Politico: Dem Party Ratings Plummet

I'll let this morning's Politico article speak for itself:

The percentage of Americans who hold a favorable view of the Democratic Party has slipped below 50 percent for the first time since President Barack Obama took office, according to a new Pew Research Center poll released Wednesday.

Only 49 percent of Americans now hold a favorable view of the Democratic Party, down from 62 percent in the same poll shortly after Obama assumed office. Democratic favorable ratings hovered around 60 percent as recently as April, when 59 percent of those polled held a favorable view.

So the Democrats are down to 49% favorable, and our party is at 40%: a 9% advantage to the Democrats, down from the 22% advantage they enjoyed at the beginning of the year. I would be more concerned about their 9% advantage, but a quick look over at the Rasmussen numbers out today shows that Republicans are leading in the generic Congressional ballot test by 5%.
