Those who argue that we are in appreciable better economic conditions today than we were two years ago have a formidable task with not much chance of succeeding.

The 2010 election was an unmitigated disaster for the Democrats. Very few Americans alive today can remember the last time the Democrats had suffered such a humiliating defeat. The worst part of the 2010 election for Barack Obama is that, no matter how the Democrat-cheerleading media tries to spin it, the conditions that brought the hammer down on the Democrats two years ago are very much with us today.

Those who argue that we are in appreciable better economic conditions today than we were two years ago have a formidable task with not much chance of succeeding.

In 2010, voters were very discontent with the economy, which they considered to be the top issue as they went to the polls. People were frustrated, angry, and miserable then, and they see things very much the same way today. A recent Rasmussen survey found that 80% of likely voters think the economy is an important issue. This is more than any other issue.

An August 2012 Gallup survey of registered voters in the “swing states” of Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Wisconsin found that by 56/40, they do NOT think they are better off today than they were four years ago. In each one of those states, Republicans made gains ranging from solid to spectacular.

Gallup’s report came with a message that was a chilling warning for Democrats: “Swing-state voters’ assessments of their situation compared with 2008 have varied little since last fall” (meaning that if these numbers haven’t moved toward Barack Obama’s side by now, nothing short of a miracle will turn that 16 point deficit around.)

In 2010, 61% of voters felt that our nation was on the wrong track. Today, 58% feel we are on the wrong track. When they cast their ballots in 2010, people who saw the economy as weak and getting worse voted Republican 75/23. How much of an “improvement” for Obama that extra 3 points will provide is a mystery. Nevertheless, even in the unlikely event that there is a ten point improvement, 65/33 won’t be much help.

In view of all of this, the worst news possible has just been reported by Rasmussen. In a release posted yesterday, Rasmussen reported finding that by 53/25, likely voters see this election as a referendum on Obama’s policies.

Don’t believe these phony polls, especially from the so-called “swing states.”

The problem with Republicans is 1.) they don't understand that there actually ARE issues other than the economy such as civil rights, women's rights, the environment and education which Republicans are profoundly regressive on and 2.) just because the economy hasn't been perfect under Obama doesn't mean we will by default think the Republicans are to be preferred.

Jae, with Obama steering the ship into bankruptcy I can promise you that there's not a bright side to look on as long as Obama is in our White House. We, the people, sent a tsunami vote in November 2010 to take out the "Obama spenders" and replace them with republicans who campaigned on "No More Spending." They did their job. They shut Obama down. It needed to happen and it did.

Peter, all of the issues are important. I am strongly behind fiscal responsibility. I believe the unions need to get out of our schools and I believe marriage is between one man and one woman and I don't believe in late term abortions. In fact, I believe if any woman wants or needs an abortion she needs to pay for it herself. There are 82% of Americans who identify as Christians in our country. Now, you might not like that figure but it is fact and that information was gathered from census data. No one forced anyone to check the "Christian" box.

The economy? Under Obama we've had an unprecedented not one but two credit downgrades. Why is that? It is debt to income ratio driven meaning we don't have the revenue coming in to meet the debt we hold.

Obama should've never been elected in the first place. And a second term for him will further his vision of a socialist America....remember he taught The Cloward-Piven Strategy at Harvard. He believes in it. Obama needs his walking papers back to Chicago.
