Republican Honeymoon Over

Posted by | January 20, 2011 10:14 | Filed under: Top Stories

First Read makes the case that the GOP honeymoon was trés short.

…in the new NBC/WSJ poll:Obama’s approval is at 53% (where he hasn’t been since before those summer town halls in ‘09, that’s 18 months ago); confidence that the economy will improve in the next 12 months jumped eight points from last month; and the Dem Party’s fav/unfav went from a net negative (37%-41%) to a net positive (39%-35%).

Only 25% say the Republicans in Congress will bring the right kind of change (versus 42% who said that about the Dems in Jan. 2007, and 37% who said that about the GOP in Jan. 1995). In addition, a majority (55%) believe congressional Republicans will be too inflexible in dealing with Obama, while an equal number (55%) say Obama will strike the right balance. And then there’s this: The GOP’s fav/unfav has gone from a net positive in December (38%-37%) to a net negative now (34%-40%).
