Gun Control Is Fading From Young Americans? Agenda

On 06.01.18 02:31 PM posted by Julia Cohen

Six percent of Americans aged 15 to 34 consider gun control the top issue facing the country, according to a new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV poll reported on Wednesday.

That number is down from a high of 21 percent who considered it the top issue in March, according to the*poll.

Four in 10 surveyed still gave the government an “F” grade on handling gun control issues.

These numbers come in as March for Our Lives organizers like David Hogg remain in the news, most recently for pressuring*Publix*to end contributions to Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam over his support for the National Rifle Association.

More young people than before feel like they can affect change in politics. Of the 939 surveyed, 46 percent said they felt like they could have at least a moderate effect on policy, up from 37 percent in March.

Thirty percent of those polled approved of President Donald Trump’s performance.

The poll was conducted from April 23 to May 9 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.
