The Democratic Party hit its lowest favorability mark in 25 years in a CNN poll released Tuesday, with only 37 percent of Americans saying they have a positive view of the party.

The study, conducted by independent research company SSRS, found 54 percent of Americans have an unfavorable view of the party. Fifty percent, though, said if elections for Congress were being held today they would vote for the Democratic Party's candidate, compared to 38 percent who said they would vote for the Republican Party's candidate.

Fifty-nine percent said they would vote for a congressional candidate who opposes President Donald Trump, while 35 percent said they would side with a candidate who supports the president.

The GOP fares worse, with only 30 percent of Americans saying they have a favorable view of the party compared to 61 percent who say they have an unfavorable view.

On tax reform, 45 percent said they oppose the GOP proposal, while 31 percent said they favor it. Thirty-six percent said they thought they and their families would fare the same if the tax legislation passes and is signed into law, compared to 32 percent who say they think their families would be worse off. Twenty-one percent said they think they would be better off.

The poll was conducted Nov. 2-5 among 1,021 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
