OBAMANOMICS: 49% Trust Republicans on Economy, Only 38% Trust Democrats


Majority of Americans Trust GOP with economy rather than Democrats with Obamanomics … 

With the economy being the #1 issue for the 2012 election, polls show that Americans trust Republicans with the economy by a 49% to 38% more than Democrats. This double digit deficit can hardly be looked upon as a positive by Barack Obama or Democrats heading into the 2012 elections. The continued unemployment rate above 8%, ever rising gas prices, out of control national debt and poor job growth recovery will have a negative impact on those who have embraced Obamacare and Obama’s policies.

As they have for nearly three years now, voters trust Republicans more than Democrats when it comes to handling the economy, by far  the top issue on a list of 10 regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports.  They put slightly more trust in Democrats on health care, the second most important issue.

Forty-nine percent (49%) of Likely U.S. Voters now trust the GOP with economic issues, while 38% trust the Democrats more. That’s the highest level of confidence in the Republicans since last October.

In January, Republicans held a 47% to 40% edge on the economy and the momentum seems to be gaining for the GOP. One has to wonder just how many Democrats up for reelection will embrace Barack Obama’s economic polices. If these numbers stay the same or get worse for Democrats, watch them run away from Barack Obama come campaign time. What Democrat in a swing district wants to have the stigma of Obama’s failed “green” energy policies and poor job creation agenda attached to them?

As correctly stated at Powerline, “There isn’t enough time between now and November for the Democrats to change voters’ perceptions that the Dems are weak on the economy,  [...]  If the Republicans stick to these issues–considering the national debt to be part of the economy issue–2012 will be a big year for the GOP.”

Like it or not the 2012 Presidential election, House, Senate and state elections are going to be determined when Americans ask themselves before they cast their vote if they are better off today than they were before Obama. Truth be told and if people are honest, very few could say yes.

      However Dems and Obama are trusted on turning algae into energy and poorly supporting with subsidies the Solyndra’s of the US.

      Do you not realize where oil comes from? Hint: It comes from long dead algae. Looks like people have been turning algae into energy for many years.
      SM: LOL … then Obama must hate BIG ALGAE TOO!!! HAHAHA.

      38%? Didn’t realize we had that high a percentage of welfare recipients in this country.

    7. Moi on April 2nd, 2012 8:01 am

      OH, and I’m not saying 100% of them are just using welfare as a free ride. There are the unfortunate who have a DESIRE to turn their lives around and do so.

      BUT, mostly those I know simply prefer the life-style of no work/free check and have no desire to adjust. :<(

      Obama is now threatening the Supmeme Justices to not turn over his Obamascare agenda.

      #2, actually the earth has been turning algae into oil for years, not people. The greenies are the ones who want to try and control nature and spend money they don’t have to convert something that occurs anyway into the same dirty fuel that they hate. Hmm.

      @9 think that has more to do with the limited supply then green issues.
