Don’t Look Now, the NRA is more Popular than President Barack Obama … NRA 54% – Obama 53%



How about this, after all the negative publicity brought on by the liberal MSM and Barack Obama calling for a war on the NRA, a funny thing happened on the way to the popularity polls. According to the latest Gallup poll, the NRA actually has a higher popularity rating that does President Barack Obama, 54% to 53%. The survey was taken after the tragic Sandy Hook Elementary school shootings that saw 26 individuals murdered, including 20 children, at the hands of a mad man. As pointed out by Newsbusters, the article by Frank Newport, the Gallup poll, which was conducted Dec. 19-22, showed that only 38% of those surveyed have an unfavorable opinion of the NRA, while Obama’s disapproval rating is three points higher at 41%.

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.

The NRA’s positions on guns and gun control legislation have received significant attention from media and politicians during the last week after the association’s top lobbyist, Wayne LaPierre, held a press conference in the wake of the Newtown school shooting. LaPierre denounced the idea of additional gun control legislation and instead called for armed guards in the nation’s schools. The press conference came midway through the field period of this Dec. 19-22 USA Today/Gallup poll.

      George Washington on the 2nd Amendment

      “A free people ought not only be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who would attempt to abuse them, which would include their own Government.”

      IS THERE SOMETHING I AM NOT GETTING? While American is focused on the attack encompassing the 2nd Amendment by the current Administration … was the 1st Amendment signed away in secret by Barack Obama with the support of Congress? The silence from the major liberal networds is deafening.

      It appears that the major liberal networks are not covering the peaceful “guns across America” rallies. There is no longer a pretence in regards to “unbiased reporting”

      The president who came into office speaking in lofty terms about bipartisanship and cooperation can only cement his legacy if he destroys the GOP. If he wants to transform American politics, he must go for the throat.
