Only 27% Oppose Armed Guards
By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog
But so what, Save Jerseyans? We knew that already. He’s been posting insanely strong numbers ever since polling resumed post-Sandy.
I’m much more interested in a less-trumpeted finding of the poll; specifically, how 34% of those New Jerseyans polled believe (as I do) that “armed guards” would make schools safer.
Opposition is low. Only 27% says armed guards would decrease security in schools, and 29% take the Krauthammer approach, believing it’s a placebo that will have no effect one way or the other. Battleground voters support adding an armed presence by an even stronger margin.
I expect to see plenty of others following the Mayor of Marlboro’s lead in the coming weeks and months. And that’s a good thing in my book.
