Fifty-four percent of Americans have a favorable opinion of the National Rifle Association, while 38% have an unfavorable opinion
The public’s ratings of the NRA have fluctuated since first measured by Gallup in 1993 — from a low of 42% favorable in 1995 to a high of 60% in 2005. Americans’ distrust in the media hit a new high recently, with 60% saying that they have little or no trust in the mass media to report the news fully, accurately, and fairly. Distrust is up from the past few years, when Americans were already more negative about the media than they had been in years prior to 2004.
