Is the NRA doomed? | The Tylt
For the first time ever, more Americans view the National Rifle Association negatively than positively. Gun-control advocates say the Parkland students and the grassroots movement they inspired, combined with the NRA's attacks on the teenage activists, caused this shift in public opinion, and many think that shift could spell the end of the NRA's dominance over American politics. But others argue two out of three gun owners still view the organization favorably. Is the NRA losing power?
Is the NRA doomed?
New polling post-Parkland finds that, for the first time in modern history, views of the NRA are net negative among voters.— Matt McDermott (@mattmfm) March 27, 2018
The biggest declines come from white women and moderate Republicans.
This a big deal: without public support, the NRA’s lobbying clout vanishes.
It's because the kids aren't afraid of them, and they just don't know how to handle it. None of their money or posturing matters to the kids. In fact, it just makes them look ridiculous to them. And that's the truth the NRA can't handle: That they are, in fact, ridiculous. https://t.co/aANHNW98B9— John Scalzi (@scalzi) March 26, 2018
