Public Doesn’t Like Incumbents, But Likes GOP Less

Posted by | September 16, 2010 10:20 | Filed under: Top Stories

Greg Sargent has the New York Times poll that shows that in spite of the “throw the bums” out mentality, the public likes Republicans even less.

The new New York Times poll highlights the Dem conundrum: There’s widespread disapproval of Obama’s performance on the economy (51 percent) and a widespread desire to “throw the bums out,” which is to say, replace their member of Congress (55 percent).

But the internals show the public disapproves of the GOP even more (68 percent), overwhelmingly thinks the GOP lacks a clear plan to solve our problems (72 percent), and opposes GOP policies like extending the Bush tax cuts for the rich (53 percent).

So Democrats should stop acting nervous and folding in order to appease Republicans on tax cuts, as they appear to be doing.
