Gun Control Tied to Obama Popularity

Harry Enten: "Want to know how people feel about President Obama's gun control plan? Simply ask whether they approve or disapprove of how the president and his administration are doing their job. When you attach Obama's name by calling it "Barack Obama's proposals", the Post discovered that 53% of Americans favor the proposals - nearly identical to Obama's approval rating of 55% in a separate Post poll last week. Gallup found the same, with 53% in favor of Obama's gun control plan, compared to his monthly approval rating of 52%."

"Drill down to specific demographics and the link between approval of the gun plan and approval of Obama's administration becomes even clearer... Among the 24 subgroups tested [by the Post], the correlation between a subgroup's opinion towards [the administration] and Obama's gun plan is 0.98 - nearly perfect."
