NRA Touted As A Big Presidential Election Night Winner

posted on November 10, 2016

It was one of the most shocking political triumphs in American history, as Donald Trump became the 45th president of the United States. The morning after, thehill.com compiled a list of their biggest winners and losers on the election night. 

The losers list included the usual suspects. First, the media and pollsters, who got “it all wrong.” They also listed President Obama, for the damage to his eight-year legacy. Winners were Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Vice President-elect Mike Pence. 

But perhaps the biggest winner listed was the National Rifle Association. The NRA endorsed Trump in May, and once the victory was confirmed the organization sent a press release stating voters “sent a loud and clear message that our gun rights are not for sale.” NBC’s Chuck Todd actually noted their importance even before Tuesday’s results were final, saying on air the NRA “came through big, this is a big night for the NRA.”
