I’m not a big polling cheerleader but here goes, as per Rasmussen:
Voters now trust Republicans more than Democrats on all 10 of the important issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports.
The GOP has consistently been trusted on most issues for months now, but in July they held the lead on only nine of the key issues.
Republicans lead Democrats 47% to 39% on the economy, which remains the most important issue to voters. Those numbers are nearly identical to those found in June. Republicans have held the advantage on the economy since May of last year.
But for the first time in months, Republicans now hold a slight edge on the issues of government ethics and corruption, 40% to 38%. Voters have been mostly undecided for the past several months on which party to trust more on this issue, but Democrats have held small leads since February. Still, more than one-in-five voters (22%) are still not sure which party to trust more on ethics issues.
Wow. A two point lead on the ethics issue. This certainly isn’t 2006 anymore.
Not to be a wet blanket, but it’s a byproduct of the two-party system that voters are turning to the Republicans. Polls still show that the Republicans along with Democrats, are still held in complete disregard.
But voters are appearing to realize that corrupt, Democrats with pocket-book power, running wild in Washington D.C., is not in their best interests.
