He’s succeeded in the almost impossible task of making incompetent, unprincipled Republican politicians more popular than their Democratic counterparts.
For the first time in recent years, voters trust Republicans more than Democrats on all 10 key electoral issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports. The GOP holds double-digit advantages on five of them.
Republicans have nearly doubled their lead over Democrats on economic issues to 49% to 35%, after leading by eight points in September.
The GOP also holds a 54% to 31% advantage on national security issues and a 50% to 31% lead on the handling of the war in Iraq.
And that’s just after nine months. Give the president a couple of years and see what happens!
