Every Republican should be tarred and feathered for not explaining to the American public that it was the Democrats' subprime loan scams via Fannie Mae which tanked the US economy. No amount of leveraging or derivatives would have gone bad had not all those securities been stuffed with subprime loan mortgages.
That poll is certainly a way to encourage those first time voters who elected 0bama to show up for a mid-term election between two white guys running for Congress. /sarc
Wow, just in time to get GOP candidates to distance themselves from the Tea Party and go back where they belong, to “working with the other side”!
What an incredible coincidence!!
What a big surprise from the terrorist media.
It could very well be. A lot of Americans hate Wall Street and see it the symbol of American greed. They don’t know what they’re talking about, but see it that way nevertheless. And Obama has been playing up that perception every chance he gets. He continually uses it to divide the country.
No they do not take the lead, not by a longshot. Rass has the pubbies plus 6, and Fox has them plus 4, and both are likely voter polls as opposed to Gallup which is just adults.
Gallup is a garbage poll not supported by other polls.
Meaningless claptrap from Gallup. But watch, the GOP leaders will immediately start trying to be accommodating to Obama. Mark my words.
Gallup does not screen for likely voters until closer to Election Day, but historically, Republicans' turnout advantage in midterm elections changes the Republican-Democrat gap by five percentage points in the GOP's favor. Thus, if these numbers held through Election Day, the two parties would be nearly tied at the ballot box, with possibly a slight advantage for the Democrats.
In other words, this poll is nearly meaningless. Read earlier for the "money quote":
Simultaneous with increased support for Democratic congressional candidates, Gallup polling last week found Republican voters expressing significantly more enthusiasm about voting in the 2010 midterms. The 51% of Republicans saying they are "very enthusiastic" about voting this fall is up from 40% the week prior, and is the highest since early April -- shortly after passage of healthcare reform. Democratic enthusiasm is unchanged, at 28%.
I know things are getting real bad, but are lying liberal, commie, socialist, thieving, pigs just generic now? ;-)
I do not believe this and think Gallup has also sold out to the dem power machine.
And in other news pigs were seen flying over the Wally World parking lot...
I’m trying to remember the last time someone said “Gallup sure called this one right!”
The Oct 1994 Gallup generic ballot had the Parties tied at 46%. Today Rasmussen has the spread at GOP + 9.
random sample of 1,535 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia, selected using random-digit-dial sampling.
This sounds more like a push poll to help the democrats feel better about themselves, kinda like a self-esteem class.
