U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- A new Quinnipiac University poll released this week had an embarrassing revelation for U.S. Democrats, which might reinforce suspicions about why so many identifying with that party want more gun control, and some have even suggested joining the National Rifle Association should be a crime.
According to Quinnipiac, “As the world witnesses what is happening to Ukraine, Americans were asked what they would do if they were in the same position as Ukrainians are now: stay and fight or leave the country? A majority (55 percent) say they would stay and fight, while 38 percent say they would leave the country.”
However, the survey breaks down the numbers by party affiliation: “Republicans say 68 – 25 percent and independents say 57 – 36 percent they would stay and fight, while Democrats say 52 – 40 percent they would leave the country.” In a bygone era, people might have resorted to calling them “fraidy cats.”
Early last month, Rasmussen released a survey showing 63 percent of Democrats “believe the United States needs stricter gun control laws.” On the other hand, 69 percent of Republicans and 53 percent of Independents said the U.S. doesn’t need stricter gun laws, the poll revealed.
Back in March 2021, a different Rasmussen survey found an alarming 40 percent of Democrat voters “favor repealing the Second Amendment.” A look around the country will find Democrats responsible for virtually all of the gun control legislation being considered by state legislatures. In Washington, as reported earlier, Democrats just shoved through a ban on so-called “large capacity” ammunition magazines, while in Virginia, the new Republican majority in the House of Delegates is trying to undo some of the extremist gun control measures adopted in 2020 after Democrats took control.
By no great surprise, the Rasmussen report also noted, “Among Republicans, 72% oppose repealing the Second Amendment, as do 70% of voters not affiliated with either major party.” Overall in that survey, “76% of Likely U.S. Voters say the U.S. Constitution guarantees the right of an average citizen to own a gun. Only 16% disagree, while 8% say they’re not sure,” which suggests there is a need for further education about constitutional rights, and particularly the importance of Second Amendment protections.
Perhaps that lesson is being witnessed in southeastern Europe every day on the news, where one can view Ukrainian citizens being issued arms to defend against the Russian invaders.
Covering the Quinnipiac poll, WND News wrote unsympathetically, “If the United States were to be invaded as Ukraine was, by Russia just two weeks ago, 55% of Americans would stay and fight…But those mostly would be Republicans and independents, because a majority of the Democrats responding to a new poll say they’d cut and run.”
That’s hardly the sort of thing Democrats—who face a potential drubbing in this fall’s midterm elections over everything from gasoline prices to gun rights—want to see in print, especially this far out from an election. It amounts to seven more months during which voters will have plenty of time to rethink their choices made in 2020, and decide to change course, considering the economic and social chaos currently unfolding with no end in sight.
(A new Rasmussen survey released Wednesday, March 9 noted, “Fifty-four percent of voters believe it is likely cheating affected the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, including 33% who say it’s Very Likely. Forty percent (40%) don’t think it’s likely the election was affected by cheating.”)
The Quinnipiac report made another observation which too many people have been avoiding: “Half of Americans (50 percent) compare Vladimir Putin’s actions against Ukraine to Adolph Hitler’s actions against Austria and Czechoslovakia before the outbreak of World War II, while 31 percent say that comparison is too strong, and 18 percent say they don’t know enough about that history.”
Another worthy note from the Quinnipiac report: “For his overall job approval, Americans give Biden a negative 38 – 51 percent job approval rating with 11 percent not offering an opinion. This compares to a negative 37 – 52 percent job approval rating a week ago.”
Not surprisingly, Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking poll for March 9 shows 41 percent of likely voters approving of Biden’s job performance, while 57 percent disapprove. This includes 22 percent who “strongly approve” and 48 percent who “strongly disapprove,” a more than 2-to-1 margin.
In addition to being identified as the “party of gun prohibition,” Democrats might now face a secondary identity as the “party cut-and-run.”

While it’s a obvious the Demoncrats have no respect for the constitution in general and the second amendment in particular, it isn’t a given the Republicans do either. Their track record isn’t good. They are better than the Demoncrats but only just.
Two different sides of the same corrupt coin.
both tails between legs running away
It’s hard to argue against what you and Green Mtn. Boy state when you think about Pierre Defelecto and Linda Gramnesty. However, we have the power to send them home yet the voters in their respective states keep electing them, jury is out on Pierre, Utah may say one and done for that creep. Look at Arizona and the relationship with McCainiac. Why is that exactly? Why would citizen keep electing these assistant dims? IMHO, Desperation and fear are the only reasons I can come up with. Which means we Liberty and Freedom loving Americans need to step up our… Read more »
Election fraud comes to my mind.
I don’t think the Dems have the numbers they say they have.
They can’t win in an honest and fair election.
I’m actually encouraged by this.
How do we get invaded? Asking for a friend. I think that we’d get to put down an invasion AND we’d be able to lock the door behind all the dems that finally left. We don’t have to let them come back, right?
