    What was once a foundational Democrat Party issue is now evenly divided between both major political parties.

    Republican are now tied with Democrats in public perception of who can be trusted to handle the healthcare issue the best.

    If Republicans overtake the healthcare issue, they will have voter approval to handle eight of ten current issues of importance to Americans, including taxes, the economy, and security.

    wow thats surprising. I guess with the dems being in charge of the legislature for the last 3 years and now having the white house for 8 months people are putting the responsibility on them for the bad stuff going on as a result of government.

    That would be a nice change of pace eh? Actual accountability for the inept Democrat Congress and equally inept Democrat White House...

    Yes i think the people are paying attention more than the democrats want. They didn't realize the seeds they were sowing while using the MSM to bash bush for so long.....now the chickens are coming home to roost and the dems dont like it one bit.


    You cant just turn off our attention now that you're in charge guys, you go the country to pay attention to politics now deal with it.


    I still hope a 3rd party appears and becomes viable....so we can vote out the hypocritical republicans and democrats and get a real representative party.

    Try and convince the two ensconced parties to comply? I don't see it happening short of armed revolt.

    It is possible, but we need to get whatever third party that solidifies to do the one thing we have been avoiding for a long time, track their voters. At least for the first time, get everyone who is sick of the bipartisan shit to select one candidate that we can all agree on enough to get through one term, vote for them (no changing your mind at the polls) and then if they do get the majority and still don't get in (not relying on exit polling but an actual database) then nothing short of an armed revolution would stop them. However, if we can get just one in for one term, maybe, just maybe, the politicians on the two powerhouses will start actually listening to the voters and working toward fulfilling campaign promises.

    It was only a question of time before folks woke up to the inadequacies of Democrats. The only way a clown like Bush became President is because his competition were Democrats. And now, here we are.

    You actually still believe there is a difference between the parties on the level of politicians? Wake up please. ;)

    The problem is, is that no-one seems to bring this up until their preferred party is out of power.

    Most of the people that are espousing a major third paty on this board, for instance, were not saying the same thing 3 years ago.

    And certainly the only time I hear anything about an "Armed Revolution" being a solution at all is when a person's preferred party recently lost an election.

    Putting aside the partisanship of Rasmussen, FoxNews' numbers department...

    According to your own link, the numbers have IMPROVED for the Democrats in the past month, by 3 points.
