We love to bash Republicans around here, but we're pretty much political Junkies and know a good deal more about what they're doing to our democracy and country than most of the general public.  But even if you're a member of the uninformed public that neglects your responsibility to be an informed citizen, you just can't avoid realizing just how awful these people really are.

Of course if you're uninformed enough, you fall into the false equivalence of they're all the same, and you buy into the meme of a pox on both your houses, so some of this discontent rubs off on the Democrats.

From a new ABC poll

I'll try to build a little table with some of the results.

Here's the results for Republicans

                               Favorable            unfavorable                        
All Adults                       35                       60

Registered Voters            38                       60

Democrats                     14                       85

Republicans                    79                       21

Independents                 31                       61

Male                             38                       59

Female                          33                       62

<$50K                          32                       63

$50K-$100K                   38                      56

>$100K                        39                       61

Liberal                          16                       80

Moderate                     32                       66

Conservative                 59                      38

Hard to find anyone who is satisfied with the dysfunctional party the Oligarchs have built.  But what about the Dems?
                               Favorable            unfavorable                        
All Adults                       49                       46

Registered Voters            51                       46

Democrats                     85                       14

Republicans                    15                       85

Independents                 41                       50

Male                             44                       52

Female                          54                       40

<$50K                          51                       44

$50K-$100K                   46                      48

>$100K                        53                       46

Liberal                          73                       24

Moderate                     52                        45

Conservative                28                        70

Now these aren't the types of numbers that Democrats can jump up and down over, but they're sure a lot better than the Republicans.  The Dems do better than the Republicans in almost every category.  I was pretty surprised to see those numbers broke down by income.  Even the rich are turning against the radicalized Republicans.

So this is a ray of hope for Nov.  The question becomes, how many of these people will show up at the polls, and how many will once again vote against their own interests.
