Favorable views of the Democratic Party have dropped to their lowest mark in more than a quarter century of polling, according to new numbers from a CNN poll conducted by SSRS.
Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992.
But the Republican Party isn't doing any better, with just 30% of Americans holding a favorable view. That's essentially the same as September, when the rating hit its lowest point in polling back to 1992, but down from 42% in March. A broad 6 in 10, 61%, have an unfavorable opinion.

Go back (if you dare) and look at the threads during the campaign as the futile R v D debates raged. And not just the past election. The previous ones as well. There were many of us that begged people to turn away from both parties and support 3rd parties. The loudest voices started the hackneyed 'wasted vote' argument. The majority just refuse to get it. We're being had. We've been 'being had' for decades --- it is intentionally designed to work that way. It's the only way They can retain control. The ONLY way we break out of this is to abandon BOTH parties suddenly and en masse. Or we can all just keep bending over and lying to ourselves that THIS time, THIS person is going to change things.
Of course. And if you'll drop your knickers tonight we can look at engagement rings next week.

about time people are waking up the truth that neither party works for the people.
you have to be blissfully ignant to be proud of the DNC or the GOP.
now if they would only take the big step and joing forces to demand
1. lobbying reform
2. term limits in congress.
3. real transparency
4. close revolving doors between private and public sector
Both sides suck.
Until you introduce term limits, both sides will continue to suck.
