NBC/WSJ Poll Shows Americans Don’t Trust Democrat Policies, Are Turning To GOP Instead

A new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll out today confirms once more that Americans disagree with key aspects of the Democrats’ agenda and instead prefer Republicans.

The poll found that respondents believe the government’s number-one priority should be “job creation and economic growth.” But they don’t believe the $862 billion stimulus is meeting that need or will meet it in the future. For the first time in this poll, more respondents, 42%, said the stimulus bill “will not” help the economy than say it has (18%) or it will (20%) help the economy, combined.

Residents of Buffalo, NY, where President Obama is going to have yet another rally to promote his economic plans, are apparently frustrated enough with the economy to greet the president with a billboard reading, “I need a freakin job.”

And what of President Obama’s signature health care law that was jammed through Congress on party-line votes? The Wall Street Journal writes today, “[D]espite White House predictions that passage of Mr. Obama’s health-care bill would boost Democrats in November, the issue still appeared to be more of a drag on the president’s party. Some 44% called the health plan a bad idea, compared to 38% who saw it as a good idea.” Asked about the effect of the Democrat health care law on the quality of their own health care, 36% of respondents said it would actually decrease that quality, and another 37% felt it would stay the same. Only 17% thought their quality of care would get better, the lowest number in this poll since last April.

It’s little wonder that voters remain so sour on the $2.6 trillion health care law, given weeks of press reports and government studies showing that it won’t live up to Democrats’ promises to reduce the deficit, lower premiums, or allow everyone who likes their plan to keep it.

Considering all that, it certainly makes sense that, as the WSJ points out, “Nearly one-third of respondents said they ‘almost never’ trust the government in Washington to do what is right—about triple the number who felt that way when the question was asked in October.”

It’s clear that voters will be looking to Republicans in November thanks to Democrats’ misguided policies. Indeed, The Journal notes, “nearly two-thirds [in the survey] said they were motivated by opposition to Mr. Obama and Democratic policies.”

Further, “[t]he voters who said they were most interested in the November elections favor Republican control of Congress by a 20-point margin, with 56% backing the GOP and 36% backing Democrats—the highest gap all year on that question.”

    Americans Don�t Trust Obama

    How could Americans trust Obama. Obama lies repeatedly to their face, perhaps pathologically; duped Democrats to elect him President�then wrecked their Party, ordering Democrats to support suicide economic policies, spending trillions of tax dollars on senseless economic/public programs destined to bankrupt America; while Obama was endeared by his constituency of Socialists/Marxists. Obama has done more damaged to our national and economic security than any known spy working for a foreign Government. Because Obama has little understanding of economics, endemic of leftists, it is not surprisingly Obama�s only solution to the economic crisis, is to keep borrowing and spending until everything collapses. Despite Obama�s poor performance as president, Obama�s latest poll has leveled off at 45%, the same percentage of Americans that pay no taxes.

    Is it a mistake for Americans to believe Obama represents the United States? If Obama is an extreme leftist, America is in trouble. Historically extreme leftists support a Marxist ideology�that mandates crushing democracies and individualism, forcing socialism or communism on Citizens�even if that means destroying their economy and certainly their Constitution. If you look at Obama�s past life, it is apparent he has associated with Communist/Marxist groups and like individuals. Many Americans believe Obama�s allegiance is first to a leftist ideology, not to America. At a time in history when Americans needed a great President, they got their worst nightmare.

    Openly some in the Obama Government admit they support dismantling capitalism. Whether or not their endgame entails destruction of the United States, dismantling capitalism will cause the majority of Americans to become unemployed, many forever.

    When Americans voice their objections to the direction Obama is taking their country, Obama response is to propose laws to arrest Americans with no probable cause or evidence see Sound-Video: and support gag legislation such as the Disclose Act. Obama�s Neomarxists intend to drown out your voice, the voice of America with Obama propaganda, enforcing new regulations that will cripple bloggers and other alternative media disseminating information, free speech that grass-roots among other organizations and Citizens depend on to make informed decisions. How dare this person who calls himself President act to curtail Americans� right to know, restrict American�s right to communicate via the Internet or other medium. Obama�s leftists if permitted, will brainwash your Children before they gain prospective what life is about, with Obama�s one-sided propaganda at school, through Obama controlled Radio, TV and Obama media policies that will restrict the flow of information. Historically when leftists have attempted or taken over a country, their first step is to control the media and all forms of public communications to control Civilian populations.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
