Despite months of non-stop attacks and outright opposition from the mainstream media, President Trump continues to improve the overall rating of the Republican Party; with new data showing GOP favorability at its highest point in seven years.
According to Gallup, favorability ratings for the Republican Party reached 45% in recent weeks compared to the Democrats 44%; posting levels not seen since January 2011.
The figures represent a 9-point increase from September.
“The parity in Republicans’ and Democrats’ favorable ratings marks a change from what has generally been the case since Barack Obama’s election as president in November 2008. Republicans have usually been rated less positively than Democrats over this time, with the Republican Party’s favorability rating for the last decade averaging 39%, compared with the Democratic Party’s 44%,” writes the report.
“The overall increase in the favorable image of the Republican Party is a result of a jump in the positive views of Republicans, including independents who lean toward the party,” adds the survey.
