For the first time since 2000, the NRA is seen more negatively than positively, according to an NBC/WSJ poll. Over the last year, the NRA has taken hits after tragic shootings like Vegas, Sutherland Springs and most recently, Parkland.

By the numbers: Since April 2017, there has been a 7% increase in the negative view of the NRA from Americans, moving from 33% to 40%. The poll also shows that the organization lost significant ground with white, married women, where favorability dropped 15%.
