A new Washington Post-ABC News poll finds 48% of Americans rate the Democratic Party favorably, marking the party’s first sub-50% read in polling since 1984. At the same time, public views of the Republican Party continue to be even more negative with just 40% viewing the party favorably.
Independent voters are broadly critical of the two sides: 55%
have unfavorable views of the Democrats and Republicans alike.
Interestingly, while 74% of independent voters favor the idea of an independent candidate for president, majorities of both Republicans (57%) and Democrats (53%) also back the concept, at least in principle.Save to Favorites
