Pew Research Associate on Gun Violence

By Maddie Bunting |

Only about two in ten Republicans told us that gun violence was a very big problem compared to around three-quarters of Democrats,” said Andrew Daniller, a research associate at Pew Research Center.

On the latest episode of Policy Chats, Daniller discusses public opinion on gun violence in America with students from the UC Riverside School of Public Policy. 

According to his profile, Daniller has published multiple articles on current social issues and prevalent topics and findings.

The Pew Research Center “is a nonpartisan fact tank that informs the public about the issues, attitudes and trends shaping the world. We conduct public opinion polling, demographic research, content analysis and other data-driven social science research.”

“As a public policy student, it is extremely important to understand where public opinion lies when implementing policy,” said Genevieve Chacon, a fourth-year public policy major who served as co-host for the episode. “Dr. Daniller provides insightful and necessary information regarding American’s opinions on gun policy.”

Launched in 2020, the UCR School of Public Policy podcast series explores current public policy issues with guests from throughout the policy world.
