Not a map or chart, but probably part of the "shit":

Those numbers looked strange to me, so I did a search.  Here's Gallup's numbers for the same question for this month:

http://www.gallup.com/poll/123161/Republican-Party-Image-Improves-Trails-Democrats.aspx

Favorable ratings of the Republican Party, by region:

East             37
Midwest        42
South           44
West            37


That seems more accurate given party registrations.  It wouldn't surprise me to see overall GOP favorability in the East at, say, 30% in some polls, but 7% is ridiculous.  Not ridiculous for Manhattan, for example, but ridiculous for the whole region, which includes upstate NY and central PA, after all.  Rick Santorum didn't lose 85%-15%.

Fredericks' posting comes from a Washington Monthly columnist's (wrong) interpretation of a Research 2000 poll for DailyKOS.  The poll was actually about Congressional Republicans, not the Republican Party.

The Republican Party is more popular in the South, but not that much more.  Something's wrong when polls in the same week are so far apart, and when the regions are that far off.


I apologize for my wonkery, but analyzing data is a good bit of what I get paid for.
I really don't appreciate your sarcastic, anti-comedy tone, Bro!

Breakfast- I'm havin' a time
Wheelies- I'm havin' a time
Headlocks- I'm havin' a time
Drunk Tank- not so much a time
George St.- I'm havin' a time
Brenda- I'm havin' a time
Bingo- I'm havin' a time
House Arrest- I'm still havin' a time

Buffcoat's version is much more believable.

Appreciate the clarification Buffer.   I still have a much cooler picture.  And you know the olde cliche:  A picture.....

Especially since it looks like every region is Flipping The Bird. Can the Republican party split into the "Crazy Ass Republicans" and the "Actual Republicans" and the Democrats can split into the "Who Are We Kidding We're Not Really Democrats" and the "Actual Democrats"? It would make it easier for everyone involved.

Don't you think the Actual Republicans might as well merge with the WAWKWNRD while they're at it?

No, because WAWKWNRD's like me would probably annoy them with our residual affection for FDR, JFK, Social Security and mild distrust of the rich.  But maybe we could bond over Ronald Reagan and Joe Lieberman.
