    A Quinnipiac poll released Thursday shows 91 percent favor requiring universal gun background checks compared to 8 percent who said they're opposed.

    A new poll shows Florida voters — by better than a 9-to-1 margin — say they would like to see the state require background checks on those who want to buy guns.

    A Quinnipiac poll released Thursday shows 91 percent favor requiring universal gun background checks compared to 8 percent who said they're opposed.

    Fifty-one percent said they favored stricter statewide gun-control laws compared to 44 percent who were opposed. Self-described gun owners, however, were against tougher regulations, with 61 percent opposed to 33 percent in favor of such measures.

    Quinnipiac asked 1,000 registered voters about their opinions on gun control laws in a random telephone survey taken March 13-18. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percent.
