CNN Poll: Republicans Too Extreme

More proof of just how damaged the GOP Brand is:

Fifty-three percent of those surveyed say they view the policies of the GOP as too extreme, up 17 points from two years ago. Only 37% say they view the polices of the Democratic Party as too extreme. …

According to the survey, 53% say the GOP should compromise more, with 41% saying the Democratic Party should give up more of the proposals it supports to develop bipartisan solutions.

“That’s due in part to the fact that the Republican brand is not doing all that well,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

What’s especially troubling is that we’re still a right-of-center country, and I would bet that any poll of individual policies would show Republicans much more in line with mainstream American thinking.

The GOP needs to get its act together.
