Poll: A Pathetic 22% of Americans Are Republicans

Americans are, at long last, getting smart. 

It's been a long time coming.

A USA TODAY/Pew Research Center Poll finds that Americans have little or no use for the Republican Party:
Now just 22% of Americans, nearly a record low, consider themselves Republicans.

 The president's overall job approval rating is 51%, a bit higher than it typically has been for the past three years. The approval rating for Republican congressional leaders is a dismal 25%. Democratic congressional leaders stand in-between, at 37%.
 And while Obama’s 51% job approval rating is down slightly from a post-election high of 55%, it remains well above the 25% approval rating for GOP congressional leaders. The job rating for Democratic leaders is higher (37%), though more disapprove (55%) than approve of their performance.
