Well, Duh… Voters Give Republicans 10 Point Edge Over Dems on Economy
Voters finally get it.
Obama tripled the deficit his first year with the failed Obama-Pelosi stimulus plan.
In Obama’s second year the deficit topped a trillion dollars again.
It was unprecedented.
This year the Obama deficit may reach $1.29 trillion. (The Captain’s Comments)
Barack Obama and Democrats also added over One Trillion Dollars to the Federal Budget in the last 4 years.
That’s at least a 30% increase in federal spending in just 3 years.
Obama has no intention of serious spending cuts. He still has no plan.
So it really comes as no surprise that US voters give Republicans a 10 point edge over democrats on the economy.
With lawmakers haggling over government debt and consumer confidence at a two-year low, voter confidence in Republicans to handle the economy is growing.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows that 45% trust Republicans more when it comes to handling economic issues, while 35% put more trust in Democrats. Nineteen percent (19% ) are undecided.
The gap was the closest in years in May when the GOP held just a 46% to 42% lead on the economy, which voters have consistently regarded as the most important of 10 issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports.
Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on nine of those 10 issues.
