The mass shooting in Las Vegas has renewed talks of gun-control legislation in Congress, but most voters continue to question the motives of politicians who raise gun-related issues.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that just 15% of Likely U.S. Voters believe most politicians raise gun-related issues to address real problems. Seventy-four percent (74%) think politicians publicize their views on these issues to get elected, while 10% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
