  •  7 per cent still seems low (5+ / 0-)

    I appreciate that New England Republicans (such as they are) are moderates, and have nothing in common with the Jeff Sessions' of the world.

    That said, between Republicans and independents, and considering the state of the economy, the wars, and this health care thing, I'm surprised that his unfavorable number is that low.

    •  Like I said, they're realists (1+ / 0-)

      They realize that he inherited a shit sandwich and has done the best he could do with it.  They may not like his policies but acknowledge he's working hard to try and solve the problems.  It really boils down to the fact that there are not too many ideologues up here, Glen Beck & Ann Coulter aside

      pushes their moderate side away, thus they have all gone Independent, and answering the poll, yea I believe it they are disillusioned that the party only speaks from one point of view.

    •  Bogus (0+ / 0-)

      I live in Boston, and I can tell you that 7 percent number is bogus.  It's higher for sure.
