The national and statewide polls have been conducted since the December 14th Newtown Elementary School massacre.  A March 7th poll shows voters nationwide show 88-10 percent support for universal background checks, including 85-13 percent among gun owners.

In Florida, a March 21st poll shows 91-8 percent support for background checks, including 88-11 percent among gun owners.
