A new Gallup poll has good news for Republicans and bad news for Democrats. The GOP is currently enjoying high approval ratings and the Democrats have lost their middle class advantage.
Poll: Democrats Lose Advantage with Middle Class Americans, Gender Gap Collapses
The Democratic Party’s advantage among American women suffered a six percent swing over the past year, according to a Gallup poll released Monday.
Women are still more likely to view the Democrats favorably than they are Republicans, but the difference has contracted. A year ago, 35 percent of women said they viewed Republicans favorably. Democrats had a 14 point advantage, with 49 percent viewing the party favorably.
In the latest poll, the GOP favorability rating rose to 40 percent. The Democrat favorability fell by one point. That leaves Democrats with just an 8 point advantage.
Democrats have completely lost their advantage with American men. A year ago, 40 percent of men viewed the Democrats favorably, while just 37 percent viewed the GOP favorably.
Now Republicans are in favor with 50 percent of men. Favorability toward Democrats climbed one point to 41 percent, giving the Republicans a 9 point advantage.
Even with this good news, Republicans and voters can leave nothing to chance. The left is highly motivated. Conservative voters absolutely must show up to vote in the midterms.
