A new Quinnipiac poll finds the Democratic Party is less disliked than the GOP: the Democrats get a negative 38% to 44% percent favorability, compared to a negative 28% to 52% for the Republicans.

Voters also give Republicans in Congress a negative 19% to 71% job approval, compared to a negative 34% to 59% for the Democrats in Congress.

“The Republican brand is essentially in the toilet these days, but it’s worth remembering the Democrats faced a similar situation in the late 1980s and got their house in order and returned to power in short order,” said pollster Peter Brown
