CNN - Only 37% of Americans have a favorable opinion of Democrats, down from 44% in March of this year. A majority, 54%, have an unfavorable view, matching their highest mark in polls from CNN and SSRS, CNN/ORC and CNN/USA Today/Gallup stretching back to 1992. The rating includes low favorable ratings from some core Democratic groups, including nonwhites (48%) and people under 35 years old (33%). The numbers come amid recent feuds and divisions in the Democratic Party, as former interim chair Donna Brazile’s new book has unveiled new questions about infighting during the 2016 presidential campaign. But the Republican Party isn’t doing any better, with just 30% of Americans holding a favorable view. That’s essentially the same as September, when the rating hit its lowest point in polling back to 1992, but down from 42% in March. A broad 6 in 10, 61%, have an unfavorable opinion.Trust in the DNC further eroded after months of rabidly accusing the Trump campaign of having colluded with Russia, evidence is Democrats and the Clinton campaign were themselves colluding with Russia.

CNN Polls Its Own Viewers - Probably Wished They Hadn't
Despite their hoop-la over the non-shocking gubernatorial victories in New Jersey and Virginia last night, the Democrat Party is in bad shape. CNN decided to take a poll on the party’s favorability, and wound up with results they certainly weren’t expecting. No doubt because of their embracing of leftist bigotry and identity politics, favorable views of the Party have dropped to their lowest mark in more than 25 years of polling, according to new numbers from a CNN poll conducted by SSRS.
