Skip to comments.Democrats' own mood poll scares them
Posted on 06/30/2005 10:29:00 AM PDT by StoneGiant
A poll on the political mood in the United States conducted by the Democratic Party has alarmed the party at its own loss of popularity.
Conducted by the party-affiliated Democracy Corps, the poll indicated 43 percent of voters favored the Republican Party, while 38 percent had positive feelings about Democrats.

You probably have to give it another 3 points on top of those numbers just because of the bias of who was doing the polling.
MORE ABOUT THIS POLL . . .
"The country is just in a foul mood," says Democratic strategist James Carville. He cites a new poll from Democracy Corps in which 56 percent of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction. Democracy Corps provides public opinion polling and strategic advice to Democrats. It was cofounded by Mr. Carville and Stanley Greenberg, who served as President Clinton's pollster.
THE LATEST DEMOCRACY CORPS SURVEY, CONDUCTED JUNE 20-26, FOUND THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE "NOT DOING VERY WELL," Mr. Greenberg said at a Monitor breakfast.
Some 43 percent of voters said they had warm feelings about the Republican Party, while only 38 percent had positive feelings about Democrats. "Republicans weakened in this poll ... but it shows Democrats weakening more," Greenberg said. He attributes the decline to voters' perceptions that Democrats have "no core set of convictions or point of view."
You read correctly, Carville and Greenberg's own poll indicates that, yes, Republican job approval ratings are down (including the President's) BUT the Democrats' ratings are down MORE!!!!
POSITIVE (WARM) FEELINGS
48% (Mean 50.0%) President Bush
43% (Mean 49.8%) the Republican Party
41% (Mean 47.6%) the Republican Congress
38% (Mean 48.9%) the Democrat Party
NOTE: The President and Republicans outpoll the DIMS despite the fact that this poll grossly oversamples Democrats and Democrat-oriented constituency groups, e.g., women, minorities, and adults over the age of 60!
THIS IS WHY THE DIMS AND THEIR MEDIA ENABLERS ARE HYSTERICAL . . . THEY ATTACK THE PRESIDENT RELENTLESSLY AND STILL CAN'T EXCEED HIS APPROVAL RATINGS AT THE POLLS!
That's because the Republicans allow the Democrats to get their way too often. The country moves in the wrong direction, while people wring their hands and say "Why don't the Republicans get a spine?!"
This is bad news-we don't want the Democrats to change a thing, least of all the DNC's chairman Screamin' Dean. I prefer it when they're fat, dumb and happy.
You mean they were surprised by the results of the poll? What a bunch of losers and dunderheads.
And let's hope Howard Dean remains as chairman of the DNC for a loooooooonnnnnngggggg time.
Well, good grief, if the face you show to the public is both as mendacious and as relentlessly negative as the Dems have been of late, you have to expect people to react in kind. This should be news to nobody.
They will redouble their efforts to malign the troops and slander the President!
Clearly the message is not being received by the American People. Probably Fox News is using their mind control beams again to block Howard Dean's sane message of Truth to Power!
Ist der nicht ein Demokrat? Ja ist der ein Demokrat! Ist die nicht
eine schmutzige Ratte? Ja ist die eine schmutzige Ratte!
Strategery + Schardenfreude = Stratenschardenfreudery
> "Why don't the Republicans get a spine?!"
I dislike the Republicans. But I dislike the Democrats even more. Especially Carville :-)
Isn't that a democrat? Is the one democrat! Isn't those a dirty rat? Is the one dirty rat!
That headline is priceless!
"THIS IS WHY THE DIMS AND THEIR MEDIA ENABLERS ARE HYSTERICAL . . . THEY ATTACK THE PRESIDENT RELENTLESSLY AND STILL CAN'T EXCEED HIS APPROVAL RATINGS AT THE POLLS!"
Shhhhhhh. . . They might figure out that all the attacking perpetuates their problem.
Is Democrat feminine, masculine, or neuter (die, der, or das)?
Let's hop "Neuter."
Let's hope "Neuter."
