Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg insisted on Wednesday that polls showing millennials are more conservative on guns are “biased.”


MSNBC host Joe Scarborough asked Hogg during “Morning Joe” what he thought of Harvard polls showing that millennials are “more progressive on just about every other issue, [but] actually are more conservative when it comes to guns.”

“What message do you have, instead of just to elected leaders, what message do you have to your own generation and other millennials who are more conservative than most would expect on this issue?” Scarborough asked.

Hogg insisted that the polls are “biased” because conservative students are more likely to respond to them.

“One thing I think is important to remember about those polls is conservative students and conservative people in the millennial generation are typically a lot more politically active, so the polls may be biased in that way because many students that have more liberal views may just not partake in them,” Hogg claimed.

“So there may be a skew in the polls that way,” he concluded.
