Trump is slowly rupturing the Republican Party, suggests yet another new poll

By Aaron Blake at the Washington Post



The Pew Research Center released a poll Wednesday showing a sharp drop in Republican-leaning independents who say the GOP label describes them well. While 49 percent said it described them at least “fairly well” back in 2016, just 33 percent say that today. About two-thirds of these nominal Republican voters now say the term describes them “not too well” or “not well at all.”

Among Democratic-leaning voters who subscribe to the “Democrat” label, it has remained basically steady at 42 percent.


We're also seeing this bit in Quinnipiac University's regular polling on the GOP brand. Three Q polls this month have shown between 22 and 25 percent of Americans rate the brand favorably — all three ranking lowest in more than four years of polling.

A big reason for the decline: Republican respondents. Earlier this month, the percentage of Republicans with a positive view of their party dipped to a new low in Quinnipiac's polling: 58 percent. It has since rebounded to 64 percent.

1. Those poor babies are getting a reality check

And they're finding that reality is not only different from the BS they chose to believe in, but it's a lot more painful. Despite the fact that these People are also my fellow countrymen and countrywomen, my sympathy is limited. They should have known better.
