Democrats have a 10-point favorability gap: 43 percent of voters have a positive opinion of the party, while 53 percent arent thrilled. The Republican Party also gets a thumbs-down from 53 percent of the nations voters, with just 41 percent saying theyre happy with the GOP.
Voters think the economys a wreck
but whos to blame? Thirty-five percent of voters in early exit polls pin the blame on Wall Street. The next name on the list: former President Bush 29 percent point their fingers in his direction. President Obama follows, at 24 percent.
Unfavorable gap = 0 between the two parties. That can’t bode well for the Democrats.
Obviously the 29% who blame Bush are your leftist moonbat fringe. Pubbies blame Obama 24%. Not sure where the vote would break down for Wall Street.
States To Watch HOUR BY HOUR
This reminds me of Dan Rather calling Fla. for Gore based on exit polls.
This is a disappointment to me. It appears that to some degree at least, the Dems were right that the voters would forget the arrogant, elitist way that they rammed health care “reform” down America’s throat.
In Indiana, if we take IN-2, IN-8 and IN-9, it’s going to be ugly for the RATS. 2-of-3 = 50-60 seat gain. All 3-of-3 = an absolute perfect storm.
In KY, look at KY-3 and KY-6. If we take the Louisville district, the Dems are screwed. And obviously the Paul race, which we should win hands down.
As Klintoon said.. it’s the economy, stupid. Which is NEVER good for the party in power historically.
Buried in the AP piece... four in 10 support the tea party... Me thinks it’s going to be ugly for the Dems.
Only about a quarter of voters in Tuesday’s House races blamed Obama for the nation’s economic troubles. But about half think Obama’s policies will hurt the country.
About four out of 10 voters said they support the tea party movement, and they overwhelmingly voted Republican.
