"Rasmussen and the quietly rusting Democratic advantage"

Check this out:

As you can see, back in October it was fairly clear that Democrats were enjoying consistent leads over Republicans when it came to how much the public trusted them on various issues. It’s also fairly clear that in most cases, those leads have been savaged. Leading in four categories and tied in one may not sound wonderful; but compared to zero-for-ten that’s not half bad - particularly since it’s looking as if the Democrats are in the process of thoroughly squandering their existing trustworthiness with regard to the economy. The only real disappointment is the government trust numbers (which were much better last month**), but that’s the next project.

What does it mean? Not much, except of course as a helpful reminder that the people who are currently eager to tell you that we’re doomed as a party are not necessarily working from completely accurate data. Hardly surprising: most of those people don’t have your best interests at heart. Or any of your interests at heart, really.

The fact that Democrats are robustly tanking in public opinion polls -- just four months into our messianic president's term -- should tell you something. What it should tell you is this:

Don't bet on Democrats to have a "good day" on 2 November 2010.

Come see me on 3 November, 2010, and tell me I was wrong ...!!!
