Two of Obama’s chief allies in destroying America are well on their way to being fired by the American People. As I noted in an earlier post, Pelosi may still be in Congress come January 2011, but she will be there as a has-been Speaker. Sen Harry Reid apparently will fair even worse. He will not be Majority Leader, because he will not even be in the Senate come 2011:
The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Nevada Voters shows Angle hitting the 50% mark for the first time since mid-August, while Reid earns 46% of the vote.
Reid has been running around 40-45% for months – the sign of certain political death for incumbents. Angle has reached the magic 50% mark, which for challengers usually indicates a win. It is heartening to think both Reid and Pelosi will have been rejected so soundly by We The People in only a few short weeks.
Update: Karl Rove points out a crystal clear indicator as to why the Dems will be fired en masse this election cycle:
Democratic voters are noticeably less enthusiastic than Republican ones. Pew found last week that 83% of Republicans said they would “definitely” vote, compared to 69% of Democrats. The GOP’s 14-point advantage is twice as big as in 1994.
Independents are energized: 65% said they would “definitely” vote, the highest since Pew began asking the question in 1994. According to a Pew poll released Sept. 23, independents prefer the GOP by 49% to 36%, a 31-point swing since the 2006 midterms.
Maybe someone will finally pay attention. If you anger the middle of America you will die politically. This ain’t rocket science. Never push outside the comfort zone of the center of America.
