Via Steve Benen, CNN’s latest poll shows decent news for Democrats — but only because the Republicans and tea party performed so poorly in the numbers.
A lot of that anger seems directed toward the GOP. According to the survey, favorable views of the Republican party dropped eight points over the past month, to 33 percent. Fifty-nine percent say they have an unfavorable view of the Republican party, an all-time high dating back to 1992 when the question was first asked.
The poll indicates that views of the Democratic party, by contrast, have remained fairly steady, with 47 percent saying they have a favorable view of the Democrats and an equal amount saying they hold an unfavorable view.
Here’s the chart illustrating the results.
The Republicans are destructive bastards and everyone knows it.
Now if I was running the Democratic Party, I would seize on this with a national campaign emphasizing the Republican sabotaging of the economy. But, as always, we can probably count on the Dems to fumble this like always.
