Why the GOP shouldn’t be counting chickens just yet

| September 1, 2009

While many recent poll numbers are looking better and better for the Republicans, here’s a wake-up call from Rasmussen:

Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republican voters say their party’s representatives in Congress have lost touch with GOP voters nationwide over the past several years. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 18% of GOP voters believe their elected officials have done a good job representing the base.

As the poll indicates, the Republican Congress largely blew it after the 2002 and 2004 elections, resulting in large Democratic gains in 2006 and 2008.  Even with the sinking poll numbers for Pres. Obama and the Democratic Congress, GOP candidates are going to have to provide both Republican and independent voters with some real reasons to vote for them in 2010. I can’t say that I’ve seen much out of GOP congressional leaders to date that points in that direction.  ..bruce w..
