The Republican Party is taking a massive beating as of late, especially thanks to the mounting number of sexual assault and misconduct allegations against Republican Alabama Senate nominee Roy Moore. It has definitely taken a toll on the GOP, as a recent Fox News poll showed Democrat Doug Jones beating Moore in the race by eight points.
But that Fox News poll contained another big ‘F*ck you’ to conservatives – in the Fox News survey, it was discovered that former President Barack Obama had a better popularity rating among Alabama voters that Donald Trump. The crazy thing is, Trump won by almost 30 percentage points in the state last year – and now Obama is viewed more favorably! That’s how much Trump has killed his own presidency!
The poll reported that 52% of Alabamans liked Trump’s predecessor, while only 49% approve of Trump. The number of Alabamans that viewed Trump unfavorably was also higher than Obama’s score.
And to prove just how much Trump and his corrupt conservative buddies have damaged the reputation of the Republican Party, no other GOP name listed (such as Jeff Sessions, Luther Strange, and Roy Moore) were able to beat Obama’s score.
The GOP has basically destroyed itself so much that it’s making the Democrats look better, even in red states! Alabama is actually one of the most conservative states in America, and Obama had lost that state by over 20 points in both of his campaigns. The fact that Trump is failing so horribly in the state now proves that his presidency has done severe damage to the opinions of American voters.
If the Republican Party cannot fix this – and fast – the entire country will be swept in blue pretty soon. And the funny thing is, they will only have themselves to blame.
