A Pew survey of 2,000 American adults found that the public’s dislike of the Republican Party has spiked to levels not seen in nearly a quarter of a century.

The Guardian reports:

Only 33% of the American public has a favorable view of the Republican party, while nearly two-thirds – 62% – say that they have an unfavorable view of the party. It’s an increase in negative views of the party from last October, when a still-not-great 58% told Pew Research Center that they viewed the Republican party unfavorably.

The frustration with the direction of the party has even passed on to card-carrying members of the party, only 68% of whom view the Republican party positively. By comparison, the Democratic party is viewed positively by 88% of its members. Just 28% of independents view the Republican party favorably.
