Republicans Have 7 Point Lead in Generic Congressional Ballot over Democrats



Remember following the 2008 elections when all in the MSM proclaimed that the Republican party was all but dead.  Barack Obama had beat John McCain and the Democrats controlled the House and the Senate by a wide majority.

Amazing what can take place in just one short year during which Obama and the liberal wing of the Democrat party headed by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid over played their hand. Hell bent on changing America to some thing no one wants, Democrats feel it in the polls.

Republican candidates now have a 7 point lead in the latest edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot. In January of 2009, Democrats had a 6 point lead. In less than a year since Obama has been President there has been 13 point swing. What cannot be lost in the Generic Congressional Ballot swing to Republicans is also Obama’s free fall in the polls. The swing to Republicans, Obama falling poll numbers, Americans opposing Obamacare and Obama’s falling approval rating with regards to Afghanistan all show a repudiation of Obama and the Dems policies.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% would vote for their district’s Republican congressional candidate while 37% would opt for his or her Democratic opponent.

Support for the Republican party held steady from last week, while support for Democrats dropped slightly. Republicans have held the lead for over four months now. Democrats currently have majority control of both the House and Senate.

Voters not affiliated with either party continue to heavily favor Republicans, 44% to 20%.

      I want to be the first to say it here. Or, maybe I’m not the first, but I’ll write it anyway. After all this is said and done, Obama’s administration and Obama himself will go down as THE most HATED administration and President of ALL times.

      …and it was quickly found that the Emperor indeed had no clothes. The charismatic speeches(like the flute of the Pied Piper of Hamlin) made during the primaries and election rang hollow and the American public was made aware of the insidious plan to rob ourselves and our progeny of health and financial security.

      Lessons learned, as the polls are fast steadily indicating as we move toward the elections of 2010 & 2012.

      He is NOT running the White House…Rahm the ballet dancer and Axelrod along with Pelosi and Reid are running the show…Obama was the perfect candidate for them to get what they wanted. He is the manchurian candidate in a weird sort of way…..

      BTW, anyone see him yesterday? Looks like he’s aged already 10 years…well, he wanted it now he has it….

      Also, new poll, just 39% of white Americans now approve…but they will be called racists; although he got 61% of the white vote to get elected….

      People are NOW seeing what a disaster this tool is…

      pelosi and her boys used obama for the black vote. now he is basically as useless to them as he is to this country.
      they can’t pull their boy out of the crisis he created, nor would they. he is finished.

      It’s going to take a long time to fix all he’s messed up. We can start in 2010 & 2012 and vote these fools out of office. This is the most incompetent bunch I’ve ever seen, they make Jimmy Carter look like a genius. As #1 pointed out, Obama will go down as the worst President in history.
