Democrats in Worse Position Than 2010
People are waking up to the fact the liberalism doesn’t work. Literally.
Check it out:
A new Fox News poll goes a long way to explaining the growing anxiety among Democrats about the upcoming midterm elections. Not only is support for Obama and his signature Obamacare law underwater, both are more unpopular than they were at this point ahead of the mid-term elections in 2010. Support for the Democrats and Obamacare, in fact, is less than it was on the eve of the 2010 election, when Republicans routed Democrats up and down the ballot.
Today, just 42% of voters approve of the job Obama is doing as President, while 51% disapprove. Among Independents, Obama fares worse, with just 32% approving of his performance and 62% disapproving. In late April, 2010, however, voter approval of Obama was split, 46-46. Obama’s approval ratings today almost match those in late October 2010 when 41% of voters approved and 50% disapproved.
In this latest poll, Republicans lead the generic Congressional ballot by 3 points, 44-41. This is roughly were the party stood in April 2010, with the GOP leading Democrats 42-38.
