Good news for the GOP – a new Gallup poll shows that favorability for the party is at forty-five percent and the highest it’s been in seven years and up nine points from last September.
According to Gallup, “the overall increase in the favorable image of the Republican Party is a result of a jump in the positive views of Republicans, including independents who lean toward the party. The percentage of Republicans and leaners with favorable views of their party grew from 67% last September to 85% now.”
Men and middle income households have also seen a jump in favorability for the GOP. (Probably due to those tax cuts)
Not surprisingly, though, Democrats’ views of the GOP haven’t changed.
Going into mid-terms, this new poll could be a good sign that Republican voters will turn out strong for their party.
