More terrible Democrat polling leading up the the 2010 midterm elections …
While President Barack Hussein Obama continues to trot out the same tired speech of Republicans driving the economy into the ditch, according to a new CNN poll, the voters trust the GOP more than Democrats to get fix the economy. Full poll results [pdf] here. How Bad must Obama and Democrats be in the eyes of Americans if they trust the people who they belived caused the problem to fix it as well? There is a reason why Obama has a poor job approval rating and the polls can be tied directly to his poor handling of the economy and his lack of making jobs the number one, two and three priority of his Presidency.
Although more people blame the Republicans than the Democrats for the country’s economic problems, a larger number of people think the Republicans are more likely to fix those problems, according to a new national poll.
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Monday indicates that 41 percent of adult Americans say congressional Republicans are more responsible for the nation’s economic problems, with 35 percent saying the Democrats are more to blame, and nearly one in five saying both are equally to blame.
But 47 percent of those questioned say the economic policies of congressional Republicans are more likely to improve economic conditions, with 41 percent saying Democrats in Congress have the better prescriptions, five percent saying both have equally good solutions and five percent saying neither are more likely to improve conditions.
Once again Obama has lost the spin war with the economy and who can do a better job to get the car out of the ditch. The voters appear to disagree with the President as to who should be given the keys. For 20+ months all Obama has managed to do is “SPIN” the tires.
Independents are on the side of the GOP as well. Although they may blame the GOP for the economic woes, they gave no confidence in Democrats to fix the problem. The MSM is beside them self with such polling data that ”We the People” have zero confidence in Democrats to fix anything, but in fact make matters worse. The MSM calls it a “polling disconnect”. No, it is a hard truth that Barack Obama and Democrats had an opportunity to fix the economy and made Obamacare more important. The job growth has been anemic and all Democrats have accomplished is keeping the economy on life support. Democrats continue to create of nervous economic environment and cower in the corner afraid to hold an up and down vote on extending all of the Bush tax cuts. They knew from the day they took office that these tax cuts for all would expire at years end and never thought it important enough to hold a vote. Why, because there is more bi-partisan effort for extending all cuts than there is for the class warfare that Democrats are pushing.
What a statement made by Independents and all voters alike, even though they blame Republicans for the economic situation, they do not trust Democrats at all th fix the problem. Talk about abject failure in the eyes of the American people as Dems controlled the White House, Senate and House.
“Independents are the key group on these questions,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “By a five-point margin, they tend to blame the GOP for our current economic woes. But they prefer the GOP over the Democrats by 13 points when asked which party can improve economic conditions.”
