Rasmussen Reports ^ | September 24, 2013 | Rasmussen Reports

Posted on 09/24/2013 10:07:26 AM PDT by fwdude

Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on 10 out of the 15 major issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports.

When it comes to the most important issue on voters’ minds, the economy, the GOP leads by a 44% to 37% margin, according to new national telephone surveying.

KEYWORDS:
Still deplorable that the 'Rats have anywhere above 30% on most of these polls.

And yet, if an election were held today, the 'Rats would still pull out a significant number of victories, despite these poll numbers.

We are the Lobotomized Nation now.

People trust Democrats to give them stuff. That’s all that matters.

Obama is deliberately delaying the DeathCare exemption for unions until after the 2014 elections.....

If you are digusted now, wait till then.

Good question.

I don’t trust the GOP, either. But, generally, when people like Cruz and Lee adopt that Party identity, I can stomach them more than the Demonicrats.

1000 landline likely voters.. and a few of the ‘winning’ areas are within the poll’s +-3% sampling error. I’m depressed that it is this close.

Point is that when you vote, the choices are like to be either a Democrat or a Republican. Better for people to relatively “trust” Republicans in informing their vote.

Trust isn’t relative.

Either one is trust worthy, or one is not.

Right now there are exactly two people within the GOP that I trust.

Two.

I can't argue with you there.

Jim Jordan & Ron DeSantis are potential conservative stars to keep an eye on in the House. That is subject to change of course.

This forum has developed some strange fever. Many posters hate the GOP more then the Democrats.

More than 30% of the voters....probably more like 50% around here....have been Pavlov-trained their whole lives to believe that the Democrats “stand up for the workin’ man” while the Republicans “are for those rich bastards who are out to SCROOOOOO you.”

There’s just no convincing them.

Wouldn't you hate the ex-wife who claimed to love you yet continually cheated on you and eventually left and took half of all you own more than you'd hate the pretty girl who turned down your invitation to the senior prom years ago?

I don’t look at it that way. ..but thanks for the candidness. This forum is pretty much a hate GOP platform now. Not much criticism of Obama or even thoughts on winning over the electorate. It’s like Krauthammer says. Kamikaze tactics.

yeah, fw, I am almost to the point to where if the GOP after 2104 was left with those two members and only those two members, I’d be just fine with that.

I’m ready to start from scratch or just start over completely elsewhere.

The rest of the GOP needs to be taught that if you do not represent those who put their trust in you, then you are gone, no questions asked, just get out and don’t ever come back.

I have had it with them to the point that I cannot even describe it in civilized terms.

It's a matter of who is more reprehensible, the open, evil enemy who makes no bones about his character, or the backstabbing "friend."

The GOP has EARNED every bit of contempt that has been lavished upon it, and much more. This is a CONSERVATIVE forum, not necessarily a partisan one. And as far as criticizing Obama, how about criticizing those who ENABLE Obama? Are they not worthy of our most acrid scorn?

Only 7% behind. That’s easy to make up for with fraud.

We’ll I disagree. Obamacare did not get one Republican vote. Bonier and McConnell have pretty much halted Obama’s agenda. Gun control....Immigration reform...Climate control..changes to aid Obamacare..all DOA. The sequester is in. The polls are starting to tilt are way. Public mistrust of big government is all time high. Even Nate Silver say’s we have a decent shot at winning the Senate. The dims are going to put up that entirely beatable hillary up in 16. ...Lot’s of things going are way. The idea that Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin are the only two conservatives on the public stage and everything else is horrible I believe is not true. But the fact so many Freepers think that way discourages me.

Yeah that’s what we heard in the Colorado recall, but the people took the commies down.

Don’t be such a quitter.

I don’t know what world you are living in, but Obamacare should have been disabled in 2011 when the “R’s” took control of Congress. Boehner and McConnell are CRAFTING “immigration reform” acceptable to the Dems, and they’ve raised the debt ceiling without much of a fuss. They have caved to just about every demand of the Democrats, and where they haven’t, they have had to be dragged against their wills by insistent constituents who have deluged their offices with threats to vote them out.

By 2011 Obamecare was law. The house gas voted 40 times to get rid of it. We never had the votes. So I don’t understand what point your making. As far as immigration the house wants to pass small piecemeal legislation that can be read and comprehended. I don’t think you’ll see any legislation that’s “comprehensive” for years to come. That’s a good thing. I never liked 1000 page bills at all. W and Denny Hastert we’re almost as bad as the dims and conservatives never said a word. Now you have a house that’s much more conservative yet this board is running around with it’s hair on fire.
