In a new Rasmussen Reports poll, 54% of likely voters viewed the NRA favorably, compared to only 42% who viewed the NEA (the largest teacher's union in America) favorably.

And just to show which group is more in touch with America -- Rasmussen's poll also said that though 55% of the "political class" had a favorable opinion of NEA, "the plurality (45%) of Mainstream voters does not." When it comes to the NRA, 75% of the political class "don't care for" it, but 61% of mainstream voters do.

When it comes to who views the group unfavorably, though, the NRA also draws higher numbers. They got a 41% unfavorable response compared to 37% for the NEA.
