Threes A Trend: Polls Show Voters Believe GOP Intentionally Stalling Economic Recovery

Brian Beutler

President Obama and the Democrats have succeeded at convincing voters that Republicans are trying to delay economic recovery, according to a series of recent polls.

<...>

Suffolk University polled registered voters in Florida and found that nearly half of voters, including large minorities of conservatives and Republicans, believed Republicans are intentionally stalling efforts to jump-start the economy to insure that Barack Obama is not re-elected?

On Monday, a nation-wide Washington Post/ABC News poll yielded similar results. The question in the Post/ABC poll was different...Once again, half of their respondents went with option one. But as Greg Sargent noted, thats because Republican voters overwhelmingly disagreed. By contrast, a healthy majority of moderates and independents agree with the economic sabotage premise.

Also on Monday, liberal blogger Markos Moulitsas publicized the top lines of a PPP poll he commissioned, which closely mimic the the Post/ABC survey: 50% think GOP intentionally stalling economy, incl 51% of Indies, & 15% of GOPers. Details Tuesday.

2. Alternative headline:
Threes A Trend: Polls Show Voters DON'T Believe GOP Intentionally Stalling Economic Recovery

All the polls were about 50/50.

4. No
"All the polls were about 50/50."

The first poll, for example, was 49/39.

7. Could this be why those 100 Congress Critters wrote a letter to the Debt Commission?
I heard an Idaho Republican on the radio earlier, and some seem willing to stop playing games and put revenues "on the table", mostly because they're scared shitless that their precious defense spending might be drastically cut.

I agree with Randi Rhodes, this was a stroke of genius by the White House. If these triggers kick in, defense is cut. However, if anyone who signed the Norquist pledge steps out of line, they're in big trouble.

12. One thing about the article I don't understand
Edited on Tue Nov-08-11 09:42 AM by Proud Liberal Dem
How can President Obama and the GOP be so close together on the issue of who is the better steward of the economy? I mean, if a lot of people believe that the GOP is intentionally sabotaging the economy, how can a sizable number of people believe that they are good stewards of the economy?
:wtf:
