As GOP popularity tanks nationally over #GOPshutdown, Americans United runs ads against vulnerable legislators


We Will Make Them Famous And You Will Know Their Names

Things are not looking good for the Republican Party these days. Poll after poll shows that they are bleeding support in literally historic fashion. Here’s the most recent Gallup poll:

With the Republican-controlled House of Representatives engaged in a tense, government-shuttering budgetary standoff against a Democratic president and Senate, the Republican Party is now viewed favorably by 28% of Americans, down from 38% in September. This is the lowest favorable rating measured for either party since Gallup began asking this question in 1992.

Lost favorable rating of any party in over two decades. Wow.

Americans United for Change is piling on this debacle with new ads running against ten of the most vulnerable Tea Partarians across the country. Two of them, Tim Walberg and Dan Benishek, are here in Michigan. Here are the ads:

You can find the rest HERE.

Take a minute today to stop by Tim Walberg’s Facebook page and Dan Benishek’s Facebook page. Neither one of them allows you to post a comment directly on their page but you can certainly share your feelings in the comments on any of their posts. You should also call their offices or send them emails to let them know you’ve had enough of this GOP Shutdown and hostage-taking. You can find information on how to contact Rep. Benishek HERE and Rep. Walberg HERE.

Tell them it’s time for them to get back to work and stop putting our country at risk to score political points against President Obama.
