Polls: NRA More Popular Than Obama, Entertainment Industry

Posted by on Jan 18, 2013 at 8:39 am

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.

    “As Washington prepares for a political battle over the Obama White House’s proposals to curb gun violence after the Newtown, Conn., shootings…”

    But none of these “proposals” do anything to curb gun violence, they just curb guns. These are not the same thing. The distinction is apparently too subtle for journ-0-lists to comprehend.

    Maybe Congressman Darrell Issa ought to hold his next press conference about Fast and Furious with some widows and orphans of the hundreds of Mexican victims as backdrop. That would be very fitting.

    Obama can issue an executive order to his officials to completely explain Fast and Furious. He could also issue and executive order expressing his shame about the number of mainly Mexican lives that program cost, and to pay survivor’s pensions to the several thousand wives and orphans the program leaves in its wake.

    When we start treating the media like the enemy it is we will make progress again.

    Fight the media, take it over or replace it, stop giving it money, boycott companies that advertise on it or be destroyed.

    Oh, they know the difference, it’s just that they are all Obama’s spokespeople. In a White House press conference with a few exceptions everyone is Jay Carney, just different clothes, hair etc.
