It looks like we're going into 2008 with some seriously Democratic-leaning voters.
That is, without even knowing the candidate voters would prefer a Democrat by about 18 percentage points. 65% of people think the country is headed in the wrong direction and only 25% think it's going in the right direction. If you look carefully you see even the Republican base is divided half for and half against the Democrats. Now if we can just keep Hillary from screwing this advantage up.
It just goes to show, the American people do not like Republican governance. Via Kos
and from NPR
Americans hate Republican governance, and they hate Bush's war. just check out the latest polling
it's the worst ever for Bush.
Just 21 percent approve of President Bush's handling of the war, the lowest number he's ever received, and an 8-point drop from just a month ago.
Opposition to the war is now taking on historic proportions, with 62 percent saying it was "a mistake" to send U.S. troops to Iraq - slightly more than told a Gallup Poll in 1973 that it was a mistake to send U.S. forces to Vietnam.
Seventy-one percent say the war is going badly, including 39 percent who believe the war is going very badly. Just 25 percent say it's going well. The negative assessment of the war was shared by a majority of Republicans, Democrats and Independents.
Sixty percent think that Iraq will never become a stable democracy - the highest number ever - while 85 percent now characterize the situation there as a civil war.
Well, Bush won't admit Iraq is a civil war, but sadly reality has a liberal bias. Everyone else seems to be able to smell the shit sandwich and he's looking more and more like the Worst President Ever.
