This is from the Washington, DC, CBS affiliate. This just spells out one of the results from the latest Pew Research study. This is not good. The Pew Research study is the one that shows Democrat voter enthusiasm way, way up all of a sudden, in the swing states. And the story from the Washington, DC, CBS affiliate headline is: “Only 15 Percent Of Democrats Believe Economic News Is Bad — According to a recent study from the Pew Research Center … new data found that just 15 percent of Democrats believe that recent economic news is mostly poor, a percentage that took a significant drop from the 31 percent of Democrats polled last month who did think that economic news was mostly bad.
“According to the study, the 15-percent clip is among the lowest percentages during President Barack Obama’s nearly four years in office. Sixty percent of Republicans find that most of the economic news is bad. Among independents, the percentage is 36 percent,” who think the economic news is bad. And both of these data sets remain virtually unchanged from a month ago. I mean, you can fool some of the people all the time, but the good news here is that the Drive-Bys are not fooling anybody but the fools. I mean, they’re not creating new fools. They’re not converting people into fools. All they’re doing is preaching to the fools.
Do you believe only 15% of Democrats think the economy’s in bad shape? Why would you say that? If you didn’t care what the state of the economy was, then you probably would think it’s okay. And I’d venture to say that there’s a heck of a lot of Democrats who probably don’t care, ’cause they don’t depend on the economy. They depend on the government, and the government’s always there regardless what the state of the economy is.
