If the cause was not damage to the nation, Democrats would be smiling at this news. Just 28% of Americans approve of the GOP, a record low number, according to Gallup.
The previous record low number for the GOP was 31%. When was that? Right after the GOP House under Speaker Gingrich impeached Bill Clinton.
Can you imagine that the American people don't like the Republican party closing down the government and threatening default? To those of us in the real world, the collapse of the Republican brand comes as no surprise.
In the same poll, Gallup found 43% approval for the Democratic party.
