Gallup Poll: GOP Favorability Sinks to Historic Low

A political bus plunge
Poll • Views: 35,670

Wow, the latest Gallup poll is stunning — the approval rating of the Republican Party has now dropped by 10 points since the last poll, to a historic low for either party: Republican Party Favorability Sinks to Record Low.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — With the Republican-controlled House of Representatives engaged in a tense, government-shuttering budgetary standoff against a Democratic president and Senate, the Republican Party is now viewed favorably by 28% of Americans, down from 38% in September. This is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992.

Greg Sargent notes the last time the GOP’s approval rating took such a precipitous dive: GOP’s Favorability Sinks Into Clinton Impeachment Territory.

You’ll note that the only other time the GOP’s favorability ratings sank almost this low was in the beginning of 1999. I asked Gallup for a more fine grained breakdown of the data.

It turns out the GOP’s favorability rating hit 31 percent on December 19th and 20th of 1998. Those are the same two days the House GOP debated on and voted to impeach Bill Clinton. The very same two days.

And so the GOP’s favorability rating is now in the same territory as it was on those two days — or perhaps even lower.

It’s only going to get lower if they let the country default but I’m sure Uncle Rush will be on hand to tell them that the American people will appreciate the “principled conservative” stand they took. Hopefully this means they lose their majority in the House and what Boehner worries so much about happens due to the will of the voters not a bunch of Tea Party fools.

I wonder what the real GOP approval floor is, the level below which they cannot sink, even if caught live on video celebrating a Black Mass to Mammon on the House floor.

We’ll probably find out. My guess is the usual 25% level of absolute RW political dead-enders.

These fuckers really are going to push forward with economic armageddon, because as much as they deny it, the love the idea of the nanny state. They likewise think that the job of a nanny is to do what is “best” for those who the government cares for. But, in their minds, the nanny taking away the toys and saying “Get a job, you lazy little shit” is the best way to motivate people. And if you’re going to be in a financial hell because the government no longer provides SS, Medicare, or any other social safety net programs, then tough shit because you should have prepared for that eventuality.

After all, they’ll declare, a little suffering is good for the soul.

In Louie’s mind, if the SS checks stop coming, it’s because Obama personally ordered them to be stopped just to be petulant. Why? Because everybody knows we bring in enough daily revenue to cover all our bills and still have money left over.

The tide is turning on women’s reproductive rights and as usual, CA is in the lead on this one.

Bills increasing abortion access signed by Gov. Jerry Brown

mercurynews.com

“California on Wednesday became the only state in the nation this year to increase access to abortions, as Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill into law to let more medical professionals perform certain, common procedures.

“AB154 by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, would let nurse practitioners, certified nurse-midwives and physician assistants with special training perform the most common kind of first-trimester abortion. The Assembly passed the bill on a 50-25 vote in May and the state Senate passed it on a 50-25 vote in August, with most Democrats and no Republicans voting for it.

“California is moving in a different direction than the rest of the country. So far this year we have seen 68 abortion restrictions become law, and California is the only state to make real progress to protect abortion rights,” said Elizabeth Nash, state issues manager for the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive-rights research group.”

The more and more I listen to the whispering behind the curtains, the more convinced I get that Boehner’s scared shitless. Polls started against the GOP and have only gone lower, the chorus demanding action is getting louder by the day, and Obama’s not budging. He seems to think there’s a sliver of daylight in the admission that the White House would accept a short-term debt ceiling increase, but the backbenchers are already screaming that it doesn’t include anything about the ACA and that’s unacceptable in their view. So, in short, Nancy’s got him by the balls and she knows it.

If he puts the CR and debt ceiling to a “clean” vote, he’ll get the Tea Party on his ass, but at least he gives the party a fighting chance to retain the House next year.

It’s a stupid lie, and it also overlook something: Foreign doctors have to pass the boards here in order to practice. This is actually harder for foreign doctors, since they’ve been educated slightly differently. So a foreign doctor licensed in the US is generally a pretty badass doctor.

This cop also was undercover during the Occupy Wall St movement.

Charges upgraded against undercover cop in SUV assault

investigations.nbcnews.com

“On Tuesday, Det. Braszczok was seen on a newly obtained video banging on the rear window of the SUV. Lien, who was beaten by numerous motorcyclists in the Sept. 29 incident, was then seen being pulled out of the car as the undercover officer rode off, the sources said.

(snip)

“The video is not the one that has been widely distributed on YouTube, but has been reviewed by investigators, the sources said. It was recorded by a bystander using his iPad. It’s not clear when the video surfaced but investigators learned of it late Monday.

“The detective had originally been defended by officials as a deep undercover officer who failed to act in defense of the motorist because that might have unmasked him. But when the new videotape surfaced those officials felt duped, sources said. “

The tide is turning on women’s reproductive rights and as usual, CA is in the lead on this one.

