Gallup Poll Shows Large Increase in Republican Approval Rating
Thank the news gods we've finally got a story that doesn't involve Brett Kavanaugh and
leftist fairy tales allegations of rapery. Gallup did a new poll to gauge Americans' approval of the two parties. The results are good news for anyone who isn't a turd-sniffing lefty dunce.
Behold the statistical goodness:
Forty-five percent of Americans now have a favorable view of the Republican Party, a nine-point gain from last September's 36%. It is the party's most positive image since it registered 47% in January 2011, shortly after taking control of the House in the 2010 midterm elections. Forty-four percent give the Democratic Party a favorable rating.
The parity in Republicans' and Democrats' favorable ratings marks a change from what has generally been the case since Barack Obama's election as president in November 2008. Republicans have usually been rated less positively than Democrats over this time.
Only one other time in the last decade has the Republican Party had a significantly higher score than the Democratic Party. That one exception came in November 2014, immediately after elections that saw Republicans capture control of the Senate and expand their majority in the House.
I'm not even gonna pretend to be unimpressed about this Gallup report.
I can't really say any of this is surprising. Especially seeing as Democrats are about as sane as a schizo who thinks he's Napoleon. Or a Bruce Springsteen fan. If the left isn't peddling outright lies, they're breaking out the Reynolds' Wrap headwear and pushing whacked-out conspiracy theories. Yet, they're still certain there's a blue wave on the way.
This is good news, but the important thing is to not start celebrating too early. Obviously the only poll that matters is the one on Election Day. Still, if you were worrying about the prospect of seeing Cryptkeeper Pelosi as Speaker of the House again, these numbers ought to leave you more optimistic.
Let's just hope they're for real:
