GOP popularity rises in latest poll Why now

Serious question: why is the Republican Party’s favorability at its highest point in seven years? Are they circling the wagons at an embattled moment in time with a Supreme Court justice nominee and midterm elections both hanging in the balance? Are they doing things that appeal better to independents? Did President Trump step up his Tweets?

It appears the first choice is the most likely. In one year, the perspectives of Republicans and right-leaning independents rose sharply from 67% to 85%. It’s noteworthy that this time last year when the 2017 poll was taken, the GOP had just failed to repeal Obamacare.

Republican Party Favorability Highest in Seven Years

https://news.gallup.com/poll/242906/republican-party-favorability-highest-seven-years.aspxWhile Republicans have become significantly more positive about their party over the past year, Democrats’ views of the Republican Party and their own Democratic Party have essentially not changed.

For the Republican Party, less than two months away from an election that could see them lose control of both the House and the Senate, gains in public favorability are a welcome sign. The party has been wallowing in favorable ratings below 40% for most of the last five years after rarely sinking that low in the previous two decades.

With a little over a month until the midterm elections, Republicans need all the help they can get to retain control of the House and Senate. If this is indeed a case of Republicans circling the wagons, they’ll need to keep in type formation never break ranks.
