Voters blame GOP for current economic woes

If this polling holds through November it’s going to be a bloodbath for the GOP. Anyone who thinks this mess, and the Bush 43 regime’s ridiculous brand of corporate socialism, is going away anytime soon is deluded. My guess it’s just the tip of a very large iceberg.

From the link:

A new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation Poll suggests that by a 2-to-1 margin, Americans blame Republicans over Democrats for the financial crisis that has swept across the country the past few weeks — one factor that may have contributed to an apparent increase in Barack Obama’s edge over John McCain in the race for the White House.

In the new survey, released Monday afternoon, 47 percent of registered voters questioned say Republicans are more responsible for the problems currently facing financial institutions and the stock market, with 24 percent saying Democrats are more responsible. One in five of those polled blame both parties equally, and 8 percent say neither party is to blame.

The gap widens

And according to this Wall Street Journal article, leading Democrats are beginning to line up behind Obama to further pressure Clinton to end her quixotic quest. Upcoming endorsements expected for Obama include Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and all seven of North Carolina’s House members before that election.

(Update on North Carolina: Maybe not on that group endorsement.)

From the first link:

PRINCETON, NJ — Barack Obama has extended his lead over Hillary Clinton among Democrats nationally to 52% to 42%, the third consecutive Gallup Poll Daily trackingreport in which he has held a statistically significant lead, and Obama’s largest lead of the year so far.

Clinton should be shaking in her boots. Looks like Obama’s more than in the hunt.
