One of the most interesting things the study found was that those respondents who identified as "avid hunters" often opposed these activities. Out of this group, 69 percent of respondents opposed hunting elephants, 69 percent opposed hunting rhinos and 65 percent opposed hunting lions.
Even further, 53 percent of avid hunters opposed raffling off permits to hunt endangered species in Africa.
The polling data was taken from 1,000 interviews among likely voters nationwide. The interviews were conducted online from September 9-12, 2014.
