Most Americans apparently aren’t as worried about the heated tone of our nation’s political debate as some media pundits.

Even among Democrats, 49 percent see no connection between the shooting and the rhetoric, while 42 percent disagree. Among independents, 56 percent say they see no link, while 33 percent disagree.

The poll’s error margin is plus or minus 4 percentage points.
