    Political Party Affiliation Now Tied – 11 Point Swing Towards GOP

    Political party affiliation has dramtically shifted away from the Democrats in this latest Gallup Poll.

    The question:

    In politics, as of today, do you consider yourself a Republican, a Democrat, or an independent? (Asked of independents: As of today, do you lean more to the Democratic Party or the Republican Party?


    Quite an interesting trend if this poll is not an outlier. Interestingly, the same thing happened after Bill Clinton was elected President. In 1994, the first election after Clinton’s 1992 election, the GOP captured the House majority for the first time in over 40 years.

    Is the reason that American voters prefer divided government with no one party in complete control or has there been a Democrat, Obama overload?

    Or just bad data.

    You be the judge. But it does offer the GOP some hope.

    Stay tuned……

    Poll Watch: Republicans Say GOP is Leaderless – NOT Rush Limbaugh

    rush limbaugh enough

    In the March 16 issue of Newsweek (on newsstands Monday, March 9): ‘Enough! A Conservative’s Case Against Limbaugh’ David Frum examines Rush Limbaugh’s impact on the GOP and what conservatives need to do to assure people that Rush is not the voice of the party

    Who is in charge of the national Republican Party?

    • Rush Limbaugh?
    • John McCain?
    • Sarah Palin?
    • Michael Steele?

    Not so much……

    Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Republican voters say their party has no clear leader, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey. Another 17% are undecided.

    Just five percent (5%) view either John McCain, the GOP’s unsuccessful 2008 presidential candidate, or new party chairman Michael Steele as the party’s leader.

    Two percent (2%) see conservative radio commentator Rush Limbaugh in that role, and one percent (1%) name McCain’s running mate, Alaska Govenror Sarah Palin. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Minority Leader John Boehner are each seen as GOP leader by less than one-half of one percent.

    This is as expected from a party that is out of power and coming off a Goerge W. Bush Presidency.

    The Operation Limbaugh project enigineered in the Obama White House has been a failure and merely a distraction to a country seeking Presidential leadership, particularly on the economy.

    As for David Frum, he does NOT speak for this conservative and by many political pundits is no longer considered a conservative because of his moderate to liberal views on the issues. Newsweek and the Washington Post who owns Newsweek needs to move along to another FAUX-conservative.
