SO HOW’S THAT WORKING OUT FOR YOU GUYS?….Lockstep opposition to all things Obama isn’t working out too well for the GOP according to recent polling done by Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg. CQ’s Balance of Power reports:

A survey of 1,200 voters in 40 traditionally Republican congressional districts now held by Democrats [] shows Obama’s post-election honeymoon reaching a rapturous stage, with 44 percent of voters strongly supporting his policies. [Another 26% “somewhat support” his policies. –ed]

A full 64 percent favor his economic plan, compared to 27 percent against. And precisely that same proportion favors the stimulus in 13 states that are expected to have competitive Senate races in 2010: Kentucky, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Colorado, Ohio, Kansas, North Dakota, Wisconsin and Illinois.

If DC Republicans continue to lash their fate to the SS Talk Radio, I think they can expect to see more and more of this.

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily crazy—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America will move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
