80 percent. That’s a huge number. To get that many Americans to agree on anything is extremely rare these days. And that has to especially sting if you’re a Republican.

An overwhelming 80 percent of Americans don’t trust Republicans.

According to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll, a stunning 80 percent majority do not trust Republicans to govern the nation. Worse, the GOP can’t even get 20 percent of Americans to trust them. That number stands at just 19 percent. We’re talking about a major political party that desperately hopes to take over the Senate and keep control of the House in 2014 and find a viable candidate to capture the White House in 2016. These poll numbers should totally embarrass Republicans.

Democrats and President Obama scored much better in the Washington Post/ABC News poll.

On the other hand, Democrats and President Obama scored much better, but not by a whole lot. President Obama’s approval rating now stands at 46 percent, a four point upswing since November. Meanwhile, 27 percent of Americans have faith in Democrats, while 72 percent don’t. Sure, those numbers are still pretty bad, but not nearly as horrible as the flack Republicans are taking. Even most Republican voters aren’t enamored with the GOP right now, with only 36 percent saying they approve of how their party is functioning. It’s the complete opposite for the Democratic Party, as most of their members are united in approval.

Republicans are doing worse now than they were during the government shutdown.

These latest Republican numbers are even lower than they were during the government shutdown in October. At that time, an NBC/WSJ poll found that GOP favorability had hit a record low of 28 percent. Clearly, with only 19 percent viewing the party positively in this new poll, Republicans are even more hated now.

The never-ending war on women, immigrants, the poor, people of color, and the LGBT community has completely destroyed the GOP. When only one out of five Americans says you’re party is working just fine, that’s not a problem, that’s a disaster. But the party doesn’t show any signs of changing any time soon. Yet another showdown over the debt ceiling is looming and even as courts strike down their anti-gay and anti-abortion agenda, Republicans are refusing to budge on these issues. And that’s even as a majority of Americans support Democrats on both of these social issues. That being said, the poll shows that an equal number of people plan to vote for Republican candidate as plan to vote for a Democrat. In short, as much as many voters hate Republicans, they’re too ignorant and narrow-minded to punish them in the voting booth. And that is the tragedy within this poll.
