The major one would be obama, dragging down his party, like a pair of lead sneakers.

Dem Poll: Obama Dragging Down His Own Party - Hotline On Call

Quote:
One of the Democratic party's leading pollsters released a survey of 60 Republican-held battleground districts today painting an ominous picture for Congressional Democrats in 2012. The poll shows Democratic House candidates faring worse than they did in the 2010 midterms, being dragged down by an unpopular president who would lose to both Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Mitt Romney.
Holy moly! Worse than 2010, in which the Red Wave brought an historic election to this country? You mean the wave hasn't crested yet? You mean all that garbage from the media/Left about the GOP on the skids is not true?

Quote:
President Obama's job approval rating in the battleground districts is just 41 percent, and only inches up to 43 percent in the 30 more-competitive seats that are a little more Democratic.
Wonderful news.

This poll is abysmal - another ominous sign for obama.

Quote:
According to this McClatchy-Marist Poll, the president’s approval rating is at 39% among registered voters nationally, an all-time low for Mr. Obama.
For the first time, his "favorability" is underwater. This isn't job approval, but his number on likeability, which has always been above water.

This poll was conducted just a few days after his "jobs" speech.

Oh, but the absolutely BEST part of this poll - the 8 point advantage given to democrats. Can we imagine what the numbers would be with the RIGHT party id?

You lived through 8 years of Repugs reaking havoc on our economy... and you are dense enough to think they will do something different if elected? I don't remotely understand the logic of the right. they complain about high spending as if Obama is the cause of that. reagan bush / made the deficit jump from under 1T to over 3.5T, clinton held it constant, bush increased it from 3.5-10.5T.... So where do you actually think a repug has the ability or desire to decrease spending?

They never do it, and never will.

Preach it comrade worker!

Times are much better under Chairman Obama and the Peoples Proletariat but peoples don't get it.

These are numbers from the Ministry of Truth.

Year Unemployment
2001 4.76% Booosh
2002 5.78% Booosh
2003 5.99% Booosh
2004 5.53% Booosh
2005 5.08% Booosh
2006 4.63% Booosh
2007 4.61% Booosh
2008 5.76% Booosh
2009 9.26% Obama
2010 9.64% Obama

Who would want to return to 2006 and 2007 with unemployment below 5%?

I know I wouldn't. It was awful times where you could just go out and get a job.

The "angry black guy" class warfare act may shore up obama's base, but it doesn't play so well with Congressional dems. The "blue dogs" know they're toast if they don't run away from him as fast and as far as they can...

You can't explain it to these nitwits. They live in a bubble where they are extremely brainwashed to believe "their party is better". I typically try to be nice to people, but I am sick fo these hypocritical morons that were waiving their flags for trillions worth of debt 10 years ago and now are upset waiving their flag again. I am sick of both parties, but I am very very sick of the nitwits of this country that just spout words like "comrad, socialist, etc" that they learned in their 9th grade history class.

Fun numbers there... I take it you picked the January unemployment numbers as if somehow Obama is responsible for the unemployment numbers in January 2009?

Since we can reasonably conclude that both Democrats and Republicans have played large parts in the decline of this country...why are people still voting for either of them? "Lesser of two evils?" Guess what, you're still voting for evil, rather than having the balls to vote for someone based on their record. It's this sick sort of sports team mentality that people apply to politics...dissing the other team while ignoring your own team's faults...that is a big part of the problem.

Yes, the lesser of two evils is at play. But liberalism has always been a failing ideology. It will continue to die a slow death now that the United States is in a state of financial disrepair. Liberalism cannot thrive without handouts.

Sorry for your luck.
