The survey, available on the Democracy Corps website and not yet publicized or reported, was reviewed by Brian Faughnan of The Daily Caller -
According to Democracy Corps, likely voters have a sharply negative view of the president’s health-care and economic plans, and a far more favorable view of Republicans than they did a few months ago. Because Democracy Corps was founded by Democrats James Carville and Stanley Greenberg, the firm’s findings have significant influence in national Democratic circles.Read the survey at Democracy Corps here.
Democracy Corps surveyed more than 1,000 voters nationwide, including more than 800 likely voters. The group asked voters to identify themselves as “warm” or “cool” on parties or proposals. Fifty-two percent of likely voters described themselves as “cool” on the president’s health-care plan, against just 34 percent were “warm.” When it came to the president’s economic plan, 35 percent were warm against 49 percent cool. The findings are consistent with other national surveys, which show the health-care plan currently under debate to be widely unpopular.
The survey also confirms the continued deterioration of the standing of Democrat House incumbents. In a comparable Democracy Corps survey conducted last August, likely voters had a warm attitude toward their incumbent House Democrat by a margin of 18 points. For Republicans incumbents, the number was 16. In the current survey by contrast, likely voters gave their Republican incumbent a 19-point edge, while Democrats slipped to 11 points. That’s a shift of 10 percentage points in the relative standing of the two parties in a little more than 4 months.
Not looking good for the Obamaites.
