    49 percent of respondents to the poll say that Republicans are intentionally stalling the economy, compared to 40 percent who say they are not. 11 percent replied “not sure.”

    Among independents, 50 percent said that Republicans are stalling the recovery compared to 40 percent who said they are not, and 61 percent of self-described moderates said they are compared to just 40 percent who said they are not.

    Former Florida Governor, son of George H.W. Bush, and brother of President George W. Bush is calling for a more moderate Republican Party. Bush said President Ronald Reagan "would be criticised today for the things he did. He added "My Dad and Reagan sacrificed political poinbts for good public policy." He said today's party has an "orthodoxy that doesn’t allow for disagreement.”

    If Republicans continue to block every jobs bill put forth by the President, voters will begin to see that they are more interested in power than helping the economy. When the House of Representatives refuses to pass a highway bill even after it passed the Senate by a 74% majority, it will give voters pause.

    As time goes by, it will become clearer to the American people that Republicans are putting power over the good of the American people. Americans want jobs, Republicans want to police women's bodies and add discrimination to the constitution.

    In addition to blaming Republicans for sabotaging the economy, only 34 percent have a favorable opinion of the GOP, compared to 55 percent who view the party unfavorably. In comparison, 44 percent view the Democratic Party favorably while 45 percent have an unfavorable opinion. Democrats may not have an overwhelming endorsement, but their favorability beats the GOP. That could spell trouble for the GOP keeping the House

    Hey Dean............knock yourself out trying to change the course of the electorate from this little corner of political irrelevancy. Im interested to see how many posts between now and November you will rack up......but dont worry, I'll keep and eye on it. Im sure you will be falling all over yourself with the efforts.


    Do me a favor though.........on election night, dont be crying in your beer and going home to spend the night doing the gorgan poke of the cat. Have the balls to show up here and get the salt rubbed in the wound for a few hours!!

    All the poll means is that 40% of liberals don't believe Repubs are sabotaging the economy and 11% of them aren't sure. I would have thought more Dems blamed Repubs, but guess not.

    Did the OP think we'd take a Daily KO/SEIU poll seriously?
