A new Washington Post/ABC News poll is signaling that the Republican Party’s resurgence is gaining strength as a growing number of Americans seem to think conservatives may be better at managing the economy than President Barack Obama and the Democrats.Yeah loons, keep pushing health care "reform" instead of jobs and please, please, please keep blaming Bush instead of the current guy, his inept administration and the ass-backwards clowns in the Democratic-owned Congress he runs. Please keep it up, clearly the American public is buying it.
The poll of 1,004 adults nationwide shows Republicans have narrowed the gap with the Democrats when it comes to who voters trust more to deal with the country’s problems. This shift erodes one of what had been Obama’s major political advantages.
Last summer, Obama enjoyed a 20-point advantage over congressional Republicans when it came to who the public thought would be more trustworthy when it comes to handling the economy, healthcare, the deficit and terrorism.
But that advantage has since evaporated. Although Obama’s overall job approval rating comes in at 51 percent, a majority of Americans now disapprove of the way the president has handled these same issues.
