    New ABC/WaPo poll out finds that only 20 percent of Americans claim to be Republicans, a 26-year low. Additionally, while a majority believe the country is on the wrong track, 49 percent trust Obama to make the right decisions for the country, versus 34 percent who trust Congressional Democrats, and a paltry 19 percent who trust the Congressional Republicans. (The 20 percent claim to be GOP number is apparently not in the data to which I linked, but ABC reported it on their evening newscast).

    You can probably verify the percentages elsewhere. To be a Republican today is awful. Why does our party suck? No leadership, no message, a hysterical voice. Replace the leadership, get a solid conservative message, get a calm voice in a moderate tone.

    Post Poll: Only 20% Identify As Republicans, Lowest Since 1983

    Reporting on the new ABC/Washington Post poll has mostly focused on support for a public health care option. But the poll also shows that, while Republicans have succeeded in stonewalling Democratic initiatives in Congress, they have not managed to rebuild their party.
    Only 20 percent of respondents identified themselves as Republicans -- the lowest number since 1983.
    "These numbers, coming roughly one year before the 2010 midterm elections, show that any celebration on the GOP's behalf is premature as the party has yet to convince most voters that it can be a viable alternative to Democratic control in Washington today," wrote Chris Cillizza.

    The republicans haven't been a viable alternative since at least the days of Barry Goldwater.
