Florida voters support universal background checks for gun purchases, other gun control laws and Hillary Clinton for president in 2016, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday.
The poll found that 91 percent of Florida voters support universal background checks for gun purchases.
“The idea of requiring background checks on those who want to buy guns has overwhelming support, 91-8 percent, in a country where getting a majority to agree on anything is often difficult,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Floridians also support Hillary Clinton more than their homegrown political stars, Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush. In head-to-head match-ups, Clinton leads Bush 51 to 40 percent and Rubio 52 to 41 percent.
