Newly Released Poll Delivers Bad News For The NRA And Republicans

The vast majority Americans believe the National Rifle Association (NRA) has “too much influence” over U.S. politicians and want that to change, according to a Qunnipiac University poll released Tuesday.

In the poll, 60 percent of Americans said that the pro-gun lobbying group has “too much influence” over lawmakers, while just 26 percent said the organization has the “right” amount of influence and only seven percent who says the NRA is not influential enough.

Voters also believe Republican lawmakers fear the NRA more than Democrats. Fifty-four percent said Republicans in Congress are scared of the NRA.

In the same poll, voters rejected Trump’s suggestion to arm teachers in the wake of last month’s shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people.

According to the survey, 58 percent said the plan is a bad idea. Just 40 percent of voters support giving guns to teachers.

The NRA, which is widely condemned for its lobbying of gun sales in the United States, spends about $3 million a year on influencing gun policy. The result? There were 345 mass shootings in the US in 2017 alone.
