    AP-GfK polls show Obama losing independents

    WASHINGTON – Independents who embraced President Barack Obama's call for change in 2008 are ready for a shift again, and that's worrisome news for Democrats.

    Only 32 percent of those citing no allegiance to either major party say they want Democrats to keep control of Congress in this November's elections, according to combined results of recent Associated Press-GfK polls. That's way down from the 52 percent of independents who backed Obama over Republican Sen. John McCain two years ago, and the 49 percent to 41 percent edge by which they preferred Democratic candidates for the House in that election, according to exit polls of voters.

    Independents voice especially strong concerns about the economy, with 9 in 10 calling it a top problem and no other issue coming close, the analysis of the AP-GfK polls shows. While Democrats and Republicans rank the economy the No. 1 problem in similar numbers, they are nearly as worried about their No. 2 issues, health care for Democrats and terrorism for Republicans.

    Obama came in promising stuff. He has failed to deliver. The Dums have failed to deliver on their promises to take over Congress.
    People don't care whose fault it is. They blame the party in power, and currently that is the Democrats. The Dems are out of touch, unconcerned with what people are going through. They are: The Party of Fuck You.

    The dems are trying push through short term solutions with minimal gain at a very high cost, in hopes of winning re election.

    As long as people keep on preaching racism it's never going to go away.
