Vegetarian Party Overtakes Republicans In Public Support
Baltimore, Maryland - A recent poll taken by the Academy of Herbivores shows that the Vegetarian Party has surged past the Republican Party in public support. Much of this gain is attributed to the declining level of trust given to the Republican Party by the American people. In particular, the poll found that two out of three Americans feel that Republicans do not share their values, are too extreme, greedy and corrupt. In fact, when asked, a large majority said they would rather be represented in congress by a goat than a Republican.
A detailed analysis of the poll also found that the mainstays of the modern Republican Party, racism, xenophobia, homophobia, and misogyny have reduced the base of the GOP to the thirty percent of the public that are racist, xenophobic, homophobic misogynists while alienating the remaining seventy percent of Americans. This formula may have worked for the Republicans in the past but it seems to have lost its effectiveness in the last election cycle.
If present trends continue, the American government will remain a contest between two major political parties. However, those two parties will be the Democratic Party and the Vegetarian Party.
