Gallup Favorability Ratings: NRA 58%, Obama 45%, Clinton 41%

We welcome the Democrats campaigning against the NRA and mindlessly blaming them for any gun crimes.

The National Rifle Association continues to enjoy strong favorability among most Americans despite intense criticism from Democrats amid the 2016 presidential race.

Nearly six in 10 Americans, 58 percent, say they have a favorable view of the NRA, while 35 percent hold an unfavorable one, according to the latest Gallup poll released Thursday.

That’s mostly in line with views about the group over the past decade. Positive views about the NRA ticked down to 54 percent in 2012 after the Newtown, Conn., elementary school shooting.
The NRA’s highest ratings were recorded in 2005, when 60 percent of Americans had a favorable view of the group. Its lowest was a decade earlier, at 42 percent.

Views about the NRA are split in terms of party ideology, with 77 percent of conservative respondents holding a favorable view and 65 percent of liberals holding an unfavorable one.

Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton went after the group in speeches following the shooting in Oregon earlier this month that left nine dead along with the gunman.

She’ll say and do just about anything, even more so now after her rolling disaster at the Benghazi hearing today.

But let’s see how favorable she is of late:

Well now, that’s not looking too good, just like today’s appearance:

That’s eight miles of bad road. The photo just screams out “I don’t give a shit.”

Speaking of bad road, Obama’s been traveling down one a long time and has the approval to show for it. Upside? He’s ranking higher than Grandma, which isn’t saying much.
