Via Allahpundit, voters view the Democratic party more disfavorably than favorably for the first time since Gallup began tracking this figure in 1992. As you can see, the Democrats had a double-digit lead in their favorable rating even during the 1994 GOP takeover. What does it mean that 54% of voters disapprove of the Democrats, while only 41% of voters view the Democratic party favorably?

Correction: This post originally incorrectly stated that voters viewed the GOP more favorably than the Democrats for the first time.
