    A decided shift in public sentiment on a number of key issues is underway, with Republicans now gaining clear advantages on such areas as the economy, taxes, Iraq, national security, immigration, and overall government ethics.

    Regarding the economy, 45% polled indicated trusting the Republicans more than the Democrats, who came in at 39%.

    On the issue of taxes, the disparity was almost as great, with Republicans garnering 44% to the Democrats 39%.

    On national security, the Republicans are at an even greater advantage, with 51% vs 36% for Democrats.

    Of course, even as public sentiment appears to be shifting toward Republicans heading into the 2010 midterm elections, whether or not the Republican Party can actually organize effectively and take advantage of this shift is uncertain...

    You all hung your hats on Rasmussen last year as well. Another major disappointment for Repubs in 2010 on the way.

    Despite their concerns, the American public isn’t blaming Obama for some of the current problems he’s facing. Asked who was more responsible for the size of the deficit, 46 percent cited the Bush administration, 21 percent said the Democrats in Congress, 7 percent said the Republicans in Congress and just 6 percent said the Obama administration.

    In addition, 72 percent believe that the current state of the economy is something Obama inherited rather than created.

    Even though the public remains pessimistic about the economy — just 12 percent say they are satisfied with it — the poll does show a bit of optimism with 46 percent expecting the economy to improve in the next year.

    That’s up eight points since April, and it’s the highest percentage on that particular question since January 2004.

    Gotta love Rasmussen. His polls ALWAYS show opposite results from all the other MAJOR polling organizations, like this one, showing Republican favorability down to 26%--the lowest in history.

    Scott Rasmussen isn't seen as a credible polster. He is a conservative evangelical, and uses his own weird methodology, meaning he polls in heavily Republican districts.
