Wow, Republicans now disliking Republicans

My question is just how much lower can the Rethug party fall? I'm wondering if alot of moderate Repubs will now become Independent voters, or possibly Dems:


The latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds that 49% of Americans hold a negative view of the Republican Party while 26% have a positive view. By comparison, the Democratic Party has a net positive rating, with 44% holding a favorable view of the party and 38% holding an unfavorable one.

First Read: "By the way, most of the recent negative movement for the GOP is among core Republicans. The GOP was already viewed very negatively by Democrats and indies; it couldn't really get much worse with those two groups. So this latest shift for the GOP is due to the fact that a growing number of core Republicans were not happy with how the party handled the fiscal cliff."

1. Are GOPers unhappy

because they felt that the GOP was too extreme in handling the fiscal cliff or (gulp) not enough?

4. Not enough.

The Republicans chickened out & betrayed their Tea Party principles.

2. They've reached rock bottom, now they're bringing in the jackhammers and dynamite!

I think they're trying to reach the Earth's core, like one of those really bad SyFy channel weekend movies!

5. I love this

 

Let the Repubs speak out more about their real views on women and birth control, etc. That way, their approval ratings will fall even further, and their party will lose again in 2016.
