Survey: Americans overwhelmingly support arming teachers to stop school shootings

UNITED STATES – Rasmussen Reports has released data from a new national survey showing that by a 49 percent-to-37 percent margin, Americans support armed teachers to stop school shootings.

 

This is a significant change from the February 28, 2018 survey, where Americans opposed teachers being armed by a 43 percent-to-48 percent margin.

In the 2018 survey, adults with children were more likely than adults without children to support armed teachers, a 59-percent-to-54 percent margin.

The latest survey provides an even larger gap, 57-percent-to-44 percent margin for people with children at home.

YouGov survey from earlier in the year showed a nearly identical result. That survey, which was conducted from May 28th to May 31st, surveyed 1,500 United States adult citizens.

According to that survey, Americans except for Democrats, liberals, and blacks favor arming teachers and administrators in schools. Young people between ages 18 and 19 were evenly divided.