>>>Probably Fox News is using their mind control beams again to block Howard Dean's sane message of Truth to Power!>>>
Yes. Why just last week I yanked out that filling that was giving them full access to my brain with their mind control beams. Whew, thank God that is over.
Got any Advil?
At long last some sanity in all this doom and gloom in the MSM about Bush, Iraq, and Bush. Things are not as bad as they may seem.
"I prefer it when they're fat, dumb and happy."
No worries about the dumb part, that'll never change.
What I translated was;
Is that not a Democrat? Yes that is a Democrat! Is that not a dirty rat? Yes that is a dirty rat!
What about their ring? What does their mood RING tell them?
How can you think positive about a group of people who have nothing positive to say. This is not rocket science.
""The country is just in a foul mood," says Democratic strategist James Carville. He cites a new poll from Democracy Corps in which 56 percent of Americans say the country is headed in the wrong direction."
I think the country is going in the wrong direction also. But that is because of the leftists judges and school boards who are running things. Just because I feel this way does not mean I would have voted for sKerry or most any other demoncrat.
This is BEAUTIFUL! It confirms what I had hoped amid all of the bad poll numbers of the past few months for the President and especially for Congress. Basically, a lot of people aren't happy with Congress, but this doesn't mean that they're going to be pulling the lever for the Dems in '06. If anything, a lot of the negativity directed at the government today is directed at the Dem obstructionists and the hysterical left who are STILL trying to drag the country to hell, despite the fact that we continue to refute their will at the ballot box. If this continues we will see the Dems reduced to third party status within a generation. Awesome news!
Für Sie erhalten, was Sie zahlen.
They're just letting something get published about it now because there aren't as many brain-stem-reflexive leftists left to vote for them.
Consumer confidence was at a three year high in the latest poll on that topic. Do you think that people are not is as bad a mood as CueBall thinks. Republicans are enjoying life and RATS are cry babies. It will get better for conservatives as teh Presidents agenda is passed before the next recess.
I suspect recent Supreme Court activities have shown the democrats that the "liberals" propensity to feed on their own is guaranteed to come around and bite them eventually. As such, the "true" democrats will attempt to separate themselves first from "liberal democrats" and then from "liberals" in general. In the short term it will fracture the party. But in the long term, watch for Hillary to redefine herself as a "democrat" (not a "liberal") and mend the fence as memories fade.
Half of the wrong direction people want less spending. They want the nuclear option and no compromise by the 14 idiot Senators. They oppose prescription drug care and NCLB nationalization of local schools. That does not bode well for the Dems.
Bush is extremely popular in Blue Illinois, especially on the war in Iraq. Novak is right in observing that Durbin has gone Washington and is out of touch with Illinois and Mayor Daley had to spank Durbin because Dubin's idiocy was hurting other Dems here.
Everybody hates democrats. And with good reason.
Eine gute Demokrat is eine kaput Demokrat.
It's a parody of the German drinking song, "Schnitzlebanc".
Better German would have been:
Ist das nicht ein Demokrat? Ja das ist der ein Demokrat! Ist das nicht eine schmutzige Ratte? Ja das ist eine schmutzige Ratte!
Der and Die have gender, but Das does not.
Is that not a Democrat. Yes that is a democrat. Is that not a dirty rat. Yes that is a dirty rat.
Thanks for the translation. I could pretty much tell what he was saying. I was just having fun with Babelfish, which really makes a hash of whatever language you are porting.
Ja das ist der ein Demokrat! should read:
Ja, das ist ein Democrat'
Perhaps their Ring was destroyed....
Nicht ist es die Wahrheit.
Sie können nicht mit Macintosh Eiferern argumentieren. Sie gerechtes Kopfnicken Ihr Kopf und Sagen "ja."
Alle, das wir sind Macintosh Benutzer zur Marke... sehr loyal gerade
um um Anstürme Limbaugh bitten!
Babelfish hashes it again!
All, which are we Macintosh user to the mark... much loyal straight over for attacks Limbaugh ask!
Ich verstehe nicht ein Wort von ihm.
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
I don't normally pay much heed to polls, let alone Dimpolls, but this is fun. (see threadheader and post4)
oh, that's CHOICE
