Slowly but surely, it seems that the Republicans are getting a little bit of their mojo back.
How? Simply by saying “no”. Because, when it comes to Obama’s agenda, it seems that saying “no” is enough for Republicans to gain more support of the American people.
Some recent polling from Rasmussen tells the tale.
By a long-shot, the economy is the number one issue on people’s minds, and they don’t think Obama and the Democrat’s are doing such a good job dealing with it.
Overwhelmingly, they think the government is spending (and borrowing) way too much money, and the national deficit and debt are looming larger in voter’s minds. Seventy-one percent agree that Obama’s policies have driven up the deficit.
As for Obama’s latest push for bigger government, so-called health care “reform”, it would seem the Democrats aren’t on the same page with voters. Forty-eight percent rate the US healthcare system as “good” or “excellent”, with only nineteen percent rating it as “poor” – hardly a cry for a radical overhaul of the system.
Over half the country now opposes the “reform” plan working its way through Congress…which seems to demonstrate that the harder Obama and Pelosi push for it, the more ground it loses.
Seventy-six percent of voters believe that it’s at least “somewhat likely” that their taxes will be raised if Obama’s healthcare “reform” becomes law, (at least fifty-nine percent are positive about it).
