Santorum dismisses as 'outlier' poll showing majority support gun control

THE HILL:  BY LUIS SANCHEZ -

Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (R) said on Sunday that he does not believe a recent CNN poll that found more Americans support stricter gun laws than at any time since 1993.

“I just don’t believe the poll. I just think it is an outlier poll,” Santorum told “State of the Union” host Jake Tapper.

Seventy percent of respondents in the CNN poll released on Sunday said that they support stricter gun laws, up from 52 percent in October.

Santorum said he doesn’t trust the poll because it surveyed a disproportionately small number of Republicans.

“That poll only had 23 percent Republicans in the poll,” he said. “The numbers should be more reflective of the 35 to 40 percent that is Republican in this country.”