Bills increasing abortion access signed by Gov. Jerry Brown

mercurynews.com

“California on Wednesday became the only state in the nation this year to increase access to abortions, as Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill into law to let more medical professionals perform certain, common procedures.

“AB154 by Assemblywoman Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, would let nurse practitioners, certified nurse-midwives and physician assistants with special training perform the most common kind of first-trimester abortion. The Assembly passed the bill on a 50-25 vote in May and the state Senate passed it on a 50-25 vote in August, with most Democrats and no Republicans voting for it.

“California is moving in a different direction than the rest of the country. So far this year we have seen 68 abortion restrictions become law, and California is the only state to make real progress to protect abortion rights,” said Elizabeth Nash, state issues manager for the Guttmacher Institute, a reproductive-rights research group.”

The power of words in action. The federal agencies should have had two categories: “to be furloughed” and “to work without pay” instead of the corresponding terms ‘non-essential’ and ‘essential’.

‘Non-essential’ is way too easy for the GOP wrecking crew to spin.

How would a doctor “accept Obamacare?” Or that is, the ACA. Doctors won’t be seeing Obamacare other than someone who has health insurance or is covered by a Medicaid expansion program. The bottom line will remain, the bottom line. Doctors aren’t shying away from current Medicaid or Medicare payments. The only doctors that will shy away will likely be some superstar doctor that your average wingnut WILL-NOT-BE-ABLE-TO-AFFORD, period.

I got a deal for the GOP and the Tea Party, one that will answer their demand for the ACA’s repeal and make everybody happy. The deal? Medicare for All. Just expand it to everybody and allow even the youngest child to get care.

See, it makes them happy because they got rid of the ACA, and it ensures that millions of people without insurance get affordable health care. Win-win, I say.

re: #165 Targetpractice

Without the TPers, the House GOP lacks the votes to put anybody in the Speaker’s seat. Unless they could convince the TP caucus to go along with their choice, it would actually end up being House Democrats who picked the Speaker.

Wouldn’t that be an interesting one. Wait another week or two, when things start getting really desperate over in GOPland, and Pelosi gently mentions that she has enough votes for a saner Republican… maybe one in a Left leaning district that needs some help surviving 2014… one that could brag about compromise for years afterwards… and all it would take is them coming out as bipartisan and throwing Orange John under the bus — for good.

A pipe dream, but hey, it would be interesting.

Pretty good comment on an article I’m reading.

Oct 2008: “You’ll never get elected and pass healthcare.”
Nov 2008: “We’ll never let you pass healthcare.”
Jan 2009: “We are going to shout you down every time you try to pass healthcare.”
July 2009: “We will fight to the death every attempt you make to pass healthcare.”
Dec 2009: “We will destroy you if you even consider passing healthcare.”
March 2010: “We can’t believe you just passed healthcare.”
April 2010: “We are going to overturn healthcare.”
Sept 2010: “We are going to repeal healthcare.”
Jan 2011: “We are going to destroy healthcare.”
Feb 2012: “We are going to elect a candidate who will immediately revoke healthcare.”
June 2012: “We will go to the Supreme Court, and they will overturn healthcare.”
Aug 2012: “The American people will never re-elect you, because they don’t want healthcare.”
Oct 2012: “We can’t wait to win the election and explode healthcare.”
Nov 2012: “We can’t believe you just got re-elected and that we can’t repeal healthcare.”
Feb 2013: “We’re still going to vote to obliterate healthcare.”
June 2013: “We can’t believe the Supreme Court just upheld healthcare.”
July 2013: “We’re going to vote like 35 more times to erase healthcare.”
Sept 2013: “We are going to leverage a government shutdown into defunding, destroying, obliterating, overturning, repealing, dismantling, erasing and ripping apart healthcare.”
Oct 2013: “WHY AREN’T YOU NEGOTIATING???”

re: #149 Dr Lizardo

Buckley was far from perfect, but I will give credit where credit is due. He had little patience from the proto-wingnuts of his era, and he did make a solid effort to keep them at bay.

Even Barry Goldwater detested the Religious Right; I remember a 60 Minutes interview with him, where he remarked he was flying on a private plane and someone the PA tuned to a televangelist, and he yelled out, “Someone turn that g***amned skypilot off!” He was concerned about the influence the RR and the Fundamentalist SoCons would have. He was right; Michelle Bachmann is pretty much his fears come to life.

There is a quote by Goldwater: something like: zealotry in the defense of liberty is no vice.

Anyway, I’ve always remember the sentiment in relation to his name.

Nah, a crueler way to force Boehner’s hand would be to not so subtly point out that if the House GOP does depose him, she probably has the votes in the House Dem caucus to get back the gavel. After all, under House rules, the Speaker does not have to be a member of the majority party. They technically don’t even have to be a member of the House. So if the TPers do revolt against Boehner, then it’s likely that there’s not 217 Republicans who could agree on the same candidate for the Speakership.

