New poll: Americans feel safer with guns in the home by 2-1 margin

A new poll conducted this month shows that only 20 percent of Americans would feel less safe with a gun in the home.
Check it out:

The poll was conducted following passage of a controversial Georgia firearms law that would allow increased concealed carry in places formerly off limits as well as expansive gun rights laws in more than twenty states in the past year.

The data is part of a survey done last week by the market research firm Economist/YouGov. The nationwide survey of a thousand adults was conducted from March 22-24 and has a margin of error of 3.9 percentage points

Pollsters asked respondents, “Do you think you would feel more safe or less safe with a gun in your house?” To which 42 percent answered, “yes,” while just 20 percent answered, “no.” This result was nearly the same across ethnic lines and gender lines, but saw a wider divide amongst political affiliation with 33 percent of Democrat respondents feeling they would be less safe while 59 percent of Republicans stated they would be more safe.
