You do realize what this means, right? Yes, the War on the NRA will intensify about a thousand-fold after the left digests this terrible news. Now of course the NBC News/WSJ poll does not mention that the NRA is more popular than Obama (it’s NBC, after all), but they do note they’re more popular than the pinheads in Hollywood.
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.
Meanwhile, a recent Gallup poll shows the NRA has a 54% positive rating.
Fifty-four percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the National Rifle Association, while 38% have an unfavorable opinion. The public’s ratings of the NRA have fluctuated since first measured by Gallup in 1993 — from a low of 42% favorable in 1995 to a high of 60% in 2005.
Contrast that with Obama, who’s clinging to a 50% approval, according to Gallup. Consider also Obama’s approval is down 11 points at this time contrasted to just prior to his first inaugural. No wonder he and the media are desperately trying to improve his image by going Alinsky on the NRA.
