New Poll Shows Majority Of Americans Think The GOP Is ‘Out Of Touch’ And ‘Extreme’

It looks like the rest of the country has caught up with us here at Addicting Info. According to a new Pew poll (http://www.people-press.org/2013/02/26/gop-seen-as-principled-but-out-of-touch-and-too-extreme/) released on Tuesday, most of America has figured out that the Republican party has been taken over by the crazies. Sixty-two percent of adults (I guess they didn’t talk to any Congressional Republicans) say that the GOP is out of touch and 52% said they were too extreme. Compare that to 46% and 39% who think that, respectively, about the Democratic party.


In every category the pollsters asked about – out of touch, extreme, looking out for the country’s future, favorability and disapproval – the Republicans scored dismally. The only place they did better than Democrats was in the strength of their principles. That’s fair, I guess. When an entire political party is willing to let the country go to hell in a handbasket just to stick to their guns (literal and figurative), I guess they have strong convictions. Because they certainly have no honor.


The Pew poll spoke to 1,054 adults – 366 Republicans and 470 Democrats – by phone between Feb 15 and 18. Other polls show similar outcomes: HuffPo‘s pollster has the Republicans at an average 31% favorability (http://elections.huffingtonpost.com/pollster/republican-party-favorable-rating). They also show that half of Republicans disapprove (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/08/poll-republicans-congress_n_2649067.html) of their Congressional representatives and that a majority of all Americans say that the GOP has moved (http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/12/20/republican-poll_n_2337757.html)out of the mainstream.
When you look back at the record of the Republican party, even just the recent record, you can clearly see why their numbers are so bleak. Let’s examine why the GOP is viewed by so many Americans as out of touch and extreme. Here are just a handful of examples:


Richard Mourdock: Mr. “rape babies are a gift from god” cost the GOP a Senate seat in the 2012 election with his insensitive remarks. You’d think that would put him out to pasture as far as electability goes. But you’d be wrong (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/18/richard-rape-is-a-gift-from-god-mourdock-hints-at-return-to-politics-videos/).

Marco Rubio: Ah, the supposed savior of the GOP. They put him in the spotlight to deliver their response to the State of the Union address a few weeks ago, hoping he would improve their image in the sight of the country. Not. Though they were delivered by a newer face they were the same old failed ideas (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/17/marco-romney-or-mitt-rubio-how-the-gop-shows-that-they-still-do-not-understand-america/).


Rand Paul: Where to start with this guy? When he’s not insulting Cabinet members, he’s fomenting conspiracy theories. He has no idea what’s in bills he votes on. He’s the guy the Tea Party chose to give their response to the SOTU address. His logic does not resemble our earth logic (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/17/rand-paul-discusses-presidential-run-his-immigration-reform-ideas-drones-and-more-video/).


The message (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/01/25/republicans-getting-it-wrong-its-the-message-not-the-messaging/): The last election should have been an eye-opener for the GOP but apparently they still have blinders on. They think that it’s the *way* they say it. Um, no. From their attitude about women (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/08/women-could-be-the-demise-of-nra-republicans-in-2014/) to their policies on immigration (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/07/teapublican-says-no-citizenship-for-illegals-but-doesnt-reveal-the-three-real-reasons-why/)to their stubborn clinging to the Defense of Marriage Act (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/01/24/house-gops-case-for-marriage-inequality-revealed-and-its-laughably-bad/), the Republicans hold views that are so far out of step with the nation that it would be laughable if it weren’t so damaging to so many Americans. Frank Luntz can’t save you, guys. Not this time.


The Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC): As if to prove how backwards they are, this yearly meeting of people who live in the past has invited all of the losers they know. From Sarah Palin to Karl Rove to Paul Ryan, the CPAC folks have invited the flaming stars bags of poop (in the sense of that tired and outdated doorstep prank) that have done so much to embolden ruin the conservative brand. But no invite (http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/25/gop-snubs-chris-christie-hes-not-invited-to-cpac-video/) for Chris Christie. He was a bad boy and does not salute the GOP flag (the one with a dunce cap on it) so he was snubbed this year.


And then there is their continual use of the term “the American people,” as if they have an actual idea (or even care) what the people really want, say or feel. We can pretty much assume that any time we hear a Republican say that, he is relating what his corporate masters want, say or feel. Because if they really did know what we want – 92% want background checks for gun buyers, for example – they would not be trying to destroy the country in pursuit of their ideological and monetary happiness at the cost of ours. Yes, the GOP is out of touch. They are extreme. They are unpopular and, all the gods willing, they are soon to be extinct.

"Addicting Info started as a resource to discredit all the lies and propaganda that the right-wing spreads." That quote is right off the source of this article so take its message with a ton of salt. Their agenda as stated is to discredit all the lies and propaganda that the right-wing spreads ... as unstated is to spread their own lies and propaganda! A page right out of Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals.

Right, and Pew Research Polls are all part of the liberal conspiracy. Get a grip, and try getting a new playbook... the tired old "liberal" controlled media, "Alinsky this and Alinsky that" pantsload of BS is boring and tiresome. Anyway you slice it the GOP is in deep, deep, doo doo. :blah::blah::blah:

But hey keep up the good spoon fed tea bagger conservative stuff, it's working like a charm for us liberals! :glee::glee::glee:

I never indicated that I felt Pew Research is part of a liberal conspiracy. I was only pointing out that the article that was embellishing a Pew poll, as their stated agenda, is very anti conservative so when you read the hyperbole it's what you would expect ... conservative bashing. Don't start frothing at the mouth. You should get a grip!

So, let me get this straight. If I point out the bias of the link you posted then I'm a spoon fed tea bagger? Talk about getting a grip! Is everyone who isn't in lock step with the uber liberal Addicting Info web site a "spoon fed tea bagger conservative"??? Is every conservative a member of the Tea Party? Jeez Louise!

LBSA! Life before Saul Alinsky. 99.9% of all liberals never had heard of Alinsky before the RWRs dug him up.:blah:

That galls me everytime I hear that from the pigs! Every public poll says Americans are counter-republican view. It is ludicrous when they keep touting like they do.

I agree, absolutely. I'm far to the left of liberals, and my fringe brush with Alinsky was that his book (then just re-released) made it onto a list of a syllabus of books we could chose among as elective reading.

I thought, "Reveille for Radicals????!?!!! Who wants to read that crap?" And never did.

Low air quality inside the Bubbabubble. It distorts their thinking. They still haven't realized they lost the election. They believe the polling data they pay for, and Repuglicans are Tea Baggers, and fascist, because that is who they take their orders from, pigs like Adelson, Koch Brothers, and Neocon War Mongering no bidders, who thrive on the blood of our soldiers.

The next election is just as important as the last one. The future of our country depends on removing every single Repiglican from office.

Lol ... it certainly sounds like you are the one intoxicated by some ideological Kool-Aid. Both the left and the right have nut case fringe elements and where do you come to the conclusion that I am defending or espousing what you so eloquently call "the ultra right wing GOP teabaggers?"

If you would care to have a reasoned debate concerning the differences between our political leanings, fine.

I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to engage in any form of debate (reasoned or otherwise) with right wingers, as it's a futile undeavor. Perhaps Mark Twain said it best in this quote...

How pithy. I suggest you read the lower left hand corner ... "Free your mind and think." You demonstrate the typical ideologue mantra of not wishing to hear or discuss any kind of opposing viewpoint. Just keep beating the drum with like minded people, never consider an alternative thought and keep repeating the drivel and go on your merry way. Sad.
