CHANGE, WITH NO HOPE …
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%.
