Party Views Diverge Most on U.S. Gun Policies

Of 17 U.S. policy areas, gun laws spark the greatest difference between Republicans and Democrats in terms of their satisfaction with the nation’s policies in each area. Fifty-nine percent of Republicans and 28% of Democrats are satisfied with U.S. gun laws, a difference of 31 percentage points.

U.S. policies on crime, the state of race relations, and the quality of public education elicit the smallest differences in Republicans’ and Democrats’ satisfaction. [cont.]
