gallup

A record-low 26% of Americans favor a legal ban on the possession of handguns in the United States other than by police and other authorized people.

The results are based on Gallup’s annual Crime poll, conducted Oct. 6-9. This year’s poll finds support for a variety of gun-control measures at historical lows, including the ban on handguns, which is Gallup’s longest continuing gun-control trend.

I was excited until I saw the poll was conducted only over a 3 day period, with a random sample of 1005 adults. :/  I took 3 statistics courses in university, but I squeaked by.  I’m pretty sure surveying 1005 people when the total population is 307 Million is an awfully small sample size.

Anyone care to weigh in?
