Democrats Should be Afraid, Very Afraid

Tuesday, August 31, 2010

According to the latest Gallup poll, Republicans lead Democrats 51% to 41% among registered voters in the latest weekly tracking of 2010 Congressional preferences.

The 10-percentage-point lead is the GOP’s largest so far this year and is its largest in Gallup’s history of tracking the midterm generic ballot for Congress.

Maybe losing the House and the senate is precisely what President Obusha needs to make him start governing like a president and not a senator? I’ve always believe losing the Congress benefited former President Bill Clinton. Knowing he was up against a bunch of Gingrich hooligans turned the Big Dog into a man.

    I think the American people are looking for anyone to blame for record, historic unemployment. Almost two years after Obama became president and the jobs picture in America is nearing 10% unemployment but real unemployment is probably closer to 20%. When I read about engineers forced to get jobs at Home Depot, then I understand the frustration. But let’s not make any mistakes. The Republicans don’t have any plan to offer either. We’ve had tax cuts for the rich and where are the jobs?

  2. Joe in Colorado says:

    Our economy is in ruins. The 9.5% unemployment number reported by Labor doesn’t tell the whole truth about places like Detroit, Las Vegas, Riverside County and youth unemployment. Especially among black kids the number is over 50%. I don’t know if what ails this economy can be fixed. The debt is too large and the Feds refuses to go to rehab to cure its addiction to military spending.

  3. Estacada says:

    As much as I dislike Republicans, I haven’t seen a damned thing offered up by their leadership to fix our anemic economy.

    Have I missed something?

    This Gallup poll is a comment on the desperation felt by a majority of the American people.

    I’ve had my problems with Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid but I refer them over John Boehner and Mitch McConnell anyday. I hope voters keep this in mind when they go to the polls in November because I see no evidence President Obama will rise to the place of leadership with a GOP majority in the congress.

  5. Brigadoon says:

    If Harry Reid loses his seat to Sharron Angle, then I think this bodes very badly indeed looking ahead to 2012. That broad is a lunatic. If Angle is elected, then I give up on this country.

  6. R.J. says:

    I don’t think we have to worry about Sharron Angle getting elected. People in Las Vegas can’t be that stupid.

    The unemployment rate where I live is reportedly 14% but I’m certain it’s actually much higher than that. And where are the jobs? Those tax cuts didn’t do anything to create new jobs during the past five years or more.

  7. JC says:

    Harry Reid has a very real chance to loose in Nevada. The unemployment in Las Vegas is sky high, the housing market is the worst in the nation. Sharon Angle may not be much of a candidate but running against 4 years of Harry Reid led Senate – that is 4 years of rapid steady decline followed by economy shattering debt – is fairly easy. All she needs to do is run the numbers up the screen and show Harry with Nancy (by all polls the two most disliked politicians in the nation right now.)

    The Rushpubliscums won’t flip any Houses. The MSM desperately wants to sell us this, and it WOULD be possible, if not for the lead weights of “Junket John” Boehner, “Mooch” McConnell, Kland Paul, Sharron Klangle, Klan Brewer, and the rest of the corrupt, racist scum that are guaranteeing a higher than normal minority turnout.

    I am about 100% certain that Gallup isn’t covering a very significant sliver of the minority population. Other surveys, like the one in Newsweek, indicates a much tougher race for Rushpubliscums than the MSM would have us believe.
