« Obama's Bay Of Rigs: The President's Chickens Come Home To Roost | Main | Food For Thought »

"There's any number of reasons for this"

Amongst them I'd count Barack Hussein Obama... mmm, mmm, mmm...  And then Pelosi and Reid...  followed by Holden, Geithner, Gibbs, Emmanuel, Ayers, Wright, Jones and what the hell... Biden too:

Gallup's generic polling shows the number of voters saying that they would vote for Republicans rising three points from last week, while the number saying they will vote for Democrats dropped four points.  The 49%-43% lead for the Republicans is the largest that the pollster has ever recorded for the party.  Moreover, Democratic enthusiasm for voting this fall fell a point, while enthusiasm among Republicans stayed about fifteen points higher.  This indicates an even wider lead for Republicans once Gallup imposes a likely voter screen this fall.

There's any number of reasons for this:  the public's perception of Obama's response to the oil spill, the shaky stock market performance last week, continued concern about the economy and spending.

-Real Clear Politics

America is waking up.  Slowly but surely.

It's change to believe in.

A lot of us said that in November 2008. Conversely, John McCain would have been the absolutely worst thing that could have happened to the Republicans.

He's done wonders for the gun and ammo industries. Come to think of it, they've been the only one's consistently hiring since January 2009.

Tsar Nicholas II:

Well, things are so grim on Main Street (unemployment, foreclosures, rising insurance premiums, etc.) even some Democrats are waking up from their comas and are starting to get a clue.

Obviously this year's elections will be a bloodbath for Team Obama.

The real question, though, is how many people will have fallen back asleep by Nov. 2012.

Is this an open Obama spew-thread? Well it is now.

The only area where Barry has excelled has been in proving affirmative action is a failed liberal experiment.

That is the announced game plan in this falls elections. You didn't really expect the Democrats to run on their own record of the last two years did you?

I blame Bush. :)

He is obviously the better choice by far over Obama.


And Nancy Pelosi swears that the dems will be in the majority after Nov. Of course she also says that her stance on killing babies is consistent with her religous faith. (I dont know what faith that is, I know she is supposed to be Catholic but I can tell you she is not one who follows the tenets of the Catholic Church).

The sad thing is that as incompetent as the president is in pretending to run the nation (while putting his beloved socialism into place,) the voters of america have proven themselves far more incompetent at their job of electing a leader.

Never has such an obvious "pig in the poke" been bought while meoowing loudly before.

Hank:

What's really impressive about the sagging poll numbers is that the MSM has done all they can to provide cover for Obama and the dems.

Imagine if they had been reporting the "news" as they had during the Bush years. The poll numbers would be "unexpectedly" lower than they are.

Gmac:

Maybe, just maybe people are sick and tired of having legislation they vehemently disagree with forced on them. Tired of having their tax dollars being used to pay off political cronies and watching their and their children's future being wasted on politically motivated projects that only benefit a small sector of the population.

Yes, Democrats are finding out that there's a conservative tide rising and they are buried in the sand up to their necks with voting records at the low tide waterline.

James H:

I am very close to voting Republican in my congressional race this year. One of the potential nominees is very impressive and well-informed.

In other districts, he'd be classed a RINO, I think, but he strikes me as a good fit for my district.

JLawson:

James H -

I always try to figure out who can do the job best, by looking at their backgrounds and what they've done in the past. I don't much care about party affiliation - what I care about is the candidate.

I've voted for Democrats, I've voted for Republicans. Sure, it's a bit harder than straight party-line voting, but I've not been dissatisfied with the folks I've researched and voted for.

Of course, 'can do the job best' is pretty subjective...

WildWillie:

I agree with JLawson. I have voted democrats into office in local positions like County Clerk, a judge, etc. Even some state races. Nationally though, Pelosi and the uber far left has taken over the party and simply does not listen to the people. I am positive I am not alone in that assessment. The dem's are killing themselves on the national level. ww

James H:

Here's something that worries me:

I've heard of circumstances in local politics where a lot of people are simply unwilling to reach across the aisle and work with the other party. At the federal level, that kind of thing is poisonous. At the local level it can be positively lethal. Such things as "attracting business to the community" or "extend sewer service to another neighborhood" really shouldn't be partisan issues.

The wingnut hatred of Obama rages on.

Hey Rick! Time for an update on your Alabama favorite Les Phillip?

The man you said had the right stuff? The "Fire in the belly?

lol.

Philips got 16 percent of the vote. He's a spectacular loser.

Lee Ward:

But there's good news for Tea Party supporters. Dale Peterson, the man Rick promoted saying "I'd">http://wizbangblog.com/content/2010/05/18/id-vote-for-dale-peterson-if-i-could.php">"I'd vote for Dale Peterson if I could" got a whopping 27 percent!

And both of these tallies, 16 and 27 percent, were in the Republican primaries, not a general election.

The rabid Obama-hating Tea Party is failing again, unable to do better than 3rd place in these two primary races.

Wizbang bloggers are way off the mark. They're promoting viewpoints that are embraced by a fraction of the voting populace.

Wizbang Wingnuts - it's an echo chamber for losers.
