THE HILL: BY LUIS SANCHEZ - 02/25/18 03:24 PM EST
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.”
As you plan your 2018 legislative agenda, we strongly recommend that you keep health care as a top priority.
We applaud your success in repealing one of the most despised parts of Obamacare—the individual mandate fines—but millions of Americans are still suffering under the many other provisions of the 2010 health overhaul that remain on the books.
Americans need relief, and we believe they will hold their representatives accountable at the polls this November.
The efforts you put into repealing and replacing Obamacare last year were heroic. But the challenges are great.
Millions of people now rely on Obamacare subsidies for their health coverage, and the law has introduced wave after wave of distortions into our health sector, making legislative change difficult, especially under the torturous reconciliation rules.
The legislation offered last fall by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La., offered a new platform for reform that we believe can lead to success.
Rick Santorum and Patriot Voices PAC are pleased to endorse Seth Leibsohn for Arizona Congressional District 9, which is an open seat. Seth is a long-time friend and former staff member. You can get to know him from his books or his career in radio or his work in substance abuse prevention or in the think tank community. We urge you to check out more of his biography at his website: Seth4Congress.com.
"I first met Seth when he was working with Bill Bennett, Jack Kemp, and Jeane Kirkpatrick at their think tank, Empower America," said Rick Santorum. "We later worked together when I was the guest host of Bill Bennett’s radio show and I hired him to be my policy director for my run for President in 2012. I know Seth to not only be a highly articulate and intelligent conservative but delight in the idea he could now help flip a Democratic seat in Arizona to a Republican seat."
As Dennis Prager recently put it on his radio show,“Seth is the kind of conservative that has great appeal in a district that is not exactly liberal and not exactly conservative.” A man of great principle and conviction, who knows how to communicate our message and whose passions are our country and its children, we heartily endorse Seth and ask you to help his candidacy out any way you can.
