Dem’s Poll Crash Continues

Published by at 6:55 am under 2010 Elections,Obamacare

We are witnessing history in the making folks. We are watching how a major political party becomes extinct by totally disconnecting from We The People and deciding the party will control the nation regardless of what the voters want.

As noted in my previous posts, the country wants to throw Congress out – and I would wager they also want to start dismantling the bloated federal beast which is choking our economy with liberal/progressive polices. Today more polls are out reiterating the historic screw up of the Democrats now running DC.

First we visit the second Gallup stunner in so many days (click to enlarge):

Note that the Democrat Party is now has less approval in the nation than in 1994. Neither party is doing well, both have become disconnected due to their madness to dictate the course of the country from DC. The GOP has an opening to show they do not want ascendency, they want to empower We The People (which means sharing power with moderates and centrists). This is something the GOP and conservatives still need to demonstrate to the voters.

But it is the Democrats who are now on America’s sh*t list. America will put freshman GOP candidates in place, even temporarily, to stop the liberal madness and roll it back. Even a doubtful GOP is better than these radical liberals, for the short term.

Next up is a Fox News poll, which just drives another nail into the next few election cycles for Democrats. We The People just don’t like what Democrats have been doing:

President Obama’s overall job approval rating dropped to a new low of 43 percent. Nearly half — 48 percent — disapprove. In mid-March, it was 46-48 percent. His current rating among Democrats (80 percent) and independents (38 percent) are among his lowest ratings with these groups.

The poll finds by a 54 to 39 percent margin, American voters oppose the new health care law.

Few voters like the new health care law in its current form. Only 12 percent think it should be implemented as is. Nearly half — 47 percent — think it needs to be changed, and 36 percent would repeal it all together.

Amazing, 83% say change Obama care or junk it, only 12% stand by the reeking mess that came out of Congress.

And it is the independents that are making this all possible, as seen in this news from Ohio:

In what could be a worrisome sign for the party that controls the White House and Ohio governor’s office, substantially more Democrats than Republicans are switching parties this year in early absentee-ballot requests from Ohio’s largest counties.

In Cuyahoga County, for example, the number of Democrats switching to the GOP outnumbered Republicans becoming Democrats by nearly 7 to 1 as of Tuesday. Two years ago, nearly five times as many Republicans switched in Ohio’s largest county.

Democrats lead the party conversions by almost 9 to 1 in Hamilton County, while it’s about 6 to 1 in Franklin County. Statewide totals aren’t available, but the three counties contain about 30 percent of all registered voters in Ohio.

When the GOP got too full of itself and uber conservatives were running around acting as if they were the only valued voice on the planet the independents put the Democrats in power. Now these independents are going to put the GOP back in power, but with one purpose – remove the reigns of power from DC forever – so no party can pretend to run the country and dictate to the rest of us how we should live our lives.

We The People will be the ones pursuing life, liberty and happiness without direction from DC fools.

    I am worried about the backlash. The political pendulum swings back and forth. If it swings far to the left, (As it is today) then a far right swing can be expected. How far right? Then when it swings back to the left, who knows? What I worry about is will it settle down and sway less, more in the middle? If not, we may be in a world of hurt. The very republic could be in danger.

  3. WWS says:

    Hey joe, the republic is already in danger. No point “worrying” about it, we’re there. Now the game is try and figure out how to save it, and getting rid of the cretins in charge has got to be the first step. But yeah, that’s just the first step, and things will actually get worse for a while after we do that before they get better. Don’t fool yourself, we’ve got at least 10 years of economic misery in front of us no matter who’s in charge.

    Looks like it didn’t take Bart Stoolpack long to figure out his betrayal wasn’t going to play so well in November. Were the 30 pieces of silver you took worth it, Bart?

    Although in his case, is with most of the so-called “moderate” dems, I don’t think it was really so much of a betrayal – deep down, they are all lying, hard core libs who can and should never be trusted. Maybe Obama’s biggest mistake of all will turn out to be pushing so many of them into a position where they finally had to show their True Colors – just like Stoolpak had to.

    Joe, pendulums never swing back as far as they were originally. A swing back to the “right” is not going to be near what you might think. But at this point, one has to hope for any kind of movement away from the extreme Left turn that the country has taken. IMO, the Leftist Dems did not get to this point by themselves, they had help along the way. Republicans acting like Democrats and not standing up for our distinct differences and principles, contributed to this current state of affairs.

    In November, anti-incumbent sentiment is going to go after both parties. A Congress critter from either party is at risk, because the anger and angst of “We The People” is going to blame almost anybody associated with those hallowed halls with this destruction of freedom for Americans. Personally, I am appreciative of the Tea Party movement for being so strong in keeping our hopes alive for rescuing our country.

  5. kathie says:

    So the “tea party” movement is proving to be as powerful or more powerful than Joan Baez, Nancy, Harry and Barack. Lets hope the middle, the “tea party”, the American people will end the 60″s group thinking once and for all. They need permanent retirement.

  6. WWS says:

    Nothing catches my mood these days better than these words delivered by Old Ironsides when he found himself in a similar situation:

    Dissolution of the Long Parliament by Oliver Cromwell given to the House of Commons, 20 April 1653

    “It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonored by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.

    Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter’d your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?

    Ye sordid prostitutes have you not defil’d this sacred place, and turn’d the Lord’s temple into a den of thieves, by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress’d, are yourselves gone! So! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors.

    In the name of God, go!”

  7. WWS:

    I made that the subject of a post of mine
    ( THIS should be the attitude of voters this November … )
    which prompted this email from a friend:

    Paul,

    The Cromwell quote is from the time when he dissolved parliament and set up a dictatorship as Lord High Protector.

