    A new CNN/Opinion Research poll released today finds Republicans’ popularity badly bruised by the bitter debt ceiling debate, with the GOP’s unfavorable ratings climbing to an all-time high of 59 percent. The party’s favorable ratings, meanwhile, dropped eight points over the past month to just 33 percent. “The Democratic party, which had a favorable rating just a couple of points higher than the GOP in July, now has a 14-point advantage over the Republican party,” said CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

    The network brought on RNC Chairman Reince Priebus this afternoon to respond to numbers. While saying he hadn’t studied poll in depth, Priebus embarked on stunningly brazen spin, blaming the drop in Republicans’ approval on President Obama. Despite host Brooke Baldwin’s repeated attempts to get Priebus to address the GOP’s unpopularity, the chairman kept going back to Obama:

    That poll that didnt produce the breakdown of voters? The 800 land line calls?

    I wonder why they left that out.

    Oh goody, we get ANOTHER cnn poll about how Republicans are HATED and I'm sure when they were asked what they felt about Democrats.. the poll will show they think the Democrats are ALL SAINTS........ and Thinkprogress all in one thread.

    How lucky can we get.

    LOL So if I only poll democrats it becomes accurate. Heavy use of landlines speaks to one group of people in todays reality.

    Republicans historically have a hard time accepting responsibility. Sad, but true.

    It seems republicanism is a form of mental illness.

    Otherwise it’s telling and disturbing the extent to which the GOP refuses to accept responsibility for anything.

    It’s a bizarre form of cowardice.