That was my first thought, but take a few moments to contemplate how this would actually go. News is out and anyone thinking things through knows something is happening and prepares. (1) Those who would flee (TWWF) remain blissfully unaware and unprepared. Invasion starts, you arm up and initiate defensive actions. TWWF call cops on you for being armed, convinced government will protect them and/or invaders are benevolent – though some may start hoarding in fear. (3) Violence comes to your town – you begin fighting while most of TWWF cower in fear in their homes, basements, subways or wherever.… Read more »
When TSHTF the first thing that will need to be done is capture the neutered male TWWF neighbor or two, you know which ones they’ll be, to use as a human shield or to Stepin Fetchit, as we have learned watching the scum in the Middle East for decades.
There is value using TWWF as shields or other tasks like fetching the dead or zeroing in that Holosun you never got around to mounting. “To The Victor Go The Spoils!”
True, but then you have to feed them.
Do you really think police are going to be working to protect someone in hiding ? They’ll be busy protecting their own. lol
We are being invaded. Our lack of a Southern border is the primary avenue of approach in to the heart of our Republic. If you do not think the international drug cartels and islamic terror groups are exploiting that avenue of approach you are missing the real Red Dawn III. Decades ago, before our officer corps was purged of thinkers those of us at Southcom worked that as a real issue every day. But our political elites have committed silent surrender for 35 years. The goose is already cooked. Semper Fidelis
How do we get invaded? We invite the invaders. As others have already pointed out, illegal aliens are invading by the millions by invitation of Biden’s handlers.
If Biden’s handlers thought that they were going to lose control of government, Biden might invite the Chinese People’s Army to come here and “restore order”
“…which suggests there is a need for further education about constitutional rights…”
By who, the communist teachers’ unions???? The communist public media???
Unfortunately, Mr. Workman, the only folks reading excellent works such as yours here don’t need that education, and those that do need it wouldn’t be caught dead reading this or anything like this.
Mr. Workman does preach to the choir very well. As a member of the choir, I appreciate that a lot!
I am very grateful. Share it around to reach the unenlightened.
Thx for reading and sharing AMMOLAND!
Only 72% of republicans oppose repealing the second amendment? That means about 25% of republicans are in favor of repealing the 2A. These are the people responsible for the downfall of society. Turncoats.
During WW2 the word was: Collaborators
During the Cold War the term was communists.
The term should be Deceased.
Don’t ever trust a Democrat to be honest, to be fair, or to be truthful. It’s not going to happen. They want total control, and if we were ever invaded, they would flee like the scared little cowards they really are.
W1873 – one ‘minor’ issue that the runners haven’t figured out (and likely never will) is that there isn’t anyplace for them to run to. I can’t think of any place that would willingly accept a bunch of whiny cowards since most already have their ‘fair share’ of them!
After the Bidenflation is hitting all Americans, I wonder how the SHEEPLE would vote about the “performance” of Xiden/Bidet/Sleepy-Joe!?!? As an American I am distressed that the DemoKKKrat communist party and their “HANDLERS” are trying to fulfill the comment of 0b0z0 when he said; I/We want to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” – America into a communist/socialist ameriKKKa.
To accomplish that transformation, Biden’s marxist handlers need to make us dependent on government. If we position ourselves, and our children, so that we do not need them, then their scheme will not work. Critical thinking, independent though, recognizing opportunity, and clean elections are key.
Hard agree! Self-sufficiency, prosperity through education (not indoctrination), and professional employment, critical thinking skills, and a solid grasp of civic virtue is key in the development of our children and future generations into citizens who are engaged in the restraint of our government – rather than the other way around.
Restrain the Government. I like that! I’m stealing it for the new rallying cry!
Wild – NEVER forget that the entire Constitution limits what government can do – that is why the lefties are so dead set on reinterpreting it or better yet just getting rid of it.
That there is the linchpin of the Left. Their entire ethos hangs on the false narrative that the Constitution is a “living document”. It is NOT, and the founders said as much. It is as fixed as the Rock of Gibraltar; it can only be altered by amendment, as approved by Congress then 3/4ths of the States. Don’t get me started on the CoS bs, either; it’s a con game to trigger a Con-Con!
Judicial activism, and either loose or intermediate scrutiny, are impeachable offenses for judges. This needs to be enforced!
Our country will not be taken over by a foreign attacker. The real enemies of the people are “Domestic” here among us. Canada just proved that. Australia
is another example. The first thing that has to happen is disarm the people.
The people of Ukraine learned very quickly what the 2nd Amendment means, it’s going to take the Democrats a lot longer, it’s part of their DNA..
