    Effective in what way? Capitulating to dems? What do you think he will accomplish? He's already a proven liar. Do you consider that a positive thing? Sorry man, not being personally critical of you for having high hopes for McConnell, I just vehemently disagree.

    ABC/WP Poll: Republicans Get a Bounce From Midterm Wins

    Republican victories in the midterm elections have translated into an immediate boost in the party’s image, putting the GOP at its highest point in eight years, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.


    The spike in the party’s standing comes after Republicans picked up nine seats to take control of the Senate, raised their numbers in the House to the highest level in more than half a century and added new governorships to its already clear majority.


    In the new poll, 47 percent say they have a favorable impression of the Republican Party, compared with 33 percent in the month before the midterm elections. An equal percentage have an unfavorable view, which marks the first time in six years that fewer than half of Americans said they saw Republicans negatively.


    The improved standing reverses a lengthy period in which the public had given Republicans declining and, ultimately, historically low ratings. Successful elections often give political parties or candidates a boost, though sometimes those improved ratings prove to be a bounce rather than a sustained change.


    Public impressions of the Democrats are now a bit worse than those of the Republicans and overall more negative than positive. More people gave the Democrats favorable ratings than they did just before the midterm elections — 44 percent compared with 39 percent. But the percentage of those rating the Democrats negatively was essentially unchanged at 50 percent, compared with 51 percent earlier. . . .


    That surprises me Jack. Although the Republicans have been slowly rising since January. According to ABC's exit poll on election day they had his:

    44% of voters view the Democratic Party favorably, 53% unfavorably
    40% of voters view the Republican Party favorably, 55% unfavorably

    Which was a substancial turn around from a year ago when CBS had

    46% viewing the Democratic Party favorably, 48% unfavorably
    29% viewing the Republican Party favorable, 63% unfavorably

    There has been a huge change in Party Affiliation also, A year ago according to Gallup
    30% identified as Democrat 23% as Republican and 46% Independent

    As of 9 Nov 2014 the latest Gallup poll
    28% identified as Democrat 28% as Republican and 41% as Independent

    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    He has already said the Keystone XL will be the first bill in the new Congress. I think he will outmaneuver the WH on BHO's immigration executive order and force the question back into legislative debate. I also think he will begin the deconstruction of Obamacare.

    My personal opinion is that public attitudes are evolving more rapidly and deeply than most observers had expected.

    The Democrats have certainly set the bar very low. All the Republican party really needs to accomplish in order to stay on top of public perception, at this point, is to not screw things up as spectacularly as the Democrats have done.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.
