Its just amazing how fast the Dems have lost support with the Indy's. After Bush totally ticked them off and they voted for Dems, there was a perfect opportunityto really get the Indy's on board for a long time.......but the far left agenda has totally reversed there thinking.

As I've said many times on this site.. Americans are pissed with everyone in the political class. GOP is only benefiting because they are the out of power party. They'd be wise to run more Brown/McDonnell/Christie type campaigns in the future. Solid ideas, happy warrior stuff that stands firm on cultural issues, but downplays them because of their divisive nature.

Funny how if this had good results for Obama it would be a crappy poll because it just looked at adults and not Likely voters like Ras. But We all like confirmation of our views.

It does show how fast the public can turn, so if he can lose them that fast after Bush did, I wouldn't be counting chickens to fast. There's still a lot of time for Repubs to lose them, or Obama to win them before 2010.

CUW,
Good post, I completely agree. The McDonnell, Brown, Christie model must be followed. Christie and McDonnell are pro-life, Brown is kind of.... But those and other social issues have been downplayed and they have just showed how much better their economic plans are and its worked. Must be kept up

Yup, I can see McDonnell running for higher office in the future. A true conservative in most respects and a tax cutter and small government type. Christie is similar to McDonnell and most republicans.

A true small government conservative is against war. You can't have a small government when you are spending billions and billions of dollars in pointless wars.

Republicans want youth support? Run big time candidates who are fiscal conservatives, anti-war and pro personal liberties. Brown has 1 out of those 3. It is actually disgusting how pro-war Brown is. Him and Rudy can have it their way and invade any muslim country with a chance of having terrorists. But when they bomb us again don't falsely claim again that is because they hate our freedom.
