Poll: 60 percent of voters favor I-594 for universal background checks

Posted By on Mon, Oct 13, 2014 at 1:54 PM

Although both of Washington's conflicting gun-control measures are losing support, the majority of voters still prefer Initiative 594, the measure to expand criminal background checks for all gun sales, according to a new poll by Elway Research.

In the latest poll, released this morning, 60 percent of voters surveyed said they would "definitely" or "probably" vote for I-594. Meanwhile, 39 percent said they were more likely to support its rival measure on Election Day, Initiative 591, which would prohibit the state from enacting any additional background checks except those mandated by the federal government.

Support for the competing measures has been declining since April when voter majorities paradoxically favored both. This change may indicate that voters are less confused about the similarly titled initiatives than they were six months ago.
