Despite the media’s daily drumbeat attack, the polls are showing that the Republican Party is regaining support among the voters. On the other hand, during the same polling period, the Democrats standing has collapsed.
The GOP’s reputation with voters took a huge hit in the wake of the fake “insurrection” of Jan. 6 last year. But lately, the Republicans have gained some traction, according to the Morning Consult/Politico poll.
According to The Blaze:
The survey discovered that among all voters — Republicans, Democrats, and independents — the GOP has regained the ground it lost following the Jan. 6 riots. In August 2020, the poll found that 69% of Republican voters and 23% of independent voters thought the Republican Party was headed in the right direction. After Jan. 6, those numbers fell to 51% of Republican voters and 15% of independent voters, respectively.
Now, 65% of Republican voters and 21% of independents believe the GOP is headed in the right direction.
The most surprising discovery from the poll is that 15% of Democratic voters believe the GOP is headed in the right direction, up from just 6% in August 2020. The poll suggests that the failures of the Democratic Party and President Joe Biden are improving the GOP’s favorability among moderate Democrats.
Meanwhile, over the same period, more voters believe the Democratic Party is headed in the wrong direction. The same poll from January 2021 found that 41% of registered voters believed the Democratic Party was headed in the right direction. Now, only 34% of registered voters agree, while 54% say the party is headed in the wrong direction.
The Democrats are also holding onto Jan 6 with all their might. Most claim that Jan. 6 is the most important day in recent history.
Meanwhile, everyone else is losing interest.
