CNN ^ | 11/2/2010 | CNN

Sixty-two percent of voters name the economy as their most important issue this year. Health care ranks a distant second, at 19 percent. Illegal immigration and Afghanistan follow at 8 and 7 percent.

From separate posts:

Democrats have a 10-point favorability gap: 43 percent of voters have a positive opinion of the party, while 53 percent aren’t thrilled. The Republican Party also gets a thumbs-down from 53 percent of the nation’s voters, with just 41 percent saying they’re happy with the GOP.

and

Voters think the economy’s a wreck…but who’s 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.

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.

Yep, “it’s the economy, stupid” was what I was going to mention as well.

This time it’s Obama and Pelosi and Reid - a health-care tax instead of jobs.

Real bright thinking there ... not
