Ayotte getting pummeled.

 “After watching her approval rating plummet by the double digits, Republican Sen. Kelly Ayotte is now scrambling to control the damage caused by her “no” vote on the recent background checks bill on gun sales.”
 “Ayotte was one of the 54 senators who rejected Sens. Joe Manchin and Pat Toomey’s bipartisan legislation to expand background checks to gun show and Internet sales, countering a recent Public Policy Polling survey that showed 75% of her constituents supported the reforms. Her approval rating subsequently sunk by a net 15 points to 44%.”
GOOD!   This is how you beat the NRA.  Everyone likes to talk about how powerful the NRA is… you can’t possibly go against them.  But the American Voter is pretty powerful too.  Nothing speaks louder then falling poll numbers.  When most people want something and you vote against them anyway there is a price to pay.  Running this lady out of Washington will send a powerful message.  I hope they follow through.
