In spite of all the negative attacks on the NRA by the mainstream media, a new Gallup poll shows that the National Rifle Association, still has a favorable rating of 54 percent, which is about a point higher than President Obama’s rating.
One poll of the president’s favorable ratings places it at 52.3 percent. That average includes favorable ratings of 49 percent in a December 16 CBS News poll, 53 percent in a December 9 Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll, and 56 percent in a November 18 CNN poll.
On the NRA, Gallup found that 83 percent of Republicans give the nation’s largest pro-gun organization a favorable rating. Fifty-four percent of independents view the NRA favorably, and 36 percent of Democrats do so.
Gallup also found a difference between the public’s general favorable impression of the NRA and views on specific issues. Only 35 percent of those surveyed said the NRA expresses their views on gun issues most or all of the time. That means there is a significant part of the population that views the NRA favorably yet still disagrees with the organization from time to time.
