(PPP) Americans consider NRA endorsement to be a negative

Source: Public Policy Polling

Raleigh, N.C.– Much has been made in recent weeks about the NRA's political strength,
but PPP's newest national poll finds more voters consider their endorsement to be a
negative than a positive. 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.

In general 53% of voters say they support stricter gun laws in the country to 39% who are
opposed to them. Those numbers are basically identical to a 53/40 spread a month ago,
suggesting that the desire for stronger legislation has not died down as Newtown
gradually fades from voters' minds. On the specific issue of an assault weapons ban 51%
of voters are supportive to 42% who are opposed. It has support from a solid majority of
Democrats, as well as 26% of Republicans.

“Politicians really don’t have to be scared of the NRA,” said Dean Debnam, President of
Public Policy Polling.“Voters consider its support to be a negative thing.”

The polls are skewed! They oversample Democrats! Romney will win by 4 points - RealClearPolitics says so!
