More bad news from Gallup for the GOP

Yeah, I saw this on Wonkette, but thought it was worth reposting.  It must be difficult for GOP strategists to be running against such a difficult headwind on this issue…

The Republican Party clearly has lost a lot of support since 2001, the first year of George W. Bush’s administration. Most of the loss in support actually occurred beginning in 2005, after Hurricane Katrina and Bush’s nomination of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court — both of which created major public relations problems for the administration — and amid declining support for the Iraq war. By the end of 2008, the party had its worst positioning against the Democrats in nearly two decades.

The GOP may have stemmed those losses for now, as it does not appear to have lost any more support since Obama took office. But as the analysis presented here shows, the losses the GOP has suffered have come among nearly all demographic groups apart from some of the most ardent Republican subgroups.
