Have they been *this* unpopular before? No.
Republicans have been losing support since 2005, but supporters haven't been switching over to Democrats. People are losing faith in the political system in general. The conservatives are just doing it faster. Everybody used to support one party or the other, and the combined support would exceed 100%. In 2002, it was up to 116%. Many people supported both parties. Now it appears only 71% are still misguided.
