Despite earning gubernatorial victories in Virginia and New Jersey (which should’ve been expected), the Democrat Party is in very bad shape. A new CNN poll confirms Americans’ favorable view of Democrats is at its lowest point in 25 years.
Poll: Views of Democratic Party hit lowest mark in 25 years
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.
The rating includes low favorable ratings from some core Democratic groups, including nonwhites (48%) and people under 35 years old (33%). The numbers come amid recent feuds and divisions in the Democratic Party, as former interim chair Donna Brazile’s new book has unveiled new questions about infighting during the 2016 presidential campaign.
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.

It’s what happens when you insult your voting base for fleeing after you lectured them on pronouns instead of talking job creation. https://t.co/W2gGjj8V5L

Still, important parts of the tax plan show majority opposition: 52 percent oppose lowering the corporate tax rate, 56 percent oppose ending the inheritance tax, and 52 percent oppose eliminating state and local income tax deductions.
The poll of 1,021 adults was taken by telephone between November 2 and 5. It has a 3.6 point margin of error.
We’ll have to wait and see what this means for Republicans during the 2018 midterms.
