Boucin' back!

From the Campaign for Working Families PAC:

Two new polls by respected pollster Scott Rasmussen indicate that voters are growing increasingly disgusted with the Democrats and turning more and more to the Republican Party.

The first Rasmussen poll indicates that voter support for the Democrats on economic issues has been eroded by the trillion-dollar spending bill written by Nancy Pelosi and pushed so hard by Barack Obama. According to Rasmussen, after the November election, Democrats held a 15-point advantage over the GOP on economic issues.

As Democrats began publicly to discuss their plans for the economy, their support slipped to a nine-point lead over the GOP just before Obama’s inauguration three weeks ago. Now, as the Democrat-dominated Congress stands on the verge of passing Obama’s trillion-dollar spending bill, the public’s support for the Democrats on economic issues has taken another hit, down to just five points over the GOP.

Clearly, Republicans still have some ground to make up in regaining voters’ trust. But as Obama and the Democrats have championed this trillion-dollar bailout of Big Government, support for their economic ideas has cratered, falling 10 points since the election.

And here’s more good news. If congressional elections were held today, Rasmussen found voters essentially split in their support between the two parties, with Democrats earning 40% support and Republicans attracting 39%. Just four weeks ago, Democrats held a seven-point advantage in the same poll, 42%-to-35%. Today, Democrats are down and Republicans are on the rise!

Something else that I want Creeder Readers to keep in mind:

Rep. Heath Shuler (D-North Carolina) is one of a dozen or so pro-life/pro-gun Democrats who were elected in Republican districts in 2006. Speaking at an economic forum in Raleigh over the weekend, Shuler said the stimulus bill "has to be done in a bipartisan way." Since it ain't, been done in a bipartisan way, Shuler added, "I truly feel that’s where maybe House leadership and Senate leadership have really failed."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was quick to admonish Shuler. Quoth Reid: "Let me get this straight - this is coming from a guy who threw more than twice as many interceptions than touchdowns?"

Mr. Reid seems to have forgotten that hundreds of elected officials - from county sheriffs to U.S. Reps and U.S. Senators - switched Democrat to Republican during the two years, 1993-94, when President Bill Clinton promoted and pursued a hyper-liberal agenda. If he keeps pounding folks like Heath Shuler, especially if - nay, when - Obama's polls start making George W. Bush look like an über-popular president, folks like Shuler will have to cross the political aisle ... if'n they want to keep their jobs.
