Just Two Weeks of Obama and the New Congress and Public Opinion Swings

Some buyers remorse. Maybe it's obvious to lots of people that Onama and the Democrats aren't taking their responsibilities serious. They do seem more interested in getting money to ACORN than in dealing seriously with real problems. And it cannot have helped to have Blago, Geithner, Dashle, Dodd, Frank and Rangel all over the news while the lost president lectures America on ethics, etc. What is below is copied and pasted from a Rasmussen story dated Tuesday, February 10, 2009.

"Are Republicans winning the public relations battle over spending in the $800-billion-plus economic stimulus package? Democrats and Republicans are nearly even in this week's edition of the Generic Congressional Ballot.

"The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone surveys found that the Democrats’ lead is down to just one percentage point. Forty percent (40%) of voters said they would vote for their district’s Democratic candidate while 39% said they would choose the Republican (see crosstabs).

"This marks the lowest level of support for the Democrats in tracking history and is the closest the two parties have been on the generic ballot.

"Only four percent (4%) said they would vote for a candidate from another political party.

"Last week, 42% said they would support their Democratic candidate, and 38% said they would vote Republican.

"Over the past year, Democratic support has ranged from a low of 40% to a high of 50%. In that same time period, Republicans have been preferred by 34% to 41% of voters nationwide."
