This is what GOP brand poisoning looks like
In Ohio and elsewhere, Tuesday's election results offered troubling signs for Tea Party conservatism
Topics:Opening Shot
The most recent national survey from the Quinnipiac Polling Institute suggests a serious image problem for the Republican Party, with just 28 percent of voters saying they have a favorable view of the GOP and 57 percent saying they have an unfavorable one. Tuesday night offered a demonstration of why this is, with voters in several states siding against some of the most prominent faces and ideas of the Tea Party-era Republican Party.

The marquee contest was in Ohio, where voters repealed SB 5, the law that curbs state public employee bargaining rights and that was championed earlier this year by Gov. John Kasich and his fellow state Republicans. The outcome wasnít a surprise ó polls had shown it coming. But the size of the verdict, a 63-37 percent margin in the early returns, was still striking, punctuating a broader shift in public opinion thatís taken place in Ohio in 2011.

The year started with a new Republican governor taking office and a new Republican majority in the Legislature, both results of the GOPís 2010 midterm landslide. But once in power, the Republicans overreached, with SB 5 inciting a fierce and sustained backlash and angering many of the swing voters who were crucial to the GOPís í10 success. Kasichís poll numbers crashed early in the year and have yet to recover much. A week before the election, his approval rating stood at 36 percent.

There were other significant results on Tuesday too.

But after a year of headlines about shutdown and default brinkmanship in Washington and laws like SB-5 at the state level, the GOPís overall favorable rating has dropped by 12 points. Democrats now have a clear advantage in this area; the same Quinnipiac poll that gave Republicans a 28/57 percent favorable/unfavorable score gave Democrats a 36/39 mark. Which suggests at least the possibility that voters who might otherwise be ready to cast out Barack Obama and his fellow Democrats will think twice before doing so in next yearís election.

Hmmmm... just as I predicted....

The divisive Tea Party hatred of RW Racist, Misogynistic, Homophobic, policies have led to disaster for for their authoritarian, fascist brand.

They have made it obvious that their only concern is to push more money up to the wealthy pigs at the top, at the expense of the rest.

Most Americans want taxes raised for wealthy millionaires and billionaires, and an end to the Fascist Shock Doctrine, of the radical right which Repiglicnas have prosecuted against this country.

This election gives me great hope for the next one, particularly since Repiglicans have a line oup of clowns who represent more of the same disastrous policies which led us into this ditch.

It uzually kums to this.
When someone(s) iz doing the wrong thing, it iz uzually koz ...

1...... They iz ignorant.
They iz ignorant koz they dont know the truth. Uzually they allso think that they know the truth, but in fakt their truth iz wrong.

2...... They iz selfish.
They are happy to knowingly (or partially knowingly) say and do the wrong thing, koz it makes them happy in some way, uzually monetaryly.

3...... They iz ignorant and selfish.
Here what they do makes it worse for them in the short run and/or in the long run.

In the usofa ignorance iz aktually selfishness, ie peeple are too lazy to look for the truth. In the usofa it iz 100% selfishness. With all due respekt to shellfish and good fish everywhere.

BRAVO! Mac, you do come up with some genius findings. You've got this one wrapped!

Every poll show a vast majority of Americans want to raise taxes on the top wealthies among us, and 67 % of the top wealthiest, millionaires and billionaires, want their taxes raised!

They obviously think the economic result would be good for the economy.

I suppose they are smart enough to realize that consumers drive the economy, which is the very thing that Repiglicans do not want to improve.

Many in our country are starting to understand this.
