With the constant media blitz from the Obama campaign and the endless brainpower coming from Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid, you might think public support on key issues was growing for the Democrats. In reality, however, support on every single issue, including the issues most often considered “Democrat,” voters are agreeing more and more with Republicans.
To put some substance behind this, take a look at the latest from Rasmussen asking voters with whom they agree on the most pressing issues:
Note the trend on the “Democrat” issues of health care and education. This marks the first time Republicans have hit 10 for 10 on these issues and clearly shows that the Obama administration has not been effective in convincing voters to believe in bigger government, higher taxes, more inefficient bureaucracy and a loss of personal liberty.
A large part of the erosion is likely coming from liberal members of the Democrat Party disillusioned with Obama’s seeming inability to cram the liberal social agenda down American’s throats. However, that doesn’t explain increased GOP support which is coming from independent voters, many of whom previously supported President Obama.
Rasmussen is just one poll, however, other outlets are showing strikingly similar results. A recent CNN Poll shows similar reactions from voters:
WASHINGTON (CNN) – For the first time since he took over in the White House, Americans don’t see eye to eye with President Barack Obama on the important issues, according to a new national poll. But the CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey does indicate that a majority approve of how Obama’s handling his duties as president.
According to the poll, which was released Tuesday, 48 percent of people questioned say that they agree with Obama on the issues that matter most to them, with 51 percent saying no. That’s a switch from April, when 57 percent said they agreed with the president on important issues, with 41 percent disagreeing.
A recent Harris Interactive poll also shows voters growing concerned over President Obama’s inability to govern on many issues:
It is somewhat stunning that the highest level of “pretty good” tops out at 41%.
In response to falling poll numbers and growing resistance to President Obama’s policies, the administration has begun attacking Fox News. This makes perfect sense because President Obama isn’t used to the media questioning his policies or demanding answers since none of the other media outlets do.
The administration is crashing and burning on many fronts, I’m amazed that they think Fox News is their biggest problem. Perhaps they should examine their own failing liberal polices and incompetence before throwing stones.
