Despite an all out campaign by the Obama administration and Congressional Democrats to convince voters that ‘D’ is for ‘drive’ and ‘R’ is for reverse, voters none-the-less now trust the Pachyderms more than the Jackasses on all 10 top issues, according to a new Rasmussen poll.
The most interesting part of this poll is the results for the issue of ‘government ethics’. Democrats won in large measure by painting Republicans as hopelessly corrupt. Obama ran on the promise to “clean up Washington” and Speaker Pelosi pledged that her Congress would be “the most ethical Congress in history.” Even though Rassmussen reports that “more than one-in-five voters (22%) are still not sure which party to trust more on ethics issues”, the Republicans are edging out the Dems on that issue.
The Democrats are in real trouble. The voters have realized that they have been sold a ‘lemon’, and no amount of salesmanship is likely to alleviate their ‘buyers remorse’.
