A Conservative awakening?

We can only hope ...

From the Campaign for Working Families PAC:

Pollster Scott Rasmussen reports that for the third week in a row Republicans are leading in the generic ballot test for control of Congress in 2010. It’s also worth noting that President Obama’s approval index (the difference between those who strongly approve and those who strongly disapprove) remains in negative territory at -7.

In the past, his approval index has gone negative, but quickly improved. That is not happening now. In fact, Rasmussen’s daily tracking poll has placed Obama’s approval index in the negative digits for the past two weeks. Moreover, for the first time ever, the percentage of voters strongly approving of Obama’s performance fell below 30% on July 12th and has remained below that threshold every day since.

Confronted by the most leftwing administration and Congress in generations, a political force that has produced a foreign policy build on appeasement, a "cap and trade" energy tax and a socialized healthcare plan, it is encouraging to see that America may be on the cusp of a new conservative awakening. The "Carter malaise" gave us Ronald Reagan. Who knows what 2012 may bring. But first we must liberate Capitol Hill from the Obama/Reid/Pelosi "axis of liberalism" next year and restore commonsense to Congress!
