A Game-Changer In Iowa?

posted on May 21, 2015

The NRA’s 2014 exit polling has revealed some interesting insight into the impact and influence of the Association on voters. A case report by The Washington Times looks specifically at Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District. With the Democrat-controlled district claiming 75 percent of voters from urban areas, it wouldn’t be an area most would advise the NRA to wade into. Yet that’s exactly what they did, and the result was that Republican David Young defeated Staci Appel by 10 points.

Use Your Power

So what happened? Of voters with a favorable impression of NRA, a high percentage (81 percent) voted accordingly. Conversely, only 8 percent of voters said NRA’s support of Young compelled them to vote for Appel. In the end, NRA defied conventional political wisdom and walked away with a hard-fought victory. With your help, we can do it again—on a massive scale—in 2016. If you’re not a member, join today!
