NRA Has Higher Favorability Rating than Both Obama and the Media

Posted 12/30/2012

CNS News

Recent polling data show that the National Rifle Association has a higher favorability rating than both President Barack Obama and the mainstream media.

Fifty-four percent of Americans said they have a favorable opinion of the NRA according to a USA Today/Gallup Poll conducted Dec. 19-22.

A Gallup poll released earlier this year showed that Americans’ distrust of the media hit a new high with 60 percent saying they had little or no trust in the mass media while 40 percent said they had a great deal or fair amount of trust.

Barack Obama’s popularity falls short of each with a Huffington Post poll showing the president’s average favorability at 52.3 percent.

This average includes ratings of 53 percent in a December 9 NBC News/Wall Street Journal pol; 56 percent in a November 18 CNN poll; 49 percent in a December 16 CBS News poll and 52 percent in a Politico/GWU/Battleground poll; and a Gallup/USA Today poll from Nov. 12 showing a 58 percent favorable rating.
