A new survey from the Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling continues to reflect the trend of senators seeing their approval ratings affected by how they voted for gun background checks.
52% of voters say they're less likely to support [Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.] in a future election because of this vote, compared to only 19% who say they're more likely to. Additionally voters say by a 21 point margin, 45/24, that they trust senior colleague John McCain more than Flake when it comes to gun issues
39% of voters say they're less likely to vote for each of [Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska] and [Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska] in their next elections based on this vote, while only 22% and 26% say they're more likely to vote for Begich and Murkowski respectively because of this.
Ohio Sen. Rob Portman and Nevada Sen. Dean Heller, both Republicans, saw similar results. A poll from PPP released last week also had Sen. Kelly Ayotte seeing a drop in her approval rating since her vote against background checks.
Sen. Pat Toomey, on the other hand, has gotten a boost in the polls since he spearheaded the measure.