    You know they dug him up and threw his bones in the Thames, he was that popular.

    Even so, I’d find it extremely difficult to better encapsulate my feelings toward the current bunch running our country, and also towards the MSM, which seems to be equally deserving of it.

    That old boy certainly had a way with words. :-)

  8. kathie says:

    I concur WWS, bring on 1653.

  9. WWS says:

    The story of Cromwell and the Parliament was one of the first efforts to work out some checks and balances without a King – they didn’t get it right, but those lessons were very instrumental to those who wrote *our* constitution, since they all knew this history very well. That was one of the central questions of 1787 – how do we set up a government without a king, and yet keep it from falling apart like the parliamentarian government did? Our system of checks and balances was the answer.

    Also, I find the story of throwing Cromwell’s bones into the Thames very amusing when the incident is looked at realistically; Cromwell was *so* intimidating and powerful in his day that his worst enemies didn’t dare to raise a finger against him until *After* he had been Dead for 3 Years! Brave men, to attack a pile of old bones so fiercely!!

    It was as if they had to make sure that he really would stay in the ground for those 3 years before they could work up the nerve to openly oppose him. Cromwell’s biggest longterm flaw, and a recurring flaw in most strongmen who rule on the basis of their personality, is that he never set up any workable system of succession. His government fell apart quickly once the force of his will was gone, which left a vacuum which his enemies could exploit. Eventually they all agreed to ask the Kings back, and those who were still opposed mostly took ship to the New World. Hence the genesis of our revolutionary sentiment, and the reason that most of our Founders looked back on Cromwell with a good deal of admiration.

    (also: in the interest of Historical fairness, I do think that the execution of Charles I was a crime, although probably a necessary one for the times)

    All incumbents in both parties need to be replaced by the conservatives that will abide by the first principles: limited, self-governance, low taxes, controlled spending, lower debts and deficits. Find ways to pay off the debts and unfunded liabilities.

    I see that Charles Bolden and Obama rationaled the cancellation of the Constellation project because they cannot afford to pay for it.

    How IRONIC!

    How can they rationale the enactment of ObamaCare that they have NO money to pay for it? VAT?

    If you are going to pass VAT on top of our current tax system, find a way to fund NASA and NOT cancel the Constellation project!

  11. lurker9876 says:

    Good thing that the checks and balances still has “We The People” to fight against the executive, judiciary, and legislation branches who have gone so close to the point of dictatorship and the absence of checks and balances.

    I don’t think the Americans are no longer willing to be complacent these days. They are waking up to see that they can no longer accept anything coming out of WDC.

  12. lurker9876 says:

    Obama’s policies are going to wipe out the non-entitlement programs, such as defense and NASA as he will soon find out that he cannot afford SS, Medicare, Medicaid, and now ObamaCare.

    And he still wants to push Cap n Trade and Amnesty????

  13. lurker9876 says:

    And Stevens’ retirement just may get interesting if and only if the Republicans have the COURAGE to stand up to the Democrats.

  14. [...] a centrist-left Democrat party. But that was the opportunity wasted and now gone.  The reality, as I noted this morning, is when you ignore the wishes of We The People in a democracy We The People fire your [...]

    My latest post on my blog (“Rethinking Recall”), addresses the idea of recalling U.S. Representatives and Senators, in the context of our checks and balance, and whether we shouild take measures to be able to.

    Predictably, once I’ve decided one way on that issue, something will occur that causes me to go “Uh,… on second thought…”

    Joe,

    I think the pendulum swings have been the problem and the center is starting to stand up and say enough is enough. That is why the Tea Party is 40% Democrat and Independents. My guess is it is majority center-left to center-right.

    It seems we may slam that pendulum in place this year.

    Hey, the Democrats are NOT on my Sh*t List, because I don’t have a Sh*t List. However, sh*t IS on my Democrat list…

    That was interesting. It really was.

    We bought into the “moderate” Republican meme in 2000 and 2004. We were told to hold our noses whilst comparing the alternative. Look what it got us; big spending Republicans (Bush was not a Conservative). No more McCain types. No more Olympia Snow. No more Lyndsey Graham et al.

    Sorry, but if we have any hope of saving this country, it will take a solid Conservative message, not more of the same post-2000 “compassionate Conservative” nonsense.

    Are we to believe the “centrists” and “moderates” will save the day after the mess Bush & co. created? Both parties were Big Government Big Spending politicians. The difference was the Reps were taking us on a tour guide bus and the Dems are using a space shuttle.

    Who is going to argue the Tea Party is chocked full of “moderates”? McCain is a so-called moderate, but I don’t see any Tea Partiers waving banners for him. He is exactly why people like me dropped out in 2008. We’re sick of his brand. That he has ‘got religion’ is too late; global warming, immigration……people are fed up.

    These same moderates opposing Obamacare never saw a government program they didn’t like when Bush was in office. Am I a Bush hater? No.

    I suspect many (in the millions) Democrat voters are much more conservative than they realized and were voting for the Party. Now that they’ve seen the direction our country is heading, there will hell to pay for the Democrats.

    BTW, Bart Stupak was also a “moderate” :)

    Voters should be careful about voting for the switchers from dim to republican. They are doing this to survive but probably have not changed their ideology. In the past a lot of dims switched but went on to sabotage the republican party from within , i.e. Specter. I do hope the voters have learned their lesson and will vote on past records not on what the candidates promise or name recognition or how the candidate looks. Dims will lie to win. The dim party will put charismatic candidates on the ballot. Actually, dims will do just about anything to win and are not to be trusted.
