Voters Trust the Republicans More

In corruption, Jackasses, Pachyderms, polls on August 28, 2010 at 8:39 pm

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.

Issue  Democrats  Republicans
 Education  40%  41%
 Health Care  40%  48%
 Iraq  40%  43%
 Economy  39%  47%
 Social Security  38%  44%
 Government Ethics  38%  40%
 National Security  37%  49%
 Afghanistan  36%  43%
 Taxes  36%  52%
 Immigration  35%  44%

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’.

America Declared its Independence from _______.

In Obama, polls on July 3, 2010 at 9:13 pm

From which country did the United States win its independence?  One in four Americans don’t know that the correct answer is Great Britain, and one in five Americans don’t have any clue at all.  This is according to a new poll conducted by Marist Poll.

According to the poll, those least likely to correctly respond to the question were women, non-whites, and those under thirty years of age.  See the breakdown here.

It is interesting to note that these demographics are very similar to the demographics of the typical Obama supporter
