A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll shows that companies who decided to sever ties with the National Rifle Association are taking a beating in public perception.

Turns out Americans don’t like being bullied by the anti-gun mafia and their little boycotts.

Companies such as Delta, United, as well as a host of national car rental chains, ended various discount programs with NRA members, cowardly caving into an ill-informed mob of high school students.

The POLITICO poll measured favorability ratings for several of these companies and found out each one dropped significantly in public perception after they dropped the NRA.

It’s interesting how POLITICO took a poll that shows a universal decline in public perception and made the headline to that particular question indicate ‘Americans are split.’

They’re split by party, as Democrats, long supporters of squashing free speech and squeezing the life out of businesses who don’t champion their cause, all looked at these companies in a more favorable light.

However, as Democrats don’t make up the majority, adding Republicans and independents into the mix makes the favorability rating drop – and drop significantly.

Enterprise, for example, one of the first companies to announce they would no longer offer discounts to NRA members took the biggest hit, practically halving their rating.

That’s not a ‘split.’

The new poll also indicates a majority of Americans approve of President Trump’s plan to allow teachers to conceal carry in their school.

Odd, we’re pretty sure the mainstream media has been trying to portray that idea as a one-way ticket to Crazy Town.

Despite overwhelming coverage skewed to support gun-control advocates as the mainstream in America, it turns out the people aren’t buying into it.

The media has been hoping that these boycotts will hurt the NRA. It looks like they’re actually hurting the businesses. The same business who ran and hid from the NRA faster than a Broward County deputy.
