Democracy Corps is announcing a new initiative -- the Republican Party Project -- by releasing results from the project's first national survey. 

The President and Democrats won big in 2012 but Republicans now set the terms of the debate -- governing from the gerrymandered House and half the states where they have complete control over the governorships and state legislatures.  But instead of moving to the center, brokering compromise, and working with Democrats, the Republican Party has moved dramatically to the right and endangered itself as a national party -- yet pundits are convinced the party will pay no price for having little national appeal.

Last week, House Democrats released a new policy agenda called “When Women Succeed, America Succeeds.”   Their agenda is divided into three broad policy areas—pay, work and family balance, and childcare—with policies in each category aimed at addressing fundamental challenges in women’s economic lives.

While the ways in which American families earn income has changed dramatically over the last 30 years, the laws, assumptions, institutions, and structures that govern the economy have not. This has left many women on the edge—or struggling to keep up with demands at work and costs at home.

Less than a week after Paul Ryan released his latest budget—which would slash funding for Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, and child care—Republicans released a new report announcing that they will try harder to connect with young voters, minorities, and women.

They also show a path forward on economic messaging.

Our first Democracy Corps national survey of 2013 shows the Republican Party and Congress unpopular and out of step with mainstream politics and values.

·         The Republican Party brand has steeply eroded since Election Day.  Half of all voters (51 percent) now give the Party a negative rating and a third rate the party very negatively (under 25 on our 100-point scale).

·         The Republican Congress’s job approval rating is at the lowest point in our tracking; almost three quarters (73 percent) of voters now disapprove.   And just a quarter of all voters (24 percent) give John Boehner a positive rating.

·         Americans do not trust Republican representatives and Congressional leaders to use good judgment when it comes to negotiating budget agreements with Democrats and the President.  By an 11-point margin, voters say they trust Democrats more than Republicans and by a 25-point margin, voters say they trust Barack Obama more than John Boehner.

·         On the other hand, Barack Obama’s job approval and personal ratings have climbed since the election and fiscal cliff agreement—54 percent approve of the President’s job performance and 53 percent give him a positive personal rating.

 

Strong majorities of voters view the Republican Party’s positions on critical economic and social issues as extreme.

·         On the rights of gays, 60 percent view the Republican Party as extreme, 41 percent strongly.

·         On women’s issues, 55 percent view the Republican Party as extreme, 40 percent strongly.

·         On providing aid to the poor, 59 percent view the Republican Party as extreme, 39 percent strongly.

·         On setting tax levels for millionaires and big corporations, 59 percent view the Republican Party as extreme, 43 percent strongly.
