Poll Shows Enthusiasm for David Hogg's Anti-Gun Movement is Dwindling
Another day, another mind-numbingly idiotic tweet from our favorite chin-impaired anti-gun movement figurehead, little Davey Hogg.
The sound of gunfire echoes everywhere. You hear it in our cities, towns, and it brings grief to our Native America… https://t.co/BdcQo2ulEi— David Hogg (@David Hogg)1528392067.0
Obviously, young Dave's never lived in a rural area before, because bang bang noises aren't the least bit triggering to us country-folk. Also, I'm not sure how the red man factors into the equation. I'm sure there are a fair amount of boomsticks among the tribes.
There's one more problem with Hoggy's tweet. Enthusiasm for his cause is fading. Fast:
Six percent of Americans aged 15 to 34 consider gun control the top issue facing the country, according to a new Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and MTV poll reported on Wednesday.
That number is down from a high of 21 percent who considered it the top issue in March, according to the poll.
Four in 10 surveyed still gave the government an “F” grade on handling gun control issues.
These numbers come in as March For Our Lives organizers like David Hogg remain in the news, most recently for pressuring Publix to end contributions to Florida Republican gubernatorial candidate Adam Putnam over his support for the National Rifle Association.
I guess nobody let Dave know his fellow teen folk are a fickle lot who abandon one cause for another on a frequent basis.
Now, I'm sure those numbers will climb back up once another loon with a gat pops off in a schoolhouse somewhere. Also, the kiddos still don't appear to be too keen on the boomsticks. At least the left-leaning teen crowd who can still stomach the clusterfu*k that is MTV.
Still, these numbers go to show the Hogginator's crusade is more of a fad than a lasting movement. The same way Black Lives Matter faded into obscurity. Antifa ninjas receded to their parents' basements. Tide Pods reverted from cuisine back to detergent.
Safe to say, people on both sides are getting burned-out on the Hogg and his ilk's incessant anti-gunnery.
