Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Tuesday, November 07, 2017

Following damning accusations made by Donna Brazile, the Democratic Party's favorability rating plunged Tuesday to a low not seen in 25 years -- and the number was eerily comparable to President Donald Trump's dreadful job rating.

The party received a 37 percent favorable rating, a drop of 7 points from March, while 54 percent had an unfavorable view of the Democrats, according to an SSRS poll conducted for CNN. Such figures have not been seen since 1992. The Republican Party, meanwhile, maintained a 30 percent favorable rating, equal to its rating in September -- and also mirroring that of 25 years ago.

The Democrats' numbers were mostly just a shade off Trump's approval rating in several national polls. Just at the start of his first trip to Asia, the president registered a 37 percent job approval rating, compared with a 57 percent disapproval rating, in Gallup's latest running poll, between Friday and Sunday.

CNN had Trump's approval at 38 percent, as did ABC News and The Washington Post's joint effort, while Reuters and Ipsos registered a 36 percent approval rating during the final days of October.

Trump's numbers have reached an all-time low since approval ratings were first taken and examined, in the 1940s. And he's dealt with poor or dwindling numbers throughout his first year in office, even as he's maintained very strong support from Republicans.

Republicans and most Democrats are enemies of the people, which led to our insane clown President.

Greg Price chose the wrong day to publish his b.s. Now, it is he who looks like a loser not the Democrats.
