The NRA is running out of places to hide. Even a Fox News poll found people are losing faith in the group.
There could hardly be a more favorable place for the National Rifle Association to have its popularity tested. Instead, a new poll commissioned by Fox News found that the NRA's approval has dipped to 49%, down from 56% in 2013. Negative views of the group have also risen to a "record high" of 45%. The NRA's popularity is even dipping among gun owners, dropping to 67% from a high of 71% in 2013.
At the same time, 90% of gun-owning households support expanding background checks to include sales at gun shows and private sales.
