“Monday’s Gallup report showed the president’s weekly job approval rating at a low of 47 percent. And as the Democratic Party’s favorability has dropped to 41 percent — the lowest in Gallup’s 18-year history of measuring it — this week’s Rasmussen Reports survey shows the Republican Party with a nine-point lead in the generic congressional vote. Moreover, independents, who are more energized than Democrats, are leaning Republican by a 2-to-1 margin.
What all this means is that Republicans are ripe to pick up major gains in both chambers this November.” – Washington Post
I am convinced the Democrats are so in denial about their chances this fall that no advice will be welcomed. Certainly Obama, lemming in chief, refuses to see the forest for the trees. On both sides of the political spectrum and the vast middle, people are pissed, unemployed and unhappy. Nothing will quiet their anger except throwing the bums out.
Yet I fear we may not get to excise our demons in time to make a difference. Many states are on the brink of financial disaster and our nation’s debt load could soon overwhelm us. People either get real about unfunded entitlements or we all go down together.
