Republicans may have made major gains in the November elections, but they have yet to win the hearts and minds of the American people, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

Hahaha, they haven't even been sworn in yet, and the progressive media has already decided that they're losers.

Support term limits for the politicians over at ABC and the WaPo - DEFUND THEM.

Rush just talked about this. No one can find morons to participate in a poll like the MSM. ‘Your opinions are invalid because you are an idiot’. That would be my reply after the poll question was answered. But, then again the MSM needs idiots. The more the merrier.

Whatever they say, one thing is for sure:

The American people are really not buying the Democrat brand these days.

I hate to give the WaPo credit on anything - but truth be told, the GOP has yet to prove that we can govern.

We lost the trust of this nation four years ago. We’ve been given a reprieve of sorts - at least in the House and in many state legislatures and Governorships.

I think that a lot of the US is sitting back and saying “OK, we gave you the keys. Let’s see if you can drive properly this time”.

I'm not sold on the GOP yet. Give past performance then all be turned into whores before the end of January.

K street whores. Just like good ole' fan favorite Tom DeLay.

I hope I'm wrong, but not holding my breath.

The idiots who write for the Washington Post may not understand that the people who were elected on November 2nd don't take office until January 4th.

More probably, they think their readers are idiots who don't know this, and they can put some propaganda points on the scoreboard while the other team's bus still pulling up to the player's entrance. They know that the home team's fans don't give a flying excrement how they win, as long as the win.

Remember when they called Christian voters "...uneducated and easily led." Seems like only yesterday.

The public wasn't sold on the Dems either but that didn't stop them from ramming unpopular socialist legislation down the throats of the American people!!
Conservatives should reduce government and follow the Constitution!

They are losers because their people in Congress awaiting them are not making a stand against the Democrats. It is time for a Third Party and if we lose so be it because it cant get much worse.

Wapo recycles more stories than anyone. They should be given an award. This one was rediscovered while looking for belly button lint.

-—————I hate to give the WaPo credit on anything - but truth be told, the GOP has yet to prove that we can govern.————

How can they prove it? They haven’t been sworn in. See the problem here?

-—————of this nation four years ago.——————

The WaPo didn’t poll about the GOP 4 years ago.

It needs to be said: I agree with you on substance but you and I are not on the same page as the WaPo. This article is pure propaganda and is designed to discredit the new incoming tea party candidates.

They’re losers before they even make it in the gates. Game over. That’s the message.

Agreed. But I'm not willing to give the WaPo credit for anything because thats assuredly not what this article is about.

See post 15.

Same as I just said. You and I agree on substance and about being screwed by the GOP in years gone past, but that is in no way what the propagandists’ message is.

Why the surprise? Boehner hasn’t been sworn in as speaker yet, and he’s already caved to The One how many times?

It’s too bad that we couldn’t get Bachmann in there as speaker of the house.

That would be fun! :-)

I wonder if this could have anything to do with the fact that Republicans have loaded the omnibus bill with pork.

I don’t get it. Do they need to add hearing aids to their earmarks?

I'd say this is 'circling the drain' kind of stuff .. but we all know the lefty liprags went down the drain long ago..

They remain sewer dwellers to this day.. hence 'compost' is a good fit.

November 2012 January 2013 can't get here fast enough.

Then send the DoJ on a mission to paddle the media hatemongers and liars back to their senses.. They like getting paddled like the rat bastards they are or so I hear. ;-)

Yep, they polled the same stupid ones that voted for the big “O”.

While I get the DNC propaganda aspect of this article, there are plenty of Republicans that have reached across the aisle to assist the Dems in the expansion of statism in this country.

Keep in mind, Republican does not always = Conservative.

If there is anyone who has not won the hearts and minds of the American people it is the Washington Post and ABC. They have lost all credibility and continue to believe they are, in any way, relevant.

I’m not sold yet on the Republican nominee for President in 2012. The only thing I know for certain is that they are stupid and can’t give a speech like Obey-me.

Shall we do a poll?

And to prove the point, just look at the post immediately above this one.

It's about the two Republican Senators who held a news conference about Harry Reid and the excess spending. It turns out they are both all porked -up themselves. So the press went after these two clowns for the obvious hypocrisy. Idiots.

They are losers. They just polluted a tax bill with pork. The people not sworn in yet have clemency but the Republicans alrady serving do not.

Exemption are the four Republicans that voted against the tax and spend bill because of the spending.

If the new Senators don’t get “rolled” by McLame, McConnell, Pansy, Brown, Lugar, Cornyn, the Maine Twins, and others, we might have a fightin’ chance. But, look at the uphill battle any Conservative Senator has.
