Repubs at their highest favorable rating since 2011???? Really??

Just less than half of Americans -- 45% -- said they have a favorable view of the Republican party, according to a Gallup poll released Monday. And while the party fears a difficult midterm Election Day in November, this is the highest favorable view of the party since January 2011, when the party hit 47%, immediately after retaking Congress during the 2010 midterm elections.

In 2010, during President Barack Obama's first term midterm elections, Republicans won six seats in the Senate and 63 in the House. In November of that year, the party's favorability was 45%, the same as it is now.

Mid-terms are the only poll that matters.

3. Don't believe the hype. Gallup is notoriously right wing.
