Democrats and Republicans agree equally (68%) that a candidate must reflect their gun policy views in order to get their support in an election, per a new CBS poll. A total 66% of voters feel the same.

Why it matters: We can fully expect voters of all beliefs to take the gun policy issue to the polls with them this year. Even Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham warned that if Democrats and Republicans don't take action "we’re going to get hurt because most Americans believe we should solve problems that Americans are facing like gun violence."

By the numbers:

Big picture: The recent March for Our Lives rallies showed how millions of millennials across the country will take the issue of stricter gun control to the voting booths in November. But this poll shows that Republican voters expect their views to be reflected in their elected officials, too.

Be smart: Consistent enthusiasm among Democratic voters — as well as polls showing college grads and women increasingly align with the Democratic Party — could make it harder for Republican candidates in districts with large majorities of voters who support stricter gun control.

The U.S. has already celebrated Easter, graduations and so much more during the coronavirus pandemic, and now it can add July 4 to the list.

The state of play: Axios' Stef Kight writes public parades and fireworks displays around much of the country are being canceled to prevent mass gatherings where the virus could spread. Hot-dog contests and concerts will play to empty stands and virtual audiences — all while American pride treads an all-time low.
