Americans hate Republicans

By Michael J.W. Stickings

Unpopularity, thy name is the Republican Party:

With the Republican-controlled House of Representatives engaged in a tense, government-shuttering budgetary standoff against a Democratic president and Senate, the Republican Party is now viewed favorably by 28% of Americans, down from 38% in September. This is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992.

Don't get me wrong, the Democrats aren't exactly knocking it out of the park either. They're at just 43% themselves.

But it's pretty clear that Americans' ire and frustration is targeted -- understandably, justifiably -- at Republicans.

And that the Republicans -- holding the country hostage to their extremist right-wing demands and sabotaging American democracy in the process -- are dragging the Democrats down with them into the abyss, or at least trying to.
