BwaaaaHaaaa! Gallup Says, “Republican Party Favorability Highest in Seven Years”

According to Gallup, “Forty-five percent of Americans now have a favorable view of the Republican Party, a nine-point gain from last September's 36%.”


Hasn’t our media been trumpeting declining support for Republicans?

Hasn’t Trump completely marginalized the GOP?

I guess they mean among the political-media class...and their 6% followers among Americans.

So much for the “Blue Wave”!

I mean, (whiney voice) “It could STILL happen!” doesn’t look good.

Worse still for Leftists, “It is the party's most positive image since it registered 47% in January 2011, shortly after taking control of the House in the 2010 midterm elections. Forty-four percent give the Democratic Party a favorable rating.” (
I DO remember that. All those Tea Partiers basking in the glow of victory, or was it the glow of the fires incinerating the DNC?!

“Republicans have usually been rated less positively than Democrats over this time, with the Republican Party's favorability rating for the last decade averaging 39%, compared with the Democratic Party's 44%.”

Over the last decade, despite those favorability differentials, the GOP won the House in the 2010 elections, the House and Senate in 2012, and kept both Houses since 2012.

Hmmmm...I wonder what all THIS means?

“Only one other time in the last decade has the Republican Party had a significantly higher score than the Democratic Party. That one exception came in November 2014, immediately after elections that saw Republicans capture control of the Senate and expand their majority in the House, when 42% rated the GOP favorably and 36% the Democrats.”

The Senate races in NJ, MO, FL, and NV were ALL supposed to be reliably Blue seats at the start of this cycle. They are all close, with MO, NV and FL leaning GOP and in NJ the corruption-crippled Bob Menendez is on the ropes.

Just 43 days to go before the ONLY “poll” that counts. It looks like we could see a lot of Leftist/Democrats channeling Hillary and whining, “Whaaa HAPPENED!?”

That would make me VERY happy!
