The Pew Research Center released a new poll showing that the Republican Party’s favorability rating among Americans has been on a sharp decline, reported Addicting Info.
The GOP had a 41 percent favorability rating among Americans at the end of 2014. Currently, that rating has plummeted to 32 percent.
This decline is attributed to many thing: the GOP’s treatment of poor people, their anti-gay agenda, suppression of minority voters, and one-percenter favoritism. Currently, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush has support from 27 percent of Hispanic voters. The GOP nominee needs almost double that amount to win the White House.
The GOP is severely unpopular. But, they only did it to themselves. By supporting unpopular policies that negatively affect the country, the Republicans have found themselves on the decline.
