39% consider it a positive when a political candidate is described as being “pro-gun.”  Twenty-seven percent (27%) see this as a negative description, while another 30% say it lies somewhere in between. It’s more popular, however, than being linked to a union or being described as “a global warming advocate.” – Rasmussen Reports discusses this week’s polls

Romney, who’s been running neck-and-neck with Obama for several weeks, holds a slight 44% to 42% lead over the president now.  Obama wins 44% support, while potential newcomer Christie picks up 43% in their matchup.

Fifty-six percent (56%) of voters are in favor of a balanced budget amendment to put the brakes on government spending, but just 33% say it’s even somewhat likely that such an amendment to the U.S. Constitution will become law in the near future.

Fifty percent (50%) of American adults are less likely to buy a GM car because of the bailout, while 51% are more likely to buy from Ford simply because it did not accept a taxpayer-funded bailout.

Voters continue to be pessimistic about America’s future. Just 35% think America’s best days are in the future, while a plurality (47%) says the country’s best days are in the past. Seventeen percent (17%) are not sure.
