For Republicans, the last 10 days have felt like falling down a darkened elevator shaft: You want to hit bottom, but wonder about the odds of survival.
In what has become an almost daily occurrence, Thursday night brought another poll showing the damage the party has suffered as a result of the government shutdown. A new NBC News/Wall street Journal poll found that the partyís popularity had dropped and Americans were far more likely to blame them for the goings-on in Washington than their Democratic opponents.
--Only 24% of Americans had a favorable view of Republicans, the lowest figure in the pollís multi-year history and four percentage points lower than last month. Another low: only 21% had a favorable view of the tea party.
--President Obamaís standing was relatively stable, the pollsters said, moving from 45% favorable last month to 47% now, within the pollís margin of error of 3.5 points. Democrats overall were at 39% positive, with congressional Democrats at 36%.
--70% of Americans said Republicans were putting politics ahead of what was best for the country. A lesser 51% said that about Obama.
The gap seems to have grown a bit as for blame between the Republicans and the Democrats. What should stand out is this is also hurting the president as the last sentence above states. Okay, we know about 70% who think Republicans are putting politics over country, but now a majority of Americans think the president is doing the same thing. Granted 51% is way behind the 70% mark. But folks, it can't be good for the president to be seen as one who puts politics over country.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
This is like a man standing on the shore next to a life raft watching another man drown. You ask the man standing on the shore, "Why are you letting the other man drown? Do you want him to drown". And the first man says' I'm not letting him drown, it's simply not my responsibility to throw the life raft.
He may not have used those exact words, but there is absolutely no other explanation for what Ron Paul said. There are uninsured people that need medicine or they'll die. There are only three possible choices. 1) All of the insured people pay more to cover the uninsured (the previous system), 2). Everyone pays and everyone is insured, 3). We let them die.
Ron Paul wants #3. Own it. Don't pretend you don't believe something because it's not a political winner.
