Despite Anti-Gun Grandstanding, NRA Is Popular As Ever

posted on October 23, 2015

Earlier this month, Hillary Clinton proclaimed, “It’s time the entire country stand up against the NRA.” While the mainstream media cheered its approval, the results of a recent Gallup poll suggest this isn’t likely to happen anytime soon.

From Oct. 7-11, 2015, Gallup surveyed more than 1,000 adults on their feelings about the NRA, and found a “solid majority” (58 percent) of Americans have an “overall favorable” opinion of NRA. This number, which has been rising steadily since December 2012, is only two percentage points below its all-time high. The poll also revealed that a record number indicated their opinion of NRA is “very favorable.” 

Approval for NRA among conservatives was predictably high, at 77 percent. But a majority of moderates (56 percent) and even 30 percent of liberals shared these positive sentiments. Even more surprisingly, among those who do not own guns, those who view NRA favorably still maintain a seven-percentage-point edge (49-to-42).
