The GOP brand is dog crap

The GOP brand, Republican brand is full of sh!t right now, according to the new Gallup Poll.

Any republican should be worried about these numbers, can I type, ALL TIME LOW....

The decline and fall of the Republican Party in recent years has been so widespread that the party has lost support among nearly every major demographic subgroup of likely voters across the country, according to a new Gallup poll.

The party lost support among a broad swath of Americans, from conservative to liberal, low-income to high-income, married to unmarried, and elderly to young.

The only subgroup in which the party saw a slight increase in support from 2001 to 2009 was frequent churchgoers.

The biggest declines, of roughly 10 percent, occurred among the college-educated, 18 to 29-year-olds, and Midwestern voters.

The turning point was 2005, after Hurricane Katrina and Bush's nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court, when the party's support really started to free-fall, according to Gallup: "By the end of 2008, the party had its worst positioning against the Democrats in nearly two decades."

So far in 2009, aggregated Gallup Poll data show the divide on leaned party identification is 53% Democratic and 39% Republican -- a marked change from 2001, when the parties were evenly matched, according to an average of all of that year's Gallup Polls. That represents a loss of five points for the Republicans and a gain of eight points for the Democrats.

Those are bad news numbers for the Republican brand, thanks to Bush/Cheney, thanks to the idiots talkers as Limbaugh, thanks to politicians like Virginia Foxx, thanks to their own stupidity to kick the likes of a Colin Powell out of their party. If they can not open their eyes up to reality and how this country really is, then they will continue to be in the wilderness.
