    Re: GOP Govs' popularity plummets

    here's some numbers for ya, more empirical than polls

    from today's usatoday:

    Nearly two years after the economic recovery officially began, job creation continues to stagger at the slowest post-recession rate since the Great Depression.

    The nation has 5% fewer jobs today — a loss of 7 million — than it did when the recession began in December 2007. That is by far the worst performance of job generation following any of the dozen recessions since the 1930s.

    In the past, the economy recovered lost jobs 13 months on average after a recession. If this were a typical recovery, nearly 10 million more people would be working today than when the recession officially ended in June 2009.

    how long to make back those lost 7 mil, at this rate?

    seeya at the polls, progressives

    but hey, whatever floats your boat. we'll see either way in 2012.

    The PPP poll that was sited only polled 500 people.

    I wouldn’t hang my hat on any poll of a state the size of Florida where only 500 were polled.

    Just my humble opinion.

    Rick Snyder here in Michigan has fallen even farther than most of the other GOP guvs.

    Public Policy Polling: Snyder quickly falls out of favor

    His predecessor, Granholm, did not fall that far in her first seven years in office as he has fallen in just a few short months. Snyder won the election in November by over 18 points but would lose today against the same fellow he trounced at that time.

    People do not support the radical right wing agenda that has been imposed upon them.

    A sleeping giant has been awakened.
