A couple of caveats here. One: People have to stay engaged, energized and have to make sure they are registered to vote in November (and they have to get out and vote). Two: We are still three months out and a lot can happen. But it is looking very, very, very grim for Obama and his enablers in the next election.
With less than 100 days until the midterm elections, American voters would give the edge to Republicans by an 11 percentage-point margin if the Congressional election were today. Yet a majority doesn’t think a Republican takeover of Congress would lead to positive change.
A Fox News poll released Thursday finds that if Americans were heading to the voting booth today, they would back the Republican candidate in their district over the Democrat by 47-36 percent. Two weeks ago the Republicans had a slimmer 4-point advantage (41-37 percent).
As has been the case all year, Republicans continue to be more interested in the upcoming election. Thirty-six percent of Republicans are “extremely” interested compared to 23 percent of Democrats.
Do go read it all. There is no – literally no – good news in this poll. The only glimmer of a minor spark of brightness is that Obama is supposedly somewhat favorable on the question of race relations. This poll was, of course, taken before Obama appeared on The View and called African-Americans “mongrels”.
When asked about his background, which includes a black father and white mother, Obama said of African-Americans: “We are sort of a mongrel people.”
“I mean we’re all kinds of mixed up,” Obama said. “That’s actually true of white people as well, but we just know more about it.”
Third world tin-pot dictators and klansmen use words like that to describe Americans regardless of race. The president of the United States does not.
Or rather, a presidential president does not. A teleprompterless ego who has led his party into the valley of the Little Bighorn does.
By the way, the vast majority of the MSM is studiously ignoring Obama’s choice of words as of this writing. There’s your evidence of biased journalism.
