Calling A Person Republican=Insult
Breaking News: Recent polls suggest the majority of Americans consider being called “Republican” insulting.
The independent political polling company NSON Opinion Strategy  recently published the results of a case study in which 250,000 randomly selected American voters were asked a series of questions. The details of how and where the study was conducted have yet to be released but the results are clear: 87% of Americans consider the word “Republican” to be synonymous with greed, racism, and violence.
The NSON Opinion Strategy poll was conducted by interviewing random individual in the downtown area of 12 different U.S. cities: New York, Hanover, Providence, Louisville, Indianapolis, Nashville, Atlanta, Orlando, Miami, Denver, Seattle, and San Diego.
Regardless or different biases that can be argued about how the cities where chosen it comes to no surprise that GOP is loosing touch with the electorate. Perhaps if the GOP really wants to reinvent themselves they will have to start with a new name.
