According to a new PPP poll, the NRA’s position on gun control has become so toxic that voters view NRA support as a reason not to support a candidate
The latest PPP survey, found that 39% say they would be less likely to vote for a candidate who had the NRA’s support to just 26% who say they’d be more likely to, with 32% saying it wouldn’t influence them one way or the other. Among independents 41% consider an NRA endorsement to be a turn off to 27% who say it’s a plus.”
The NRA strategy of trying to stop gun control through a combination of fearmongering and threats appears to be backfiring. Despite Wayne LaPierre’s best efforts to both misinform and frighten, 53% of voters support stricter gun laws, while 39% are opposed. This is the same result as last month’s 53%/40% split. Fifty one percent of voters support an assault weapons ban. Forty two percent oppose. Surprisingly, 26% of Republican support banning assault weapons. It seems tht the impact of the Newtown shooting is stronger than the NRA’s propaganda push back.
