51% of American Voters believe Congress is Too Liberal … Liberal Takeover Over!


This does not bode well for Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress and the 2010 midterm elections. 51% of American voter believe that Congress is too liberal. For any one, including President Obama, who wanted to believe that America was trending liberal … think again.

Fifty-one percent (51%) of voters nationwide believe that Congress is too liberal while 22% hold the opposite view and say it is too conservative. A Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey found that 14% say the ideological balance of Congress is about right and 12% are not sure.

Republicans overwhelmingly believe that Congress is too liberal, a view shared by 59% of those not affiliated with either major party.

This poll, coupled with the fact that Obama’s approval ratings are sinking, Republicans lead in the Congressional generic ballot and 57% of Americans want to replace the entire Congress … Democrats just may become an endangered party come the 2010 midterm elections. That being said, RINO’s who do not follow the will of “We the People” will also be on the outside looking in as well.

As stated at Weasel Zippers, “now a mere nine months in office and their liberal takeover is crumbling at an astonishing pace…”

      If 49% think that Congress is not too liberal, and another 22% think it should be even more liberal, well it looks like a great majority of the respondents were too damned liberal for me.

      How can anyone think that Congress is too Conservative? That blows my mind. Who are the polling anyway? These people are clueless.

      #2. Those would be the same people who voted for Barack Obama being polled who thought he was a moderate.

      The same people who could not name his VP when asked.

      When you can barely read or write and your vocabulary is three to four hundred words, it is easy to be “conned” into agreeing with someone who promises something for being lazy and a poor citizen.
      The people are awake now and the people who curently make up the House of Represenatives are in deep trouble. The Social/Progressive Democrats have worn out their welcome as a political party and will pay the price in the 2010 and 2012 elections.

      Will someone explain what “Too Liberal” means? Too intrusive? Too authoritarian?? Too…illiberal (old style)??? Too distant????

      See, please, first half of Federalist 57. As Ross useta assure us: “It’s as simple as that.”
