Republican Party Less Popular Than Dick Cheney
Maybe Dick Cheney should keep talking to bring his party’s popularity up to his 26% level. A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows the party is viewed favorably by just 25%, down from 29% in April. Greg at Plumline puts it in perspective.
There a couple of takeaways here. First, it appears that Cheney is doing a better job of making his own case than the current crop of GOP leaders are doing on behalf of the party as a whole, even though he’s no longer in office. And second, it gives the lie to the notion that Cheney’s ongoing media tour is helpful to the GOP overall, as some party leaders have publicly claimed to think. In reality, he only seems to be helping himself.
