    Poll: Fewer Republicans view own party favorably

    The percentage of those with favorable views of the Republican Party has dropped across the board since early this year, including sharply among Republicans, a Pew Research Center poll says. Fewer than a third of Americans, 32 percent, have a favorable impression of the GOP, a 9-point drop in the poll since January. Pew's survey finds that 60 percent have an unfavorable view. Positive views of the Republican Party have fallen 18 points since January among those who identify as Republican, from 86 to 68 percent.

    It has also fallen 8 points among Independents since then, from 37 to 29 percent.

    Meanwhile, the Democratic Party's ratings are closer 48 percent favorable to 47 percent unfavorable and Democrats' views on their party have remained steady, 86 percent favorable, during the GOP's dip.

    The RNC will chalk that up to a Left Wing Media and will blame their 2016 Presidential loss on voter fraud. Yawn

    And, while some may jump to conclude that the GOP will die, that isn't entirely true. It will likely just change some of their views on social issues. The recent rash of race, marriage and some other issues are likely the last gasp for the extreme parts of the GOP. The rest will either evolve, or breakup and startup something very similar.
    Thanks from MaryAnne

    Because democrats are sheep who do not think for themselves, they simply do as they are told.

    I would guess that the primary reason is because Republicans promised to bring a halt to Obama's agenda if they were given Congress in 2014, and really haven't delivered.

    One can say that he's largely done it through executive authority alone, but at the same time Republicans in Congress have made no real effort to challenge that authority, beyond lip service.

    Meanwhile, most objective observers agree that Obama has done nearly everything in his second term that he had any realistic chance of doing without direct Congressional cooperation.

    No they have rejected their conservative base and the principles the GOP was founded on. They appear to be more like democrats than GOP. The Washington establishment have taken over and their hate for conservatives like Cruz and the tea party shows the GOP leadership rejects conservatives
