Despite constant hammering by the national news media, the National Rifle Association has a favorability rating of 54% in the latest Gallup survey, slightly higher than Obama's rating of 53%

While those figures are within the poll's margin of error, they show that the NRA's popularity is in the same range as that of Obama who issued 23 executive orders to accomplish goals that the gun-rights group has promised to combat in “the fight of the century.” According to an article by Frank Newport, the Gallup poll - which was conducted December 19-22, 2012 - showed that only 38% of those surveyed have an unfavorable opinion of the NRA, while Obama's disapproval rating is three points higher at 41%.
