Vice President Biden doesn't fare as well, trailing Rubio 40-39 percent and Paul 44-39 percent.

Poll: Gun control vote boosts Hagan, Landrieu

Sens. Kay Hagan (D-N.C.) and Mary Landrieu (D-La.) may have improved their 2014 electoral prospects with their decision to support legislation expanding background checks, according to a new poll released Thursday.

The survey by Democratic firm Public Policy Polling found that more than 70 percent of voters in both states support closing the gun show and Internet loopholes, and pluralities are more likely to vote for Hagan and Landrieu because of their vote.

In Louisiana, 45 percent of voters in the state say they are more likely to support Landrieu after the gun vote, while just 25 percent say they're less likely. Landrieu's approval rating has risen six points from February, and 72 percent of voters in the state say they favor background checks.
