    NBC/WSJ poll: NRA more popular than entertainment industry
    As Washington prepares for a political battle over the Obama White House's proposals to curb gun violence after the Newtown, Conn., shootings, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that the National Rifle Association is more popular than the entertainment industry.

    Forty-one percent of adults see the NRA -- the nation's top gun lobby -- in a positive light, while 34 percent view it in a negative light.

    By comparison, just 24 percent have positive feelings about the entertainment industry, and 39 percent have negative ones.

    The NRA's fav/unfav score is virtually unchanged from its 41 percent-to-29 percent rating in the Jan. 2011 NBC/WSJ poll, nearly two years before the Newtown shootings.​

    NYCarbineer I've re-worked your signature for you:

    This means that people are upset about the shows on television, boy bands, etc.

    I see you didn't bother to read anything.

    From my link:

    Forty-one percent of adults see the NRA -- the nation's top gun lobby -- in a positive light, while 34 percent view it in a negative light.​

    From your link:

    After the press conference and a subsequent appearance on "Meet the Press," the NRA's favorability shifted to a 42-45 negative split...​

    Hmmmm...your link shows the NRA as being viewed MORE favorably than my link.

    Who's the idiot, again? Hint: You.

    I'm sure it comforts you to pretend that.

    You don't need to be a gun owner to join.
