Gallup: Bad news for Democrats in Congress
Posted by: McQ on Wednesday, November 14, 2007

The latest Gallup Poll deals specifically with the attitudes of Americans to how Democrats in Congress have been doing. The results, as you will see, are hardly comforting:
The latest Gallup Panel survey, conducted Oct. 25-28, 2007, asked Americans to say whether they are “pleased,” “neutral,” “disappointed,” or “angry” about the way the Democrats in Congress have been dealing with seven major issues confronting the nation.

Overall, relatively few Americans are pleased with the Democrats’ performance on any of them. This ranges from 7% for the federal budget deficit to 17% for terrorism. Between 12% and 26% say they are angry about the issues. However, most Americans fall in between, with the plurality generally saying they are disappointed with congressional Democrats’ performance on each.
You need to take a look at the whole poll, especially those of you who continue to discount immigration as a major issue in the '08 election. And look closely at the attitudes of independents for each of the issues polled.

Yea, that’s news. Democrats are as ineffective, lying, duplicitous, dishonest, worthless, wasted f*cks as are the Republicans.

Big news, that.

Well yeah...

Not surprisingly though, Republicans know this and Demcrats pretend otherwise...

Based on the poll, the message more or less remains the same: Democrats and independents are upset at the Dems in congress for not acting stronger against the war. You’re assuming that the entire low mark on immigration is anti-immigration sentiment. I don’t pretend that’s not the majority of it, but especially among Dems and independents there’s a non-trivial amount who are also upset a comprehensive plan like McCain-Kennedy didn’t pass.

you can please some of the people some of the time, but not all the people all of the time. Or you can be congress and please none of the people none of the time.

well capt joe, i’ve no doubt that oliver is correct (at least on the war part). I just don’t think he can know what percentage of the independents are disappointed for the same reason that dems are or the same reason the reps are.

Oliver - you’re assuming independents are upset they haven’t acted against the war.

Maybe we’re also upset that they’ve been so lame when they did act.
All show, no go.
All hat, no cattle.

Oliver, I urge you and your fellow travelers to keep your view on the immigration issue and what it means going strong. It’s gonna be a winner for the GOP

Or they are just as easily acting too strongly against the War.

There’s negative ratings there for both, but in a surprise twist of events you’re claiming them all for your view of things.
