Thanks to Obama’s liberal tunnel vision, supported by the liberal madness of Congressional leaders in the House and Senate, it seems being a “D” in 2010 is going to be the mark of political Defeat in 2010. Polls are starting to come out showing just how big the backlash is brewing outside the beltway. Â And I am not one of those buying the meme that a summer with no change in health care costs or upswing in economic activity is going to dissipate this wave. In my opinion this is just beginning to rise.
First there is this poll from CBS showing a huge rejection of Obamacare:
That is not success, that is a disaster. Check out the full aricle, which has more detailed graphs on America’s view of President Obama’s signature screw up. This poll follows a previous Florida poll which more than illustrates the damage BEING DONE to brand “D”:
Only 34 percent of Florida voters support the new law while 54 percent are against it, according to the poll. Opposition is significantly strong among two crucial blocs: those older than 65 and voters with no party affiliation. Seniors disfavor the bill by a 65-25 percent margin, while independents oppose the law 62-34.
It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know what is playing out in Florida is playing out across the country to some extent. This led a Clinton pollster to recently admit that if the November elections were held today Democrats would see another 1994 debacle with massive congressional losses.
According to USA Today/Gallup 2010 is just like 1994 in four key metrics (see article for actual charts): Consumer Confidence, Public Satisfaction with Direction of Country, Most Members of Congress Deserve Reelection, My Representative Deserves Reelection.
What separates 2010 from 1994 is not the fact Democrats suicidally passed a massive grab and overhaul of everyone’s health care, but the fact Clinton’s administration was blessed with an extremely strong economy. Clinton basked in the rise of the dot.com bubble (something George W Bush had to address on top of 9-11). President Obama is going to face angry voters on health care against the back drop of a miserable economy and the failed liberal stimulus bill, along with massive deficits and debt as far as the eye can see.
There is very little doubt in my mind Dem0crats are going to demonstrate this fall what happens when you defy the will of the people AND fail on the economy.
