    Democrat Party Popularity Sinks To Quarter-Century Low

    When even CNN admits nobody likes Democrats, you know the party of Jefferson Davis is in trouble. In a rare display of journalism, CNN reports that favorable views of the Democrat Party have crashed to their lowest level in over 25 years, according to a recent poll conducted by SSRS. Only 37% of Americans hold a favorable view of Democrats, down from 45% in March and an enviable 62% the week Barack Obama first became president. Election Day 2008 proved the high mark of Democrat popularity in recent years, sliding steadily downward as the American people experienced Democrat governance.

    Republican approval is no higher at just 30%, according to the poll, although GOP popularity has never exceeded 48% in that period, despite consistent Republican victories across all levels of government since 2009. Whereas Democrats mustered 52% approval during the week of Barack Obamaís re-election victory in 2012, Republicans required no such numbers to score major congressional wins in 2010 and 2014. Both parties ran neck and neck in the high 30s and low 40s during the 2016 presidential election, which culminated in Donald Trumpís landslide victory over Hillary Clinton.

    Low approval ratings reflect disaffection not merely among the Democrat Partyís rank-and-file but indeed at its highest levels of leadership. Just last week, former Democrat National Committee chairman Donna Brazile explained how Hillary Clinton bribed the party committee for control over hiring and strategy decisions. Brazileís tell-all marks the first public affirmation the former DNC chief has made on Clintonís election rigging since she confessed to passing debate questions along to Hillary in an effort to disadvantage Clintonís primary opponent Bernie Sanders.



    CNN Poll: Democrat Party Popularity Sinks To Quarter-Century Low
    Real news.
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    That is a pretty impressive feat of linguistic gymnastics. Your propaganda source twists itself into knots to make it appear that Dems are in trouble or in a worse position than Rs. I bet you and many of the mentally challenged on here fell for the way this is written.

    Yes...the Dem numbers are lower. However, even a dullard like you should be able to tell that the Rs number of 30 is lower than the D number of 37 and that the recent high for D (62) is higher than the recent high for Rs (48).

    You can understand that can't you?

    It would appear that both parties have a low score.

    The Democrats earned their low score by running a crook for president and fixing the election to beat Bernie,
    and the Republicans earned their low score by abandoning the person the people voted for.

    Trump is a winner on both counts.,

    It is more or less the exact same thing that was said about republicans after the 2008 election. Next presidential election it will probably return to that.

    With luck both major parties will get torn down.
    If what I say offends you then you really don't want to hear what I keep to myself.

    what part of 'lowest approval rating in 25 yrs' is difficult to understand

    NO the have doubled down on TRUMP is the devil and screeching and caterwauling from both coasts

    Trump's approval rating is historically low as well. But when that's brought up it's brushed to the side and the whole "we don't trust polls" statement tends to come out. Should we trust this poll solely because it's painting the "other party" in a bad light?

    It seems you will trust anything that is anti-Trump.
    I get this from watching your posts here.

    but its CNN


    frankly it all depends on when and what questions were asked .... how much 'over sampling' is done
    liberal pollsters / news organizations claim 'fairness' but when one digs into the methods polls are heavily skewed for the negative results they are looking for





    Evaluating the Trump 'poll' Numbers
    - Still 85% approval rating among Republicans
    - down are Democrats / Independents
    - heavily over sampled on Democrats
    - robo calls in coastal areas / cities largely populated with democrats

    now would you call that a fair poll

    You ASSume too much. You assume that I believe any of these polls.

    I'm asking GURPS in particular because, you know, he created the thread. I'm asking why create this thread in order to point out poll numbers that indicate low approval ratings for the Democrat party only to ignore poll numbers that indicate low approval numbers for Trump?

    But don't let that stop you from posting your bull####.
