It is of course true that Republicans’ approval ratings have plummeted to historic new lows. And of course this fact has been widely reported in the media and elsewhere. Naturally. But as Breitbart’s John Nolte writes, is it not also worth pointing out that voters’ perception of Democrats isn’t all that much better, either? He continued:

What a difference a single point makes.

The news that the Republican Party hit record low approval ratings in the Gallup tracking poll made all kinds of headlines this week, and justifiably so. But one point this way and another, and it would be the Democrats dealing with the "record low" headlines, because in that same Gallup poll that shows the GOP at record lows also shows the Democrat Party just a single point above its own record low of 40%.

Republican approval is still 12 points lower at 28%.

In a just world without a miserably corrupt media, the media would have reported on the Democrats' obvious woes just as loudly as they did the Republicans'.

Oh well. On the bright side, Jake Tapper recently came out and publicly acknowledged that media bias is a real phenomenon. So will other journalists follow suit, I wonder? Nah. Don’t count on it. At least not anytime soon.
