The American people currently hold the Republican Party in very low esteem, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that was released Thursday night.
In the poll, only 26 percent of respondents said they have a positive opinion of the GOP, including just six percent who said they have a “very” positive impression of the party. What’s more, 49 percent said they view the party negatively — the highest negative rating given to Republicans in the NBC/WSJ survey since 2008.
The poll showed the Democratic Party, by contrast boasting, an above-water favorability rating: 44 percent of those polled said they have a positive opinion of Dems, compared with 38 percent who said they have a negative opinion.