That’s very true; I still think that what the GOP has devolved into, and in particular the Tea Party crowd, would’ve horrified both Buckley and Goldwater.

DANVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) — Danville Police say there’s been an arrest made in connection to a triple homicide investigation. Officials say a man, Kenneth Keith, has been arrested, according to The Advocate Messenger.

“They say Keith is a pastor from Main Street Baptist Church, in Burnside, Ky., and is lodged in the Pulaski Co. Jail. Keith is also a gold buyer with a business in Somerset.”

I was interested in going, then I saw on Ticketmaster that there are about $10 in FEES on top of the face cost of the tickets. For the cheapest tickets, that literally DOUBLES the price as they start at $9.99.

It’s about enough to make me not want to go and I’m a huge Cash fan and from what I’ve seen, the show has drawn great reviews. I’m going to contact the Casino directly and see if the rates are any cheaper but I’m not holding my breath.

OT: There’s a Johnny Cash tribute show coming to one of the local Casinos here in about two weeks.

I was interested in going, then I saw on Ticketmaster that there are about $10 in FEES on top of the face cost of the tickets. For the cheapest tickets, that literally DOUBLES the price as they start at $9.99.

It’s about enough to make me not want to go and I’m a huge Cash fan and from what I’ve seen, the show has drawn great reviews. I’m going to contact the Casino directly and see if the rates are any cheaper but I’m not holding my breath.

UPDATE: I just called the Casino I can buy direct from them without any of TicketBastard’s fees, just the ticket cost plus tax.

“As expected, many atheists showed their real anger against God by some very nasty, vile comments (so they were deleted and banned). Some secularists (after some investigation) were pretending to be Christians and complaining about the campaign,” Ham wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday, following the launch of the billboards on Monday.

There is often a box office too, and it might be possible to buy tickets directly from them (I do that when the alternative is Ticketmaster). But it might mean turning up at the casino to buy them.

The $100 difference between the XBox One and the PS4? The Kinect. Strip that from the XBox and the price is about the same. Considering that Microsoft’s already been shamed into making it superfluous anyway, I imagine by next year’s E3, we’ll be presented the “bargain” XBox that allows you to buy a Kinect as an “option.”

317 lawhawk  Wed, Oct 9, 2013 5:02:18pm

OFFS:

GOPers actually think that this poll somehow favors Ted Cruz and the GOP?

That is notable because, during last week’s conservative luncheon, Cruz was harshly criticized for pushing Republicans into a politically risky government shutdown without a strategy to win the standoff, particularly because polls have consistently shown that voters oppose the defund-or-shut down strategy favored by the senator, despite the fact that they disapprove of Obamacare.

A copy of Cruz’ poll was obtained by the Washington Examiner. The national survey of 815 likely voters was conducted last week immediately after the government shut down. It had a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points. Among its findings:

- Obama’s job approval rating was 45 percent; his disapproval was 52 percent.

- 67 percent said Obamacare was the “major reason” for the government shutdown.

- By a margin of 46 percent to 39 percent, voters blamed Republicans for the shutdown over “Obama and Democrats.” Another 19 percent blamed both sides equally.

- By a margin of 42 percent to 36 percent, independent voters blamed Republicans for the shutdown over Obama and the Democrats.

- In November 1995, 51 percent of voters blamed Republicans for the shutdown; only 28 percent blamed then-President Clinton

They’re underwater in every step of the way and the GOP fares poorly compared to Obama. How exactly are they winning, unless they’re going full metal unskewed polling?

Oh wait.They are. Specifically, Ted Cruz thinks this shows that the GOP is better off than when the GOP shut down the government in 1995

Republicans who attended the weekly lunch hosted by Senate conservatives confirmed that Cruz presented a poll that the Texan paid for. Cruz’ pollster, Chris Perkins, was there for a portion of the discussion to help walk members through the poll and discuss the party’s messaging strategy. Perkins is a partner with Wilson Perkins Allen, a GOP polling firm with dozens of Republican clients.

The survey’s findings mirrored other national polls: More voters blame the Republicans for the government shutdown than blame President Obama or the Democrats. But Cruz argued, based on the poll, that Republicans are in a much better position than they were during the 1995 shutdown because this impasse is defined by a disagreement over funding for the Affordable Care Act as opposed to a general disagreement over government spending.

You know, in this interview and other stories I’ve read and heard these courageous women from partiarchial societies had father’s who believed in their daughters. They supported their daughters in every way knowing they could lose everything —and some have—even their own lives. Without that support the girls/women could not have gotten court cases, relocation or whatever they needed.

I am lucky enough to know that my father would have done ANYTHING for me.
