NRA Influence on Voters

Dave Hardy links to a new poll that shows NRA’s impact in the elections this cycle. Overall, this looks really good. A total of 44% of voters polled claim they listen to what the NRA has to say in an election all, most or some of the time. Among independents this number is 42% on those polls.

“These numbers show that the tea party and the NRA were the two major voices that influenced voter opinion in the midterm elections,” said Brad O’Leary, publisher of The O’Leary Report.

I suspect NRA’s numbers may even be better in a year where they aren’t endorsing a lot of Dems who voted for Health Care and other measures unpopular with the Tea Party movement. But this is an overwhelming amount of influence. And the Brady’s wonder why politicians don’t want to cross us?
