How The Public Views The Major Political Parties
This chart was made from results of a new Gallup Poll -- done between May 18th and 22nd of a random national sample of 1,530 U.S. adults, with a 3 point margin of error.
It shows the favorable view of both the Democratic and Republican parties with the public. The Democratic Party has an 8 point higher favorable rating than the Republican Party with the general public -- and a 10 point higher favorable rating among Independents.
But the interesting thing to me was how the members of each party viewed their own party. Republicans had a 13 point lower favorable rating of their party (76%) than Democrats did of their party (89%).
