Gallup: Democrat Image Hits Record Low

From Gallup:

Democratic Party Image Drops to Record Low

Favorable images of Democratic, Republican Parties now tied

PRINCETON, NJ — Americans’ favorable rating of the Democratic Party dropped to 41% in a late March USA Today/Gallup poll, the lowest point in the 18-year history of this measure. Favorable impressions of the Republican Party are now at 42%, thus closing the gap between the two parties’ images that has prevailed for the past four years.

Gallup last measured party images in late August/early September of last year. At that point, the Democratic Party enjoyed an 11-point favorable image advantage over the Republican Party. Now, the favorable ratings of the two parties are essentially tied.

The images of the two major parties have particular significance in a midterm election year. For example, the favorable rating of the Democratic Party exceeded that of the Republican Party by 52% to 37% just prior to the 2006 midterm elections, in which the Democrats gained 31 House seats.

Americans’ current 41% favorable rating of the Democratic Party is five points lower than the party’s previous low, recorded twice in 2005.

By contrast, the Republican Party’s image reached its all-time low of 31% in December 1998 — just after the House of Representatives voted to impeach President Bill Clinton. The Republicans’ current rating is improved from a pair of 34% ratings Gallup measured in late 2008 and in May 2009.

Partisan Ratings

The Democratic Party’s favorable image has dropped among all three partisan groups compared to August/early September 2009…

Of course this is just more nonsense from those sixth graders with crayons at Gallup. At least according to White House spokesman, Robert Gibbs.

But it looks like Mr. Obama’s ‘charm offensive’ isn’t working. Nor, for that matter, is Harry Reid’s.

Maybe it’s true. Maybe you really can’t fool all of the people all of the time. Or even most of them. Which could be very bad news for Democrats.

Unfortunately, the Democrats don’t have to worry about their image. They know they can win elections the old fashioned way — by buying them.

And we not just by handing out cartons of cigarettes or ‘walking around money,’ which, of course, they still do. But Democrats buy the votes they need with their ‘social justice’ programs, their ‘income redistribution.’

And that dangerous practice can and probably will destroy our system of representative government.

    I know somewhere low I’d like to hit the Democrats.

    Seriously, how can any AMERICAN be party to to this ‘Party’? The Democratic Party stands four square with every enemy of this nation, every wrong and destructive economic and taxation scheme, stand united in every ditch of corruption and sin and are literally arm in arm with every possible form of self-immolation while shouting racist slogans, fixing every election, bribing threatening and paying off anyone who dares stand against their hideous denouement and in the end they are worse than whited sepulchers.

    They are a virus. An opportunistic, aggressive and stupid virus.

    A virus lives off its host. A smart virus never takes too much, leaving a moderately healthy host to feed on.

    A stupid virus is HIV. It kills its host.

    They bought the poll too. 41% for Dems????

    Kenyan-Americans 14%
    Unions 8%
    Lawyers 1%
    Professors 1/4 %
    Incarcerated 1%
    Addicts 1%
    Professional Criminals 1%
    Basement jack-offs 1%
    Peaceful Muslims 1%

    About 30% for hard-core Obamy supporters.

    Where are the rest?

    Oh wait, I forgot that this is one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.

    But I might have double-counted by included lawyers and professional criminals.

    Hadn’t seen the BJO census segment before. Must be a new Obama-voting contingent. Makes sense, though.
