    Recent polling data show that the National Rifle Association has a higher favorability rating than both President Barack Obama and the mainstream media.

    Fifty-four percent of Americans said they have a favorable opinion of the NRA according to a USA Today/Gallup Poll conducted Dec. 19-22.

    A Gallup poll released earlier this year showed that Americans’ distrust of the media hit a new high with 60 percent saying they had little or no trust in the mass media while 40 percent said they had a great deal or fair amount of trust.

    Barack Obama’s popularity falls short of each with a Huffington Post poll showing the president’s average favorability at 52.3 percent.

    This average includes ratings of 53 percent in a December 9 NBC News/Wall Street Journal pol; 56 percent in a November 18 CNN poll; 49 percent in a December 16 CBS News poll and 52 percent in a Politico/GWU/Battleground poll; and a Gallup/USA Today poll from Nov. 12 showing a 58 percent favorable rating.

    The NRA endorsed many Democrats for Congress in 2010

    So the 58% of Americans in that same poll who said gun sale laws should be more strict,

    the 92% who favored closing any so-called gun show loopholes,

    and the 62% who favor banning magazines over 10 round capacities,

    those results were left out of this thread why exactly???

    Because the point is that the lefties who demonize the NRA are in the minority.

    You're welcome. Happy to keep you focused.

    So is it safe to assume the Republican Nominee in 2016 will be the corpse of Charlton Heston?

    It's still a better choice than Romney. :thup:

    21% of Americans have a very favorable opinion of the NRA, and 18% have a very unfavorable opinion.

    -- 83% of Republicans have a favorable opinion of the NRA, compared with only 36% of Democrats. Among Independents, favorability was 54%.

    -- 71% of Americans with a gun in the household hold a favorable opinion of the NRA, while 40% of non-gun-owning households also have a favorable opinion of the NRA.

    Results for the USA Today/Gallup poll are based on telephone interviews conducted Dec. 19-22, 2012, with a random sample of 1,038 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia

    They were left out of the thread because on major specific gun issues, the public is not with the NRA.
