    A new poll shows The National Rifle Association is more popular than the Democratic party's two most prominent members, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

    According to the Gallup Poll, 58 percent of Americans surveyed said they have a favorable view of the gun rights group, while 35 percent said they have an unfavorable view.

    “In a year plagued with mass shootings, including a recent tragedy at a community college in Oregon, there has been a national debate as to whether the NRA, with its ardent support for gun rights, is somehow complicit in these shootings,” Gallup points out.

    “Gallup's survey shows that, even after shootings nationwide, Americans overall still have a favorable opinion of the NRA, as they typically have, suggesting that the public may not be specifically blaming the organization for the crimes of those who commit mass shootings.”

    Compare this to recent approval ratings for the president and former secretary of state, who is running for the Democratic nomination for president, and recently announced that she would support tougher gun laws once in office.

    According to a Gallup Poll between Oct.19-21, just under 50 percent approve of Obama’s job performance, while 45 percent disapprove. Meanwhile, in a NBC/Wall Street Journal survey of Americans taken Oct. 15-18, 39 percent of those surveyed had a favorable view of Clinton, compared to 48 percent with an unfavorable view.

    Still, no one beats Congress for the worst ratings. According to the latest Associated Press/GFK poll taken from Oct. 15-19, only 16 percent of Americans 18 years and older approve of the legislative branch’s job performance, compared to 83 percent who disapprove.

    The NRA needs to keep on with the hip, ethnic, women and other non-traditional aka, white older males, ads they are airing lately.
    They even have one with an old black woman who lives in some inner City gang infested project.:s0155:

    Keep it diverse, keep it real and start showing them on MTV orVH1 and CNN instead of WASTING $$ preaching to the choir on Fox cable news.:s0154:

    If they would intersperse clips of Hillary spouting off anti 2ndA campaign promises between the ads as well we might not end up with the admitted gun grabber as our next Prez.

    Whatever happened to the Rodham part of her name by the way? First she was just Hillary Clinton during Bill's first campaign. Then she immediately became Hillary Rodham-Clinton after he won. Then, like the chameleon she is, suddenly its dropped.

    That is an interesting poll/result. But being more popular than those two shouldn't be difficult.
