Quinnipiac University Poll: Majority of voters support "Stand Your Ground" laws, 53/40


Even after never-ending salvos of racist-based anti-'Stand Your Ground' law coverage by the liberal media and their faux claims of a role of "Stand Your Ground" in Zimmerman's acquittal ... a majority of voters would endorse them when asked. Keep in mind that thirty-one states have Stand Your Ground laws or a limited variation on them.

Here's an excerpt of Quinipiac's poll results:

[...] White voters support "Stand Your Ground" laws 57 - 37 percent while black voters are opposed 57 - 37 percent. Men support these laws 62 - 34 percent while women are divided with 44 percent in favor and 47 percent opposed. Support is 75 - 19 percent among Republicans and 57 - 37 percent among independent voters, with Democrats opposed 62 - 32 percent.

Voters in households where someone owns a gun back the laws 67 - 29 percent.

"'Stand Your Ground' splits the country sharply along political, gender and racial lines," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

"With these kinds of numbers, it's unlikely the movement to repeal 'Stand Your Ground' will be successful in most of the country" ...

Interestingly, the fact that blacks and Dems are so opposed to Stand Your Ground laws flies in the face that in Florida where the Zimmerman shooting of Martin occurred and upon which much of the angst against SYG laws is likely based ... truth be known ... blacks benefit most from Stand Your Ground laws, despite the fact that it doesn't fit liberals' narrative and what the race-hustlers have been preachin' 24/7..
