    What a joke. FOXnews is its "fair and balanced" coverage of polls fails to mention that the NRA is more popular than all 14 Republican candidates as well!

    It's the Gallop Poll, not as Fox poll.

    It's a FOXnews article that only mentioned the parts of the polls that it liked. Typical misleading pseudo-journalism.

    I'm not particularly enamored with any of The Republicans but it's an interesting factoid the Americans love their guns more than the love their politicians

    Is it relevant? The Democratic candidates are, in general, anti-NRA, so the poll demonstrates that respondents are more pro-NRA than anti-NRA. The GOP candidates are pro-NRA anyway.

    Of course. The FAUXnews article misleadingly suggests that only Democratic candidates are less popular than the NRA, when in fact all candidates are less popular than the NRA.

    No it doesn't! The poll demonstrates that respondents are more pro-NRA than they are pro-candidate . . . any candidate.

    So what? They still are not as popular as the NRA.

    That's because the NRA actually does something to protect our rights instead of just talk about it.
