More bad news for Barry and the Dems

From Gary Bauer:

Barack Obama may have thought he had a mandate to "fundamentally transform America," but he was wrong. More than 100 polls clearly demonstrated the public’s opposition to ObamaCare. But supremely confident in Big Government, the liberal Democrats were blinded by their own arrogance and ignored them all.

It’s hard to trust someone or something that blatantly ignores you and does the exact opposite of what you want, which is precisely what the Democrats did in passing ObamaCare. So, it’s not surprising to me that a new Pew Research Center poll finds that nearly 80% of Americans do not trust Big Government. Pew summarized the poll’s results by stating, "Rather than an activist government to deal with the nation’s top problems, the public now wants government reformed and growing numbers want its power curtailed." This must come as a shock to Obama, Reid and Pelosi.

Just how bad is the political environment for Democrats these days? Independent political handicappers are predicting big trouble for the Democrats. New data suggest 60 to 70 Democrat-held seats may be in the "toss up" column, while fewer than a dozen GOP seats are at risk. That’s not to suggest that the GOP will win every competitive race and pick up 60 seats. But the Democrats are clearly playing defense in large measure because the American people do not share their love of Big Government.
