Rasmussen: Generic Congressional Ballot: Republicans 45%, Democrats 38%


The Congress may have all-time lows in job approval ratings, but the news is much worser for Democrats. According to the most recent Rasmussen poll, the Generic Congressional ballot as Republicans ahead of Democrats by 7 percentage points, 45% to 38%. This hardly bodes well for the Democrats to take back the House and retain the US Senate.

Republicans led by six points the week before, 45% to 39%, and seven points 44% to 37%, the week before that.

      Could it be that many “conservative” Democrats have come to the realization that their party was hijacked in 2008 by a Socialist/Marxist who deceptively ran for the highest office in the land under the liberal banner? In other words … a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

      In 2008 … following background research regarding Obama’s past Socialist/Marxist affiliations … a blogger named RED clearly saw the red flags. I cannot comprehend why Artur Davis, the former Democratic Black Congressman from Alabama, could not see the writing on the wall?

      WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: And joining us now is Artur Davis, the former Democratic Congressman from Alabama. You served four terms as a Democrat in Congress.

      You gave this beautiful speech, seconding the nomination of Barack Obama to be the Democratic presidential nominee, and now you say you’re not going to vote for him the next time around. Why?

      ARTUR DAVIS (R), FORMER U.S. REPRESENTATIVE: I made a decision a few weeks ago to leave the Democratic Party and become Republican for a variety of reasons. Yes, I am going to vote for Mitt Romney.

      I started out as a conservative southern Democrat. I used to be room for conservative southern Democrats in the Democratic Party. By the time I left the party, I didn’t see that room there anymore. … fast forward four years later, I think the Obama administration has candidly gone too far to the left.

      It is imperative that each citizen within a democratic society does not accept the words of ANY candidate during an election campaign at face value. Research into past affiliations/associations/positions that will reveal the truth regarding political ideologies as well as stands regarding the issues that affect ALL citizens is where it is at. In other words … that precious ballot must represent an informed choice.


      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)

      ‘Back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said that the American people would never vote for socialism but he said under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program.’
