Poll: Democratic Party approval rating hits all-time low

After last week's midterm elections, it's not surprising that the Democratic Party's approval rating is the lowest it has ever been.

Gallup reports that just 36 percent of Americans say they have a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party. The Republican Party's approval rating is at 42 percent, marking the "first time since September 2011 that the Republican Party has had a higher favorability rating than the Democratic Party." The Democrats' favorability rating dropped six percent after the elections.
