GOP favorability rating at new high and outperforms Democrats

Gallop:
Forty-five percent of Americans now have a favorable view of the Republican Party, a nine-point gain from last September's 36%. It is the party's most positive image since it registered 47% in January 2011, shortly after taking control of the House in the 2010 midterm elections. Forty-four percent give the Democratic Party a favorable rating.

The parity in Republicans' and Democrats' favorable ratings marks a change from what has generally been the case since Barack Obama's election as president in November 2008. Republicans have usually been rated less positively than Democrats over this time, with the Republican Party's favorability rating for the last decade averaging 39%, compared with the Democratic Party's 44%.

Only one other time in the last decade has the Republican Party had a significantly higher score than the Democratic Party. That one exception came in November 2014, immediately after elections that saw Republicans capture control of the Senate and expand their majority in the House, when 42% rated the GOP favorably and 36% the Democrats.
...
This is inconsistent with other polls showing a Democrat advantage in teh mid-terms.  But there are reasons to believe it.  Rasmussen polling has been showing increased positive polling from blacks and Hispanics for President Trump and that has to be at the expense of the Democrat coalition which relies on monolithic voting from both groups.

Personally, I was not polled, but I am eager to vote against Democrats.
