WSJ Poll, Voters Fleeing from Democrats Ahead of 2010 Midterm Elections … Bad to be the Party of BO


Some times its good to be the party of “NO”, especially when in 2010 you are it is  the party of BO.

All polling data is showing that American voters are fleeing the Democrats and the S.S. Obama. Add another one to the list, this time it is the Wall Street Journal poll that shows that there has been a definite shift in voter support from Democrats to Republicans. The voters that Republicans lost in recent elections appear to be coming home.

Republicans have solidified support among voters who had drifted from the party in recent elections, putting the GOP in position for a strong comeback in November’s mid-term campaign, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.

The findings suggest that public opinion has hardened in advance of the 2010 elections, making it tougher for Democrats to translate their legislative successes, or a tentatively improving U.S. economy, into gains among voters.

The WSJ/NBC poll also bares witness to the fact that Independents have abandoned the Democrat party. They must be less than happy with Obama’s “hope & change” promises of 2008.

A big shift is evident among independents, who at this point in the 2006 campaign favored Democratic control of Congress rather than Republican control, 40% to 24%. In this poll, independents favored the GOP, 38% to 30%.

Suburban women favored Democratic control four years ago by a 24-point margin. In the latest survey, they narrowly favored Republicans winning the House. A similar turnaround was seen among voters 65 and older.

“This is the inverse of where we were four years ago, and in a way that projects to substantial Democratic losses in November,” Mr. McInturff said.

The new survey gives incumbents of either party little reason for comfort. Only about one in five respondents approved of the job Congress is doing.

As The Lonely Conservative states, it’s okay to be the party of “NO” especially when WE THE PEOPLE are in direct opposition to the path that Obama and the liberal, progressive Democrats are taking us down. Why would Republicans reach across the aisle and bail out Democrats and aid them in destroying America?

The majority of Americans want politicians to stand up in opposition to Obamacare, Cap & Trade, bail outs and any Immigration reform that would include amnesty. The polls once again show it’s bad to be the Party of BO.

      Well the truth about the Democratic agenda is finally out in the open. The people are waking up and they don’t like what they see.
      As the old guy in Indiana had placed on his tombstone in 1890 “The Democrats are resopnsible for everything that is bad in our country” and it is so true.
