A Pew poll released Monday shows that the public is divided over whether the Newtown shootings are indicative of broader problems in society. A release from the polling center says, in part:

“The survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted Dec. 14-16 among 746 adults, finds the public is evenly divided over whether the Newtown shootings reflect broader problems in Americans society (47%) or are just the acts of troubled individuals (44%).”
