Poll on NRA, other groups
Via the Bitch Girls:
A Harris poll on various organizations yields some interesting results.
NRA, at 90%, has the highest name recognition (Greenpeace is at 81, ACLU at 80, Sierra Club 64, Common Cause 24).
As would be expected of an advocacy group, it tends to have high positives and negatives (48/52% trust or don't trust). Sierra Club does better (59/41), and ACLU is about the same (49/51), altho it has the highest ratings of "do not trust at all". AFL-CIO came off the worst (41/59).
The partisan breakdown is hardly surprising -- Democrats are more likely to distrust the NRA, and Republicans to distrust the ACLU. Only the Nature Conservancy and AARP do well with both parties.
