Americans Favor Obama Over GOP on Most Issues

Americans Favor Obama Over GOP on Most Issues


A new USA Today/Pew Research poll finds President Obama "starts his second term with a clear upper hand over GOP leaders on issues from guns to immigration that are likely to dominate the year. On the legislation rated most urgent -- cutting the budget deficit -- even a majority of Republican voters endorse Obama's approach of seeking tax hikes as well as spending cuts."

"The survey underscores the quandary for the GOP as it debates the party's message in the wake of disappointing losses last November for the White House and in the Senate."

Key finding: "Now just 22% of Americans, nearly a record low, consider themselves Republicans."

These results mirror a Bloomberg poll released last night.

but what exactly ARE the issues that Americans actually favor the GOP on?
