United States

Political Popularity Index
*People reveal their preference through various mediums including web search, social media, opinion surveys and financial decisions. Our model takes into account a number of key metrics.

The Republicans and Democrats are the two major political parties in the United States. We are comparing the two groups in term of popularity. A party may be unpopular in general but could still be more popular than the other party.

Analysis: President Donald Trump and the Republicans started the year well with solid public support in February. The Neil Gorsuch nomination proved to be popular for the president. However, the Republican party's failed attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare in April greatly eroded the early support. In fact, the Democrats earned their highest support of the year in that month. The House managed to narrowly pass the healthcare bill in May and as a result, the Republicans regained some support. Things are unraveling for the Republicans (particularly President Trump) in recent months with Charlottesville, the failed attempt to pass Obamacare's reforms in the Senate and the lingering Russian probe. The Democrats gained great momentum in August, but we will have to see if this is the beginning of a trend or just a blip in the radar.
