Just 19% of Americans have confidence in Republicans, while a whopping 80% do not.
A new poll that found Americans with serious doubts about all their elected officials, but Republicans scored particularly badly—even with their own voters.
Just 36% of self-identified Republican voters say they have faith that their lawmakers will make good decisions.
They’re damning numbers for a party that’s hoping to retake the Senate in 2014, hold onto the House of Representatives, and locate a promising candidate capable of beating the Democratic matriarch Hillary Clinton.
In contrast, Congressional Democrats had the support of their own party—a majority support them—but just 27% of Americans overall.
“80 percent,” Morning Joe host’s Joe Scarborough remarked on Monday. “Four out of five people do not trust the Republican Party right now…I keep going back to that 80 percent for Republicans; that’s just about as bad as it gets.”
