    Democratic Party Image Drops to Record Low

    Americans' favorable rating of the Democratic Party dropped to 41% in a late March USA Today/Gallup poll, the lowest point in the 18-year history of this measure. Favorable impressions of the Republican Party are now at 42%, thus closing the gap between the two parties' images that has prevailed for the past four years.

    So far, however, the bitter battle over the health-care law appears to have weakened the standing of the Democrats, at least according to a recent CBS poll. The party was already faring poorly in the polls because of the weak economy and a high unemployment rate.

    Huh - people don't like having major legislation rammed down their throats. Who would have thunk it? The Dems still have a way to go before they're in the Historic Repub range, but they're well below their previous low and are now tied with a party that had hit rock bottom just a few months ago.

    With all the broken promises and politics-as-usual, independents aren't seeing the type of change they had envisioned:

    Poll: Angriest electorate in decades - Josh Kraushaar - POLITICO.com
    The upcoming midterm elections will feature the angriest electorate in at least two decades, according to a new Gallup Poll, an ominous sign for the Democratic Party as it attempts to retain control of Congress.

    The poll shows that only 49 percent of voters would vote to reelect their own member of Congress, with 40 percent saying they don’t deserve to be reelected. Those are the worst numbers for incumbents in the 18 years that Gallup has asked that question including the period prior to the historic 1994 Republican sweep, and the 2006 midterms when Democrats regained control of Congress.

    A whopping 65 percent of respondents also said that most members of Congress, in general, don’t deserve to be reelected — by far the highest number in the last 18 years.


    There are several months until the election, but this is very bad news for Democrats.

    Wait until 2012 though This just shows that America is unhappy with a Dem majority and it's going to end at the next chance it gets. Who knows, maybe the Dems will lose more in the Senate our House than expected. As it seems most of the important recent races have been won by Republicans in very liberal states (MA electing Brown, NJ electing Christie, and so on).

    2012? When the economy should be in good shape? I would not get too confident about 2012.

    You haven't by chance noticed the increase in oil prices lately? Think they will drop soon?
