    WASHINGTON -- A new poll has New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) down a total of 15 points from her previous approval rating in a survey that followed her vote against requiring background checks for firearms purchases.

    Ayotte's plunge underscores the changing politics around gun control and gun safety. In years past, lawmakers worried that a vote for gun control would bring the anger of the National Rifle Association. In the new reality, votes against gun control also carry a political risk, as the Ayotte poll indicates.

    I'm glad she's lost points. Matter of fact, I hope this spreads, and anyone who voted against the bill is taken out of office and told to go home.

    That would be about 4 Dems and almost all of the GOP.

    My thoughts exactly.

    BTW..................do you think that these politicians are aware that every vote they make is recorded on the internet, and not only that, but many people are tired of being lied to, and can check out if their representative is telling the truth or not?

    Interestingly enough..................on a hearing about jobs this week, NOT ONE SINGLE REPUBLICAN showed up to discuss it.

    Why is that? Didn't they run on a platform of "jobs, jobs, jobs" to get the vote the last 2 times?

    That's what comes form belonging to a party that doesn't believe in facts.
    National Rifle Association shut out on Election Day

    Making up your own polls doesn't count in the end.

    If the Leftytoons weren't a bunch of pussies it would have passed. Nice fail though.
