Editor’s Note – The thrill is gone, not to mention the tingle Chris Matthews felt running up his leg!
Americans have seen first hand, and are flatly rejecting Obama’s big government, tax and spend agenda. It is abundantly clear that the promise of ‘hope and change’ was all but a ruse.
Which is very unfortunate to all those Democrats who jumped on the Obama bandwagon. In politics, there is a hefty price you pay when you align yourself with failure.
Poll: Barack Obama a Drag for Florida Dems
President Barack Obama’s swing through Maimi raised funds for his party on Monday but, according to a new Sunshine State News Poll, his policies raise deep distrust among Floridians and threaten to drag Democratic candidates down.
“His 39/54 job approval is a harbinger of what’s coming in November, which is to say a swing back to the GOP,” predicted pollster Jim Lee.
“Given that Obama’s job approval in Florida is actually worse than his nationwide average (45/48, according to realclearpolitics.com), it demonstrates that the political environment has really soured in Florida for the Democrats,” said Lee, president of Voter Survey Service, which was commissioned by Sunshine State News to conduct the poll Oct. 6-10.
Republicans sought to capitalize on the president’s visit Monday by suggesting that his mere presence energizes voters — against him.
Sen. George LeMieux, R-Fla., said, “The (Democrats) will raise money, but fire things up for Republicans and independents. People are very upset with the course of this country.”
“Obama will boost Republican turnout,” LeMieux forecast.
