The National Rifle Association has limited sway over the American electorate, according to a survey released Tuesday from Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling.
A slight plurality of voters nationwide, 39 percent, said they would be less likely to support a candidate who's earned an endorsement from the NRA, while just 26 percent of voters said they'd be more likely to back such a candidate. Thirty-two percent said the endorsement wouldn't make a difference on their vote.
A huge majority of Democrats, 62 percent, said an NRA endorsement would make them less likely to support a candidate. Forty-two percent of Republicans said they would be more likely to vote for an NRA-backed candidate, but 45 percent said it wouldn't make a difference.
