Washington Post/ABC Poll: Republicans Out of Sync With Americans

The newly released Washington Post/ABC poll highlights just how out-of-sync this broken Republican Congress is with the American people. A few key numbers:

  • Only 21 percent of Americans identified themselves as Republicans, the lowest number since November 2009.
  • A majority (52 percent) of Republicans think that the Republican Party is going in the wrong direction. By contrast, 72 percent of Democrats think the Democratic Party is going in the right direction.
  • 68 percent of voters (and 72 percent of independents) think it’s more important to cooperate across party lines than to stick to their party’s positions and obstruct.
  • The overwhelming majority of voters (63 percent) will blame House Republicans if their obstruction means Congress fails to approve comprehensive immigration reform.
