SHARE GOP voters knock Republicans for being ‘out of touch’

Democrats have a much more favorable view of their own party than Republicans do, a new poll shows.

The Rasmussen poll shows 62 percent of Republicans think the GOP has lost touch with its voter base. Only 33 percent of Democrats feel the same way about their congressional representatives.

The poll also gives Republicans low approval ratings, with only 28 percent of likely Republican voters saying they believe GOP members of Congress have done a “good job representing GOP values.”

On the Democratic side, 53 percent of likely Democratic voters say they believe their elected officials have done a good job representing their party’s values.
