The State of The GOP

A revealing USA Today/Gallup poll came out this morning.

One of the findings? "One-third of Republicans now say they have an unfavorable opinion of their party."  That doesn't bode well (by contrast, only 4% of Democrats have an unfavorable opinio of the Democratic Party".

But more importantly, Republicans acknowledge their huge power vacuum. A 52% majority of those surveyed couldn't come up with a name when asked to specify "the main person" who speaks for Republicans today.

And who was the top response?  Rush Limbaugh.  But he had only 13%.

Those figures bear little comment.  The GOP is divided and rudderless.  Which probably accounts for why som many Republicans have a negative opinion about the party itself.
