Kelly Ayotte's Approval Rating Plunges After Vote Against Gun Background Checks
Source: Huffington Post
WASHINGTON -- A new poll has New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte down a total of 15 points from her previous approval rating in a survey that followed her vote against requiring background checks for firearms purchases.
Ayotte's plunge underscores the changing politics around gun control and gun safety. In years past, lawmakers worried that a vote for gun control would bring the anger of the National Rifle Association. In the new reality, votes against gun control also carry a political risk, as the Ayotte (R) poll indicates.
A full three-quarters of New Hampshire voters support such background checks, along with 56 percent of Republicans, according to Public Policy Polling. A WMUR Granite State Poll taken in January and February found that more than 9 in 10 state residents supported implementing background checks at gun shows.
It's not entirely clear yet how opposition to background checks will play out at the polls, but there are signs Ayotte’s vote may have taken a toll.

Excellent news. Looks like voting against common sense gun laws will have serious consequences, especially in swing states like NH.

IF you have disdain for Guns, go into your "Community" and disarm the Feral Children that You and Your Brotha's have produced.
Leave alone, law abiding Americans that are "Responsible (Google "Responsible"), and Free!

This Obama BS will be forgotten by the time the next election comes around. The liberals will be trying to make it easier for Muslim immigrants to get welfare, and banning pressure cookers.
