Another Polling Trend that Does Not Bode Well for Dems … Republicans Remain Ahead on Generic Ballot


Yet another troubling polling trend from the Rasmussen Report for Democrats. For the second week in a row, Republicans lead Democrats in the Generic Ballot. What does this tell us? That the voters are beginning to blame the “tax & spend” policies of Obama and the Democrats for the continued economic problems. When will Democrats put jobs first and their political power grab agenda second?

If Democrats think its going to get better, they best think again. What’s on the horizon … higher unemployment numbers, “Cap & Trade,” funding of Obamacare and the talk by some of a second stimulus package. Americans will be taxed to death and no jobs to boot. Wait until “We the People” voice our opinions about that.

Republican candidates lead Democrats for the second straight week in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 41% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 38% would choose the Democratic candidate.

      “When will Democrats put jobs first and their political power grab agenda second?”

      Apparently someone is forgetting the last 8 years, and just how much the government grew while Bush was in office. How convenient, hm?

      A new poll that I pulled out of my a**, says Americans want Sarah Palin for president and they hate Obama.Proving once again that Obama being president and Dems having a 60-40 majority is all a dream….

      I can see red now in the corner of his shower curled up in a ball with his thumb in his mouth rocking back and forth saying “theres no place like home”

      Altho it is encouraging to hear that American Voters
      are waking up to the destruction of our Free Enterprise
      System by the Obowma gang, precious few of our
      Republicans are showing their Conservative Values.
      Adherence to the Constitution is essential to our well
      being. Competitive enterprise (not government fiddling)
      is core to our ‘recovery’. Obowma and minions are
      flailing away at our foundations at a fevered pitch. He
      is exposed as a failing to keep his word and his plans
      and programs are having a decidedly Negative Impact
      on our future. ‘Throwing the Bums Out’ is called for.

      This Administration is the epitome of ‘Insanity’, IMO.

      #1: Are you talking about the 30 czars Bush had? Oh wait, that’s O.

      #1 & #2: Are you guys paid to defend the indefensible? If you are so against government growth, why aren’t you having a fit about New Hampshire (just an example) getting $400 million and with that creating a) more government which will spend $2 million of these precious “job creating” dollars b) a mere 34 full time jobs and 16 part time jobs? Why aren’t you having a fit that the US government OWNS a car company and an Insurance company? You must be campaigning hard to stop crap & tax and government controlled health care because again, these are growth of government.

      Speaking of growth in government – are you concerned that Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood remarked in May that his livability initiative “is a way to coerce people out of their cars.” When asked if this was government intrusion into people’s lives, LaHood responded that “about everything we do around here is government intrusion in people’s lives.”? but apparently he doesn’t have a problem with government growth or government intrusion.

      Speaking of Czars, you must be very angry about this little tidbit:

      Carol Browner, former Clinton administration EPA head and current Obama White House climate czar, instructed auto industry execs “to put nothing in writing, ever” regarding secret negotiations she orchestrated regarding a deal to increase federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards.

      That’s certainly government growth and control. OR, is all your posturing simply about “standing by your man”?

      Let them complain about President Bush; it is their choice. I speak purely from experience. My husband and I had jobs. We were able to pay our bills and eat for the first time in our married lives. This was in the last 6 years of President Bush’s term. Our adult children had jobs and were able to pay their bills. We felt safer in the world of terrorism, and we felt that the President was watching out for us. My husband lost his job in February. My oldest son is losing his job. My job is on the line; because, the business where I work is getting slower everyday and I travel to work. There are no jobs for me or my husband in central Pennsylvania. My son in law is layed off more than he works. It’s only a matter of time before we lose everything we’ve worked so hard for all our lives. We didn’t foolishly buy a super mortgage. We don’t have brand new cars or credit cards. We just worked together very hard and bought what we could afford. Our reward will be homelessness. This is what I base my opinion on.

      I wonder if they will treat starvation with this new health care. I guess that’s something we can all look forward to.

      PA mom,

      your news sucks, hope it gets better soon.

      but you can’t blame this on Bush or Obama

      and the healthcare should be better for ppl not having jobs (cause they are still insured)
