The Gallup poll has finally caught up with the results of last week’s historic midterms that saw national Republicans make gains unseen since the 1930’s. Approval for Congressional Democrats has dived to a record low (for this poll) of 36%, and for the first time in 3 years, the public has a higher opinion of congressional Republicans than their Democrat counterparts.
Republicans currently sit at a just-okay 42% approval.
Where Democrats lost support was among their own and Independents. Last month 88% of Democrats supported their own party; that number is now down to 81%. Among Independent voters support for Democrats plummeted from an already low of 35% to just 25%.
