According to a new Washington Post/ABC News poll, a disastrous midterm election awaits Congressional Democrats, with little time left to reverse their fortunes.
· Republicans hold a slight edge on the economy for the first time, with 43 percent of registered voters trusting the GOP versus 39 percent who favor Democrats
· The enthusiasm gap remains: Among those most likely to vote this fall, 53 percent plan to vote Republican, versus only 40 percent for Democrats
· Democrats are hemorrhaging the all-important Independent vote. Independents say they’ll back GOP House candidates by a 13-point margin, while disapproval of Obama among Independents has reached an all time high of 57 percent
As I see it, President Obama ignored the polls in 2009 which showed an overwhelming majority of voters were desperately concerned about jobs and the economy — not national healthcare.
Democrats and by extension, the president, will reap the voters wrath in November.
