Just 23% of Americans believe the Republican Party is “in touch with the concerns of most people in the United States today,” while 70% believe that it is “out of touch.” Among independents, those numbers are 23% to 70%. Among moderates they’re 20% to 75%.
The problem, however, is that Americans seem to be voting all kinds of Republicans into state-level offices. 30 out of 50 states have Republican governors, even though voters seem to believe they’re out of touch. Perhaps it’s because they associate the party with Congress. I don’t know, but it’s a little confounding.
