Republican Party Voters See GOP Heading In Wrong Direction: ABC News-Washington Post Poll

More than eight months removed from a 2012 presidential election loss, a new poll finds that GOP voters are still having doubts about their party's progress.

An ABC-Washington Post poll released Tuesday finds that 52 percent of Republicans and GOP-leaning independents see the right going in the wrong direction.

That marks a 20-percent jump from August 2012, and a majority for the first time among six polls conducted since 1994, according to ABC News.

Earlier this month, a Quinnipiac University poll found that blame for Congressional gridlock was not limited to the GOP. The July 12 sampling had 64 percent of folks attributing fault to both Democrats and Republicans, and 23 percent placing the onus solely on the GOP.

HuffPost Pollster's chart on GOP favorability finds similar results from a collection of all Americans. A compilation of 25 polls last updated a month ago has 51.6 percent of people viewing the party in an unfavorable light, while 35.6 percent see it favorably.
