms. The government will take care of you."

Matt Wells, an account executive with Lamar Advertising in Denver, said Monday that a group of local residents purchased the space.

"They have asked to remain anonymous," he said.

He also refused to disclose the cost but said the billboards are only appearing in the Greeley area. Wells said he has not received any complaints so far.

"I think it's a little bit extreme, of course, but I think people are really worried about their gun rights and what liberties are going to be taken away," Wells told the Greeley Tribune ( http://tinyurl.com/cdtkgj2 ).

Greeley resident Kerri Salazar, who is of Native American descent, said she was livid when she learned about it. She said she doesn't have a problem with the gun rights message, but she's offended the Native American people were singled out, apparently without their consent.

"I think we all get that (Second Amendment) message. What I don't understand is how an organization can post something like that and not think about the ripple effect that it's gonna have through the community," she said...."

Just proves my point about push polling,dumb dumb.
You lose 10 percentage points asking the same question in different contexts.
If the liberal polls were presented in a non-partisan format you would end up in the low 40 percentile,closer to the actual numbers.

What is it that would makes anyone think ‘gun free zones’ or ‘restricting magazine size’ will stop school shootings or any shooting for that matter? No one but the NRA and some of its loony members have come up with this silly notion apparently thinking that it is a valid argument. Since we all know, as an open and free society, we can’t eliminate crime or shootings completely, so why can’t you gunloons at least agree that we implement anything and everything, we possible can, to slow down a shooter in a classroom or parking lot – what gives?

Support For Gun Control Slips In New Poll
Doug Mataconis · Tuesday, April 23, 2013 · 7 Comments

Support for broad gun control measures appears to be slipping:

WASHINGTON — Four months after the shooting rampage at Sandy Hook Elementary School, a USA TODAY Poll finds support for a new gun-control law ebbing as prospects for passage on Capitol Hill seem to fade.

Americans are more narrowly divided on the issue than in recent months, and backing for a bill has slipped below 50%, the poll finds. By 49%-45%, those surveyed favor Congress passing a new gun-control law. In an NBC/Wall Street Journal poll in early April, 55% had backed a stricter gun law, which was down from 61% in February.

CNN Poll: Support For New Gun Laws Slips, More Americans Agree With NRA’s Proposals Than Do Not
by Noah Rothman | 6:02 pm, January 16th, 2013 » 15 comments

A new CNN poll released on Wednesday shows that public support for new gun control measures is slipping across the board from the highs in the immediate wake of the attack in Newtown, Connecticut. Further, the poll found that the public was more receptive to the NRA-backed proposal of putting armed guards in schools to prevent gun violence. More people surveyed think that this measure would reduce gun crime in schools than any new gun laws.

While 55 percent of respondents still favor new gun laws, compared to 43 percent who oppose them, support for individual gun control measures is slipping dramatically.

And it has fallen even further since that time. Perhaps you should pull your head out. And take in some REALITY.

In New Poll, Support For Stricter Gun Control Law Drops Since Newtown Shootings

by Eyder Peralta
March 26, 2013 2:08 PM

"A new CBS poll released today, however, finds that growth has deflated back to pre-Newtown levels. CBS reports:

"Currently, support for stricter gun control laws stands at 47 percent today, down from a high of 57 percent just after the shootings. Thirty-nine percent want those laws kept as they are, and another 11 percent want them made less strict.

"Partisans hold different views on gun control laws: 52 percent of Republicans want the laws kept as they are, while 66 percent of Democrats want stricter laws (down from 78 percent in February). Half of gun owners themselves want gun laws overall kept as they are, but a quarter call for stricter laws."

This poll comes a week after Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a Democrat from Nevada, announced .
The findings of the poll, however, are pretty much in line with what Pew found shortly after the shootings., their bottom line was that the "public's attitudes toward gun control have shown only modest change in the wake of at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn."
http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/03/2...

"The law-enforcement support site PoliceOne.com has released the results of a massive survey in which “more than 15,000 verified law enforcement professionals” were asked 30 questions about current gun control proposals. The results may surprise you.“Contrary to what the mainstream media and certain politicians would have us believe,” writes Police One Editor in Chief Doug Wyllie,“police overwhelmingly favor an armed citizenry, would like to see more guns in the hands of responsible people, and are skeptical of any greater restrictions placed on gun purchase, ownership, or accessibility.”."

No sane thinking person believes the solution is infringing on the rights of law abiding citizens.
The street level thugs with illegal weapons is where the lions share of violent crimes occur.
Everyone knows it,and,everyone avoids it.

You obviously don't remember the klintoon gun ban. Or ever listened to diane feinstein, chuck shumer, bloomberg, etc.

The FACT remain;

"The Right of the People to Keep and Bear Arms shall NOT be infringed".

[/QUOTE]

In actual fact: the majority of gun crimes occur in the home.

That is why murders are most frequently committed by someone in the same household.
