Hold the presses! Mainstream media has discovered republican voters are dissatisfied with the Republican Party!
Wait a minute. They attribute this to the presidential campaign? USA Today reported the following:
The already raucous Republican presidential campaign may be hurting the party’s brand.
Only 32% of respondents said they had a favorable opinion on the Republican Party in a new Pew Research Center poll — the lowest number Pew has reported at any point since 1992, though there have been a couple of 33% ratings during that time. The party is viewed unfavorably by 60% of respondents, again the party’s worst score.
The results mark a steep drop for the party since the start of the year. In January, Pew found that 41% of poll respondents had a favorable view of the GOP, while 53% were unfavorable.
Oddly, the biggest drop in GOP favorability is among Republicans.
This has nothing to do with the republican primary. Conservatives have been fed up for a long time. Establishment republicans have been playing us for a bunch of suckers for years. This poll is a reflection of dissatisfaction with the inertia and lies of a party that has embraced big government without having the balls to admit it.
