GOP In Trouble

Rate this post
This is just pathetic.
Although Obama’s Approval Index rating in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll fell a point in March to match the lowest levels yet measured for the Punk-in-chief, and although Republicans currently lead on the Generic Congressional Ballot and are also trusted more than Democrats on most key issues, the GOP is unable to translate all that into an increase in Americans who identify themselves as Republicans.
The latest Rasmussen Reports polling data of May 1, 2010, find that in April, the number of adults identifying themselves as Republicans decreased 1.3%, while the number of adults not affiliated with either major party increased by 1.6%, and the number of Democrats — after declining for 4 straight months to the lowest levels on record — has increased a full percentage point! This marks the lowest level for Republicans since July 2008.
The number of Democrats in America is at 36%; the number of Republicans at 31.6%; and 32.5% say they are not affiliated with either major party. As has been the case in every month over the past seven years of tracking, there are more Democrats than Republicans in the country. The gap is currently 4.4% points, up a point from last month and the largest gap since October 2009. See the History of Party Trends from January 2004 to the present.
Rasmussen Reports tracks this information based on telephone interviews with approximately 15,000 adults per month and has been doing so since November 2002. The margin of error for the full sample is less than one percentage point, with a 95% level of confidence. Keep in mind that figures reported in this article are for all adults, not likely voters. Republicans are a bit more likely to participate in elections than Democrats.
Time for RNC Chair Michael Steele to step down or be forced out. What is at stake this November is too great to keep this ineffective, constantly whining turkey around.

  1. Got a call just this afternoon from someone collecting money for the Republican Party. In years past I have often donated, but I told her today that I was not interested and why.

  2. Until the GOP gets back to our founding principles, they will continue to be in trouble. We have some good candidates this election cycle, and that should help. BUT, we have some really bad politicians that need to be put out to pasture – and not just the old ones either. See: Lindsay Graham, Mr. I’m really a Democrat in Republican’s clothing.

  3. While the GOP is in free-fall, so are the democrats. Those calling themselves independent are on the increase and the Tea-party (Not yet a viable entity) is growing. I dumped the Repubs during the Bush administration funded the endowment for the arts. I voted for McCain as the lesser of two evils, but no thinking American can cast a vote for any individual who is a career politician. They are the ones who have destroyed this country. Our next vote should be for a new Representative Republic. Democracy is mob rule. Socialism is a back breaker. Communism is silly and never works. Military coups do not last and military leaders do not know how to run a country. Dictators are like Obama and Chavez — their power goes to their heads and they think of themselves as gods. We the people need our Representative Republic. It’ the only form of government guaranteed to work if we eliminate career politicians. That was the intention of the founders. No more dynasties like the Kennedy’s.

    • Couldn’t have said it better, Ron! I say on Nov. 2, vote all incumbents out. That’s the only way to rid America of career politicians.
      How’s the freebie wordpress account working for you, Ron?

  4. I still like yours. I’m is sort of a pickle when it comes to time. I am currently working on three paintings, attempting to edit three books and find publishers for each. I also take care of my wife’s mother who suffers from dementia. She is not a full time job but she does take some care. I’m also on a bowling league, and suffer from severe tinkeritus when it comes to the house–I am constantly remodeling or building something. I write a lot of poetry and have a published book of poems. I enjoy sculpting and work with clay whenever I have some spare time. I even try to work with a few organizations in an effort to get rid of some of the garbage in our government. I will eventually get a blog but for now I like yours and am content to spew my feeble opinions within the confines of your group of followers.

  5. Thank you

  6. Yep, the drunken sailor spending spree the repubs went on is still fresh in many people’s minds.
    Including my own.
    Yes, I will vote for them in November, but I will be holding my nose while I do it, just like in the last election.
    Thank God my congressman is Tom Price.
