    More than half of people in the United States have an unfavorable view of the Republican Party, the highest negative rating for the GOP in 24 years, according to a new poll released Thursday.

    Sixty-two percent of people polled said they have an unfavorable view of the GOP, the highest negative rating the party has seen since 1992, according to a Pew Research Center Poll.

    Views of the Democratic Party have remained relatively stable. Forty-five percent of the people said they see the Democratic Party favorably, while 50 percent have an unfavorable view. Meanwhile, 88 percent of Democrats have a favorable view of their party, 20 points higher than the Republicans’ ratings of the GOP.

    The poll also shows women, blacks and hispanics were more likely to have a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party than the GOP.

    Unless one is an elderly, wealthy "Pale Male" the current GOP platform (and their politicians) have little to offer for you.

    Big deal. In Canada polls consistently show Justin Trudeau's Liberals to be (relatively) wildly popular, indicating his party would receive somewhere between 44%-48% of the popular vote in a sudden election. Note that 50-60% would vote for an opposing party but these numbers are heralded as a sign of great popularity. The Republicans are in turmoil right now and given that the Party elites have been pointedly and publicly complaining about Trump (and Cruz) it's hard to forgive the average voter from being doubtful about the Party and its front runners right now.

    When Trump and Clinton are both formally nominated and the dust up of the nomination fights settle we'll have a better opportunity to see how the Average Joe feels about both parties.

    The approval rating for the Repub party is the lowest it's been since 1992.

    Hmmm... what happened in 1992?

    A Democratic party candidate named Clinton won the White House and began a successful eight year presidency.

    LOL!

    This fall we will see that happen again!

    Yes, I remember that from anthropology class. That was the distinct mating call of the now extinct megalomaniacal GOP once thriving during RJurassic period, specifically the sobeosaurus, if memory serves correctly.

    GOP gets what it deserves. Leaders don't listen to the rank-and-file, suffer the consequences.

    No we won't because most Americans have an even more unfavorable view of that crooked pathological liar Hillary than they do for republicans. Anyone who votes for the Wicked Witch of Wall Street is a treasonous traitor to this great country, period.

    So the best and brightest alternative is the elderly, wealthy truth challenged "Pale Female" from the 1960s hippie generation?

    And if you like Greece then by all means let's give her a chance and import all of those great concepts here to the States.

    I don't think the "Pale Male" from VT has a chance.

    GOP Congress so incompetent, they can't pass the salt let alone a Bill. GOP is finished as a party. They've proved they can't govern. They refuse to compromise, follow criminal child molester Hastert rule.

    Hillary & Dems will win in November.

    Hillary is not going to win in November because she is unqualified and unfit for the nation's highest office.

    I don't need meds so put a lid on that shit. Anyone who wants Hillary for President should be locked up in a psychiatric ward or sentenced to federal prison. You are all treasonous traitors to the USAicon_exclaim.gif

    The GOP unpopularity does not suggest a Hillary win. Both parties are unpopular. Even if the GOP is even less popular, Trump is not part of the party establishment. In fact he has run almost as much against the party establishment as against the Democrats.

    A good part of the GOP unpopularity plays into Trump's hands as the anti-establishment candidate similar to Sanders with the Democrats. If Hillary remains the candidate the race will be an outsider who happens to be Republican versus an establishment Democrat who most people don't like and don't trust.

    The GOP is falling apart. Whatever problems the Dems have, they are relatively minor compared with the disarray within the GOP. Have you seen Trumps negativity ratings? Hillary is walking on air by comparison and, significantly, she's the only candidate who a majority of Americans believe is qualified to be president.

    If anyone is unhinged it is you living in a fantasy that Hillary is going to win in a landslide. That is never going to happen because most Americans don't trust her and view her very unfavorably. She doesn't stand a fighting chance against Donald Trump. You are a brainless idiot. I am through with you.
