Where does the Public Really Stand

On the Issue of Guns?

Winning Elections 2022:

What the Candidates Need to Know

The nation is once again debating gun control, and Congress may actually be on the cusp of passing minor revisions to the nation’s gun laws. Still, at the extremes of each party, both appear to have dug in their heels. And yet, these two extremes appear to be out of sync with a majority of public opinion on the issue. This report presents data on the public’s positions on guns and new legislation for addressing the issue of gun violence following the 2020 election. In this report, the country is specifically divided into blue states and red states based on the 2020 blue state/red state map. Here the data shows that neither side of the debate is fully in touch with issues of gun access, changing existing laws, and bans on assault weapons.

As the country heads into the 2022 midterm election, the economy promises to be front and center. Therefore, it is useful, especially for candidates running for office, to consider where much of the public stood on some economic issues just prior to the 2020 election. Then a majority of Democrats thought the economy was on the wrong track while a majority of Republicans thought it was on the right track. Ultimately, it was the independents who decided the last election, as they will decide the next one. Candidates who understand the various transformations that have occurred may have more success in tapping into voter anxiety over the economy. The middle would appear to include both weak Democrats and weak Republicans and independents. And yet, there is no one issue that stands out more than others. Rather it is whether the economy is on the wrong track or in the right direction and how worried they are about the future of the economy. This report presents data which is very suggestive. Candidates running for office that don’t pay attention to the last election are surely not likely to fare well in this one. Moreover, they need to tailor their messages not only in a way that addresses these concerns, but addresses them specifically for those in the middle. This will also be a tall order because over 60 percent of the public does not believe that government seriously represents them as opposed to the wealthy and powerful.
