Americans Back Obama's Gun Control Proposals

A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds a slight majority of Americans give positive marks to new gun control proposals put forward by President Obama, 53% to 41%.

Fully 76% of Democrats rate Obama's proposals favorably, while 72% of Republicans say the opposite. Independents tilt positively toward the newly announced restrictions: 51% favorable and 44% unfavorable.

Gallup: "Given the chance to vote 'for' or 'against' each of nine key proposals included in President Obama's plan to reduce gun violence, Americans back all nine."