I honestly believe that the Left is uneducable. They are so devoted to total ideological purity “wokeness” that they would resort to violence as their first recourse, not the last. As cowards, they hate those who don’t share their craven nature and they want to impose their hoplophobia on the masses through the government and their enforcers, because that way they don’t have to find out when they F around, like Rosenbaum & Huber did…
Afternoon In poll done today it is said that in armed conflict such as the Ukraine where to take place in the USA today Democrats would be the first to flee protecting only themselves not American freedoms . This shows in every aspect of the democrats political policies from Obama stating that he would side with the muslim world in a war to his apology tour around the world. Joe Biden leaving Americans in Afghanistan just months ago while arming Taliban with American military vehicles and weapons of war. As far as this reader is concerned that is treason and… Read more »
Not only should he be impeached but he should be tried and executed for multiple counts of treason, aiding and abetting our enemies, graft, conspiracy to commit treason, wire fraud and theft. The loser calls Cornpop a bad dude…compared to him, Cornpop if there ever was a character, is a Trappistine Monk compared to obiden.
We see in this article a stark difference between freedom and liberty at work. Liberty is living under Natural Law, the law of nature and nature’s God. This burden is far heavier than that of serfs who live under totalitarian regimes. In a state of liberty you fend for yourself and yours and everyone is expected to work, behave and not pass the consequences of their bad choices on to their neighbors. Decades ago while a young kid in parochial school I learned this dictum: with every right comes responsibility. But we have granted freedom to far too large a… Read more »
Excuse me…but has anyone noticed that the Dem Polis that oversaw the shipping of fully auto American rifles to Ukranian CITIZENS, are the same polis that are trying hard to take our semi auto rifles from We The People here in America?
Yes! Hypocrisy at its finest!
Thanks for reading and sharing, CB!
“Fraidy cats” = sniveling cowards.
Tories! That’s what they are.
Democrats are liars , cheater and cowards is all this proves . We already new these things about the Democrats but thank you for reaffirming these things about the spineless cowards for the whole country to see what they have put in charge of the land of the free and the brave . Spineless yellow cowards !
@M454C; I disagree with one word that is MISSPELLED. That word is Democrats. The correct spelling of these American HATERS IS: DemoKKKrats! Other than that misspelling, I TOTALLY AGREE!
Some repubs, too! But how is it that such a high percentage or the liars, cheaters, and cowards all end up in Washington, DC?
Looks like we need to get the ball rolling to clean up the USA. lol
Mentally diseased degenerates can’t be embaresed,they hate the Constitution and America they even hate themselves.
Rootin’ Tootin’ Vladimir Putin, he ain’t gonna talk ’til he’s all done shootin’.
Rewrite the 2nd amendment and get rid of that militia clause that confuses the gun grabbers. #fjb
New 2nd amendment.
The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.
Bobtail, there is nothing wrong with the way it is written. Only democrats get confused
It’s the plain language and facts they don’t like that sets them off. sad. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
I disagree. The States have RENEGED on their RESPONSIBILITY to TRAIN Its civilians. The States have RENEGED on teaching their Militia who ARE made up of the CITIZENS of the States wherein they live and work. The Constitution MUST be taught and adhered to by ALL Americans. Those “people” who do not want to HONORABLY live-by OUR American Constitution are welcomed, and even encouraged, to LEAVE OUR COUNTRY!!!
It’s best not to have state government employees involved in training the residents.
Government employees are the problem.
“Civilians” are doing just fine without any government “help.”
“Civilians” understand who the redcoats are and the redcoats should just leave them alone.
Until 30-40 years ago the county had a militia. The young men were armed with M1917 rifles. Then the people lost interest and it went away. Where the rifles went I don’t know. Probably back to the state militia. It is unfortunate, the people most interested in a militia are the old duffers, all over 60 years of age.
The process of changing any part of the Constitution is too dangerous in the hands of todays politicians.
Teaching judges, politicians, and bureaucrats to read English properly would be easier, cheaper, and above all safer.
This would be better.
”Possession of Arms being necessary to a state of security, the right to keep and bear them shall Never be infringed.” There. That they just might understand but don’t count on it!
I must admit that I was not surprised at the poll results. Democrats are the enemy of the republic. We are fortunate to have some Republicans that would stand for the country.
Make the polls public record and revoke all benefits assosiated with being a US citizen. Then deport these losers.
Well, this poll already proves what we have all suspected over the years; Lefties are cowards. Only when their numbers are large enough do their brownshirts lash out, as we saw in 2020… Attackers assault people & destroy property (such as arson) by hiding in a crowd (mob) until they’re ready, and after they strike they melt back into the mob. Rarely do they engage in violence on a personal level, keeping their faces covered to thwart being identified, even when rumbling against groups like the Proud Boys. But they never venture out of the cities, because they would get… Read more »
Their is a lot at stake not just our second amendment rights our freedom as a nation is now in jeopardy. Americans are facing some uncertain times ahead with a administration that can not leed our country let alone the world. 37 million locked down in China as of today more covid illness. There is also the danger that Joe Biden and his administration will again mandate the same. As we have very little information on those new developments out of China. If you are not aware the price of fuel and supply chain issues are not responsible for inflation… Read more »
