Republicans Are Fed Up With Republicans

National Journal Brian Resnick 4 hours ago

Favorability ratings for Republicans are at historic lows.

According to the latest from Gallup, 62 percent of Americans now view the Grand Old Party unfavorably, with the numbers rising sharply in recent weeks. Dislike of Democrats has increased as well, but by a tiny degree in comparison.

Republicans haven't been this despised since the end of 2008, right before Democrats rushed into the House and Senate in a wave.

But perhaps more interesting is Gallup's inspection of how Republicans feel about their own party. The headlines about Republicans lately reflect a fissure in the party, and polls may have tapped into that. The Gallup poll finds that Republicans are twice as likely to view their own party unfavorably than Democrats. Twenty-seven percent of Republicans don't like their own party right now, and that's rising at a greater rate when compared to self-hating Democrats.

"The GOP's unfavorable rating among Republicans is up 8 points from September, compared with a 1-point rise in Democratic Party unfavorables among Democrats," Gallup reported. The poll was conducted between Oct. 3 and Oct. 6 among a random sample of 1,028 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

Republican displeasure with Republicans was bubbling up before the government shutdown. A week before the shutdown, 51 percent of Republican respondents in a United Technologies/National Journal Congressional Connection Poll said Congress should continue funding the government and deal with Obamacare afterward. Their leaders did the opposite, insisting that the continuing resolution be tied to changes in the Affordable Care Act.

This is what the MSM chooses to report on the very day Obama's approvals reach all time lows.

Hilarious.

John McCain was always more favored by the Media than the GOP.

True that, and what they think is that 62% think they’re too extreme and conservative....writer has no clue that probably 25% think they’re too moderate and too wimpy.

That’s why these over all surveys are meaningless......on approvals, the why is more important than the how much. The whys are never part of this survey.

OK, thanks for noting that. But in general, Yahoo prints all the news that fits the liberal agenda.

Republican displeasure with Republicans was bubbling up before the government shutdown.

Of course, since then, this trend has reversed somewhat but we won't report on that.

The reasons I am fed up with the Republicans have nothing to do with what the media thinks it does.

1. Where are the Articles of Impeachment?
2. How does Holder still have a job?
3. How does Barry Obama get away with using a Conn. SS number? Fast n Furious? Bengazi? Etc.
4. Not cutting government spending enough
5. Can not articulate their way out of a wet paper bag
6. Messaging is horrible
7. Leadership is horrible
8. McCain poping off at the mouth. How did we ever let this nutjob be our Presidential candidate?

That was the first thing that came to my mind as well. I despise RINOs as nuch, if not more than the rats.

And they love to co-mingle these stories right along side with the other legit news - so that the low-info crowd reads this and interprets it as 'news'...not opinion.

It’s so cute to see them keep trying.

If the Republicans were going to fold, they would do it ASAP.

This will go on until the Democrats crack.

I predict this will happen next week (one year delay of individual).

Also notable is what Yahoo chooses not to publish. No contrary views from conservatives are given any space whatsoever. It is all filtered out.

"Republicans haven't been this despised since the end of 2008, right before Democrats rushed into the House and Senate in a wave."

Actually, the Democrats took over the House and Senate in 2006. Another fake but accurate story in the corrupt media.

But why are Republicans fed up with Republicans? They're fed up, because the RINO Establishment are going along with Obama and Big Government. The implication is that Republicans are fed up with the government shutdown and with Tea Party Extremists. Wrong!
