The Ides of March Looks to Punish Democrats

Posted on Updated on

November is coming…

obamadancegoon.pngIn March 2006, when George W. Bush was president, 41% rated the economy “excellent” or “good” while 24% called it “poor” in an ABC News/Washington Post poll. Yet in that year’s midterms, Republicans lost six Senate seats and 30 House seats.

The situation facing Democrats is more ominous. The March 2 ABC News/Washington Post survey reported a mere 28% rated the economy “excellent” or “good” while 28% called it “poor.” Unless the Obama economy dramatically improves, it will be politically toxic for Democrats.

Democrats no longer have health care as a strength. The dreadful rollout of ObamaCare left the president with a 36% approval rating and a 59% disapproval rating for his handling of health care in a March 6 Fox News poll.

    Hmm. If only Democrats could get their base to the polls without the obstacles of modern poll taxes and jelly bean counts particularly in North Carolina, Wisconsin, and Michigan. http://www.ericbrewton.com
