    Voters Trust Republicans More On 10 Top Issues


    Friday, October 23, 2009

    For the first time in recent years, voters trust Republicans more than Democrats on all 10 key electoral issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports. The GOP holds double-digit advantages on five of them.

    Republicans have nearly doubled their lead over Democrats on economic issues to 49% to 35%, after leading by eight points in September.

    The GOP also holds a 54% to 31% advantage on national security issues and a 50% to 31% lead on the handling of the war in Iraq.

    But voters are less sure which party they trust more to handle government ethics and corruption, an issue that passed the economy in voter importance last month. Thirty-three percent (33%) trust Republicans more while 29% have more confidence in Democrats. Another 38% are undecided. Last month, the parties were virtually tied on the issue.

    Unfortunately, it's by default, as a product of the democratics being such incompetent nincompoops.

    They love them so much that they wanted them to take an extended vacation from the Presidency, and leading the Senate and the House.

    Yeah, it wasn't a CNN poll you could "freep" so it doesn't matter right?

    Most other polls are dreamed up to build "news" stories around.

    Much as you may dislike them, Rasmussen is only in the polling business. Moreover, Fordham University found them the most accurate pollster out there LINK and fivethirtyeight.com had them #3, behind some pollsters nobody has ever heard of LINK.

    Going to impugn them too?

    It is remarkable to see Republicans leading in some of those categories - education, health care and ABORTION?

    Good Lord that has to have the Dems scratching their collective noggins!
