    and the latest Gallup Poll shows the GOP at its lowest approval rating


    No, Republicans, the Gallup Poll is not a limbo contest.

    Republicans seem to be playing “how low can you go.” Just 28 percent of Americans have a favorable impression of the GOP, according to the latest monthly Gallup tracking poll. The number ” is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992,” the polling company stated.

    The number is 10 points lower than the party scored in the same poll in September.

    Democrats, meanwhile, got a favorable rating from only 43 percent of respondents, down four points from last month.

    The contrasting numbers seem to demonstrate the way blame for the government shutdown is being allocated to the respective parties by the public.

    The poll surveyed 1,028 adults between Oct. 3 and Oct. 6.

    The only similar trend in the poll’s history was the rating of Republicans after the vote to impeach President Bill Clinton in December 1998. Then, Republicans dropped 12 points, from 43 percent to 31 percent, although the party’s popularity recovered somewhat in subsequent months.
    Great strategy tea party parasites..... your host will soon be dead and you will need a new one to glom onto and suck dry.

    Absolutely. Obama, or other more powerful leftists, will tell them what to think and they'll think it.

    And if everyone doesn't think the same thoughts, like the Stepford wives, than they are called 'disorganized'.

    Are there any facts, figures, or historical information that would change your mind and cause you to reject liberalism?

    Republicans are killing their party.

    There is a growing fear among Washington Republicans that the party, which has lost two national elections in a row, is headed for history’s dustbin. And I believe that they are right to worry.

    The battle over the shutdown has highlighted the cracks and fissures within the party. The party’s leadership has begun to lose control of its members in Congress. The party’s base has become increasingly shrill and is almost as dissatisfied with the Republican leadership in Washington as it is with President Obama. New conservative groups have echoed, and taken advantage of, this sentiment by targeting Republicans identified with the leadership for defeat. And a growing group of Republican politicians, who owe their election to these groups, has carried the battle into the halls of Congress. That is spelling doom for the Republican coalition that has kept the party afloat for the last two decades.
    That Republicans like you don't seem to notice or care is...Awesome!!!

    Well then there is no use to continue, the elections are over so why continue wasting your time here. I really don't care, love watching this country being destroyed by the likes of people like you. I live in TX, not a thing to worry about here. Have my kids and grandkids here so life is great. What a wonderful country with all those little socialist Obamabots wandering around telling us all that the world as we know it is over and they are in charge.

    Ah. Another anti-RINO Puritan. I thank you, BTW. Without your ilk, the GOP would never have died the slow beautiful agonizing death we are all witnessing today.

    Cheers.
